Taken a couple of years back.
Another view of my favorite "fishing hole" on Lake Okauchee near the Wisconsin DNR public boat launch.
With such beautiful scenery, it doesn't even matter if the fish aren't biting.

    What a beautiful scene and your capture of it is outstanding, Michael! With all this color I would have a hard time putting the camera down to pick up the fishing pole. I can see why it's your favorite. I wish we had color like this here but we are mostly evergreens so the color is not great.

Here's a URL that has a little map and a red dot where Lake Okauchee is. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/49/WIMap-doton-Okauchee_Lake.png

I live in Milwaukee, and my wife and I fish there. It's only about 30 minutes from my house. Out Highway 16 west near Oconomowoc. Okauchee Lake is actually bigger than Lake Oconomowoc.

Hi Michael, great to see a Wisconsin capture! I live in central Wisconsin and our color didn't last very long this year....

Great fall image!

Thanks so much Chris and Kim, for the encouraging words. It's pretty hard to beat the colors of fall.
