Given water productivity, fish growth potential, and higher minimum length regulations, fish inhabiting these waters should attain greater sizes. Anglers fishing these waters will have a better chance of catching a “quality” fish. Open water fishing favorites include: small and large mouth bass, bluegill, perch, white bass, northern, walleye, lake trout, brown trout and muskellunge.

Deep Water Treasure Through the Ice

PHOTO COURTESY OF MIKE NORTON

FROZEN AND BIG, Green Lake offers anglers a unique opportunity for deep water species typically not available to weekend anglers in the Midwest. Famous for the lake’s population of great tasting and trophy Lake Trout, Green Lake has become a regular destination and tradition to anglers seeking a unique experience on the hard water. The lake also yields tremendous catches of freshwater Cisco. This member of the Whitefish family is delicious when smoked or broiled. Both species are readily targeted through the rental of a furnished, heated shanty by one of the lake’s three area outfitters. Mike Norton’s Fishing Adventures will provide a heated ice shack and all the equipment necessary for jigging and bait fishing Lake Trout. The Norton “Ice Train,” an ice sled pulled by specially-equipped Suzuki Samurai with flotation transports the anglers for a half or whole day of fishing. Mike’s specialty is providing an affordable way for parties to enjoy ice fishing in Green Lake with no investment in equipment or any prior knowledge of ice fishing techniques. Dennis Walker Guide Service also provides heated ice shacks and full setups for its anglers. Additionally, Dennis Walker will set up your ice fishing adventure to target both deep water species as well as more traditional fare, including Northern Pike, Walleye, and panfish. The folks at North Bay Sports will guide your ice fishing party for the deep water species, but they also specialize in targeting perch and panfish and trophy pike. Joel Baranowski has years of successful open water and ice fishing experience on the big waters of this fisherman’s paradise. North Bay can also provide you with the latest in equipment, bait and refreshments for your adventures on the Lake. For anglers traveling with their own equipment and expertise, there are multiple public accesses maintained for winter driving. The most popular are the landing in the City of Green Lake, County Park on the west end of the lake, Horton’s landing in the southeast corner, and the County A landing on the lake’s east end. A word of warning and caution: Due to its extreme depth, Big Green is one of the last lakes in the state to freeze over, so anglers are forewarned to always check on ice conditions by stopping by or calling any of the area guides mentioned above. Ice conditions and location of heaves and open water can change quickly making it especially important to check on ice conditions and reports from various areas of the lake before heading out on this natural public treasure. For up-to-date ice conditions, call 800-253-7354. For a current listing of regulations specific to Green Lake, including size and bag limits, visit the DNR’s website at dnr.wi.gov/fish/icefishing.

On Saturday, June 23, after enjoying your morning and afternoon taking in Green Lake area specialties, like the lake and fine shops, head to the center of town for Summer Solstice. Beginning at 5 p.m., you will be greeted with lively music, enticing wafts of freshly prepared food, games, contests, raffles, and more.

Find these items and so much more every Friday in Playground Park beginning on May 25 and continuing until Oct. 12. Each Friday at 3 p.m., local farmers, growers, and artisans gather by the dam to exhibit the goods you crave. As the seasons change, so does the selection you will find. From Hostas, asparagus, and sweet onions, to mums, cilantro and Cabbage, it doesn’t get any more fresh than this. Aside all the produce, you will find Bison meat, grass-fed beef, organic chicken, and flavored jerkies. Like to try new things? Check out the dozens of varieties of canned items, including Honey Mustard Peppadew Relish, Sage Jelly, Giardiniera, and pickled everything! There is always a surprise in store at the market, whether it’s the widely-popular chef demonstrations by James Simmers, acoustic guitar by many artists, freshly popped kettle corn, or craft and art vendors selling hand-made items. Stop at this local hub before 7 p.m. to stock your fridge for the weekend — it’s the place to be on Fridays.

ever before,” according to newly appointed Festival Director Jeffrey Harkins. Concerts and other events are planned to run from early June through late July and will again be among the “cultural and social highlights of the summer you won’t want to miss.” Enjoyable, intimate and come-as-you-are concerts are the name of the game for the Green Lake Festival of Music this season from June 8-July 22, 2012 at Green Lake’s historic Thrasher Opera House, the rustic local Boston Barn (which is celebrating 100 years), or Ripon College. Having received state recognition with a Governor’s Award for the Arts, the Green Lake Festival has continued to develop its series of summertime concerts featuring internationally renowned artists performing classical string and wind music, supplemented by cabaret, jazz, Celtic, and other popular styles. Since 2006, the free Thomas E. Caestecker Family Series, coordinated with programs at local libraries, continues to introduce children and adults to various styles of music. Additionally, two other well-established programs will be offered again. The ASCAP-winning ensemble, the Amelia Piano Trio, will be on hand once again to run the Festival’s two-week Chamber Music Camp from July 1-14. The Chamber Music Camp is an invaluable experience open to teens and young adults. Stephen Alltop returns to serve as musical director of the Festival’s Choral Institute that runs from July 19-22. The Choral Institute is a wonderful interactive experience open to amateur and professional adult and singers alike. “This Festival serves as a great source of musical and cultural enrichment for the Green Lake County area,” Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle wrote in a letter celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Festival in 2004. “The Green Lake Festival of Music fosters a lively spirit of community involvement through a wide variety of musical performances.” For more details, call 800-662-7097 or go online to www.greenlakefestival.org.

