New London Rivers

The Little Wolf River and the Wolf River at New London provide a spectacular natural waterpark setting for tubing, canoeing, kayaking, or fishing.

Google Maps best shows the Little Wolf,  (big) Wolf, and  Embarrass rivers around New London.


The area rivers boast many opportunities to catch that trophy fish!  The legendary “Walleye Run” on the Wolf River in the spring of the year boasts some of the best and earliest walleye fishing in Wisconsin.  The Wolf River keeps the fisherman busy with white, small mouth, large mouth, and rock bass.


Boat Launches and Fuel

Riverside Park on W. Wolf River Avenue is home to one of New London’s public boat landings.  Riverside Park is equipped with multiple boat launches, a bait shop, shelter house, docks, and restrooms.  Docks are also found downtown at Taft and Loss parks.  

Boat fuel is available at the the Waters Supper Club. Moor your boat there and stop in for a bite to eat.

New London also offers many bait and tackle shops. Visit the links below for shops and other helpful information.

Sturgeon Trail and Spawning

Half mile long paved trail along the Wolf River, just west of New London on Highway X. It’s a great place for fishing or leisurely walks. The Mukwa Wildlife Area is on the opposite side of the road. Also, view Sturgeon up to 6 feet long, spawning for only a couple of days in early spring after the water temperatures have reached approximately 53°-59°F.
