This is a spot I loved to come trout fishing as a kid, and still do today. Now you get the chance to check out this location. It may not seem like much upon arrival, but hang around a few minutes and odds are that you’ll see deer in the distance, or ducks, geese, herons and cranes flying overhead only to land in the river near you.
This may seem like a quick park and grab when you pull up, but you’ll soon see that there is more than meets the eye at this location. Will you take the leap of faith, or find an alternate route? I gave this a difficulty of three (3) because of the proximity to water and barb-wired fence you’ll need to work your way around. I have adjusted the terrain from a 3 to 4 after a fellow cacher much wiser than I noted the terrain warranted a higher terrain rating. The cache itself is located within the Fritz Road right-of-way, but the land surrounding the river is public fishing grounds so feel free to bring your fishing pole and tackle to see what you can catch (WI fishing license needed of course).
I have the "May Require Wading" attribute turned on, but that would only be the case if flooding should occur. The majority of the time that attribute will not be applicable. Parking should be a breeze as most of the traffic you’ll see here will be tractors, farm pickups and bicycles.