The Best Autumn Festival in Wisconsin: Harvest Fest NO MATTER WHAT TIME OF YEAR IT IS, everyone looks forward to Harvest Fest. This two-day celebration will be held on Sept. 29-30, 2012. It’s a time when people fill the streets to indulge in all that is autumn. Enjoy a the Taste of Green Lake food faire, classic car show, kid’s games and activities, festive music, dozens of farm market vendors, and more than 100 crafters that will keep you shopping for hours. In 1988 four local retailers organized this event that has grown to be Green Lake’s most popular event. The festival is held in the entire downtown district, occupies three parks, and sprawls over the main city streets. Easily walk from one attraction to the next building your collection of crafts, produce, and mouthwatering foods. More than 100 crafters are invited to showcase their hand-made creations. Favorites include jewelry, wooden signs, glass art, and copper sculptures, among so many more. The craft locations are in each of the three downtown Green Lake parks. All that ‘crafting’ may get you hungry, so treat yourself to a cream-puff, handmade pie, or another sweet or savory item from the many service

organizations offering good eats on Saturday starting at 10 a.m. Nestled in with the crafters at Playground Park is the Sink the Bismarck challenge, and the kid’s games and activities. Back by popular demand is the petting zoo and pony rides. Your kids will enjoy bouncing around on giant trampolines or the inflatable activity zone. Have fun and support the Green Lake School District when playing a variety of carnival games. Set up along Water Street by the Mill Pond, dozens of farm market vendors display their home-grown, hand-made, or locally-raised goods. Bring home a bushel of apples, a sour-dough loaf, pumpkins, mums, and all the other fall produce you can imagine. Sample handmixed dips and spreads, and enjoy talking to the local farmers and artisans. Saturday’s Harvest Fest parade is the largest of the year with nearly 75 entries. Grab a seat on Mill Street and sit back for the show. Jugglers, marching bands, stilt-walkers, racing tiny cars, whackywheelers, antique cars, hand-decorated floats, and of course fire engines will put on a great event. And one of the most anticipated

features of Harvest Fest, Taste of Green Lake, opens its tents at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday. A street-full of area restaurateurs send wafts of gourmet food into the air. Brat-burger on a pretzel bun, butternut squash ravioli, tenderloin sandwich, and seafood chowder are just a few of the menu items you’ll find. The most common practice is to bring a friend, or family, to share all your dishes with. Also on Sunday, 100s of classic cars will line the streets on display. The Jack Taylor Memorial Car Show features 1979 or older, show condition autos. Stroll the streets and then vote for your favorite — these motorists want to win a prize! And the finale of this two-day festival is the waiter’s race. Watch as contestants run a relay race, pour wine, set a table, and navigate up a hill, all while being timed. Spectators can line the course and cheer for their favorite local waiter while they compete for the winning title. Whatever you choose to participate in, you are guaranteed a good time.

Wisconsin’s State Chili Cook-Off ENTERING ITS 30TH YEAR, the Wisconsin State Chili CookOff welcomes those with a talent for concocting the best tasting chili in the state! On Sept. 8, 2012, Deacon Mills Park will be home to over 40 teams cooking up their famous batch of red, hot, chili. Competitors from all over the Midwest have to follow strict International Chili Society (ICS) rules to be eligible. Traditional Red Chili is defined by the International Chili Society as any kind of meat or combination of meats, cooked with red chili peppers, various spices and other ingredients, with the exception of BEANS and PASTA which are strictly forbidden. Discriminating judges keep the rules in mind when selecting their winners. Cooking starts at 10:30 a.m. with judging starting at 3 p.m. Winners of this ICS-sanctioned event receive a trophy and $750 to use toward traveling to the World Champion Chili Cook-off to compete for the $25,000 grand prize. Organized by Bill Munsey and the Green Lake Rotary Club, the cook-off isn’t just for kitchen wizards. Members of the public are able to taste-test the chili after the judges have pulled their samples. Folks will also enjoy live music, with a band performing on the Starlite Stage from noon to 4 p.m. The Rotary Club will offer a few non-chili items as well as ice cold refreshments to cool mouths down. All of this serious competition has to be flanked by a good time. Chili pepper costumes, a comedic master of ceremonies, and a crowd that can bear any amount of heat, will be ready to have some fun. Join the Green Lake Rotary Club at this hot event and in raising funds to support Green Lake youth programs in the future.

