What is a Remnant Creek?

REM or Remnant refers to an area in protected tract of land whose fishing habitat is preserved.  These Remnants are mainly along trout streams for cold water species like Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout and Brook Trout.  These Fishery Areas are scattered throughout Wisconsin with an estimated 12,000 acres with some having natural springs.  They are important spawning grounds for the species they harbor.  Some of these Remnants provide easements through private lands to give the public access to fish these waters.  Remants are typically open as Wisconsin Public Land for both hunting and fishing grounds but always check the local rules and regulations first for that time of year.
