Weyauwega is a small town in the heart of Wisconsin. It is a town of about 1800 people, so pretty small. This is the town that I grew up in for the past 22 years until I recently moved to Minneapolis, MN.
Weyauwega also borders with the neighboring town of Fremont. So the school district name is Weyauwega-Fremont.
We have the privilege of having one of the best rivers in the state coming through our area. The wolf river is a awesome source of recreation, fishing and hunting. Fremont is renowned for its fishing and has been named the "Whitebass fishing capital of the World" and the walleye fishing is wonderful too!!
Maybe the only thing Weyauwega may be famous for is the great train derailment in March of 1996.
Early in the morning a train traveling through the town derailed with a good percentage of the train having propane cars. To make a long story short there was enough propane cars derailed to blow up the entire town. The town had to be evacuated and we were not let back into our house for about 3 and a half weeks. Being in the seventh grade at the time I thought it was the coolest thing in the world. It was like a long vacation for the kids.
This is a great picture of the Wolf River right before the night sets in.
- Pros:great area of the state
- Cons:lived there to long
- In a nutshell:good little town
March and April brings a great time to the Weyauwega-Fremont Area. The fishing is great because the Walleye are moving... more travel advice