THRASHER OPERA HOUSE

A Real Show Stopper highlighted the dramatic scenes on the screen. A movie was shown every night and sometimes changed as often as three times a week. By 1929, Thrasher was showing “talkies” after he installed the proper equipment for sound movies. Charlie retired from showing movies in 1939 and lived to 99 years, warmly regarded by the community. Films continued to be shown until World War II, but eventually the building languished as a warehouse. In 1994, an old, long-abandoned downtown Green Lake entertainment venue gained a second lease on life. Thrasher Opera House today emulates everything that it once stood for and remains a symbol of the history that has already passed through Green Lake, and serves as a ready participant in the history that has yet to come. The restoration of the Opera House was a huge project as the building was in great decline. Remaining historically accurate as well as meeting current building codes proved to be a challenge. In addition, only one photo of the original interior could be

found. That photo, along with some hidden existing details, helped piece things together. During the restoration, a pleasant surprise was discovered: a piece of wood installed near the stage door had been signed by every member of the cast who performed at the last play held there in 1945. The play was “You Can’t Take It With You.” The inside of the building, cream colored with accents of maroon and federal blue, features an embossed tin ceiling, a stenciled pattern along the walls, a hardwood floor, and a projection balcony. The stage has been re-floored and a missing proscenium has been replaced. The ticket window is back in its original location. Though a classically simple building on the outside, it is softly beautiful inside. Experts have rated its acoustics as excellent. As a tribute to Charlie, the building continues to be known as Thrasher Opera House. It has been designated a City of Green Lake Historic Structure, and is listed in the Wisconsin State Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places.

THRASHER OPERA HOUSE was built by Charlie Thrasher in 1910 on Mill Street in downtown Green Lake, Wisconsin. It first hosted vaudeville and traveling theatrical companies, but is best remembered for the movies that Charlie showed as soon as electricity became available, around 1912. The seating arrangement was simplicity itself…wooden kitchen chairs arranged in groups of five. These Spartan accommodations deterred no one, and people came from miles around to see the movies. At other times, meetings were held there and it was also used for school functions, including plays, proms and graduation ceremonies. As time evolved, so did the opera house. Shortly after electricity was introduced, Thrasher purchased a projection system and began showing silent films for the admission of one quarter. Audiences watched intently as a single piano player w w w. V i s i t G r e e n L a k e . c o m

Green Lake Golf

GREEN LAKE

A Tradition of Great Golf

THE TWO COURSES AT Golf Courses of Lawsonia, Mascoutin Golf Course, Tuscumbia Golf Course, and White Lake Golf Resort make up four of the finest golf venues in Wisconsin. All are within a driver and a few three-woods of downtown Green Lake, and all are members of the Green Lake Golf Pack. The Golf Courses of Lawsonia offers two 18-hole championship courses. The Links opened in 1930 offering Scottish-style links golf, with open — nearly treeless — rolling terrain, huge, quick, elevated, undulating greens, sand traps surrounding each green and giant fairway bunkers on many holes. Ten years after the Links opened it was ranked the 72nd finest course in the World. The Links ranked No. 55 “Classic” course in the Nation by GolfWeek Magazine. GolfWeek ranks the Links Course as the number three overall course in Wisconsin. 4 ½ star rating by Golf Digest. In contrast to the links-style golf, Lawsonia also offers the Woodlands. This course has tree-lined fairways, elevation 26

drops of more than 65 feet, five water hazards and 90 sand traps. This idyllic setting is home to wildlife, including deer and turkeys on the fairways, and eagles nesting in the tall pines. Lawsonia was recognized by Golf Digest as “One of American’s Best and Most Affordable Public Golf Facilities” and named “Wisconsin Golf Course of the Year 2008” by the Wisconsin Golf Course Owners Association. The Zagat Guidebook rated both the Links and the Woodlands as “Extraordinary.” Tuscumbia Country Club is the oldest golf course in Wisconsin, founded in 1896. Tuscumbia maintains a wealth of tradition for excellence. From majestic evergreens, maples and oaks bordering its fairways to its well-groomed setting, Tuscumbia offers a challenging round for any golfer. Mascoutin Golf Club is located an easy GUIDE

drive 6 miles north of Green Lake. Mascoutin offers 27 holes of championship golf on gently rolling fairways that were home to the fire-worshiping Mascoutin Indians 300 years ago. Opened in 1975 with 18 holes and adding nine additional holes in 1999, Mascoutin now offers plush fairways, nearly 80 bunkers, large fast greens and water that comes into play on six holes. Sharenberg’s White Lake Golf Resort is located just a 15-minute drive west of Green Lake on Hwy. 23. The 18-hole layout is carved out of 200-plus acres of glacier lands and is nestled among hills, woods and ponds. The course features significant elevation changes, numerous dog legs and water hazards. Take advantage of the Green Lake Golf Pack and play all five courses. By contacting a host hotel, they will take care of all your arrangements from lodging, dining, tee-times, and other group needs.
