Paradise Springs is a natural spring where the water table below reaches the surface. As much as 30,000 gallons of water flow from Paradise Springs each hour keeping the temperature around 47 degrees year round. No matter how harsh the winters get, Paradise Springs never freezes over and until recently ice would never form on the pond any where. This unique characteristic allows Paradise Springs to open January 1st for catch and release fishing. There are very few fisheries in Wisconsin open before the early catch and release season that starts the first Saturday of March, making it an attractive destination for those who need their fly fishing fix in the middle of the winter.
