The Boscobel area is being featured on Discover Wisconsin, the nation’s longest-running tourism TV show. Premiering April 5-6, “Paddle, Float and Explore—Wisconsin’s River Communities” will reach Discover Wisconsin’s broadcast network of 480,000 viewers across the upper Great Lakes region, including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Northern Illinois, and Upper Michigan. The episode was produced in partnership with the City of Boscobel, Prairie du Chien Chamber of Commerce,
Sauk City Area Chamber of Commerce and Discover Wisconsin.
The program airs locally Saturday, April 5 at 6:30 p.m. on WKOW TV 27.
“There are endless reasons why Boscobel is a splendid place to visit—especially if you’re a lover of the outdoors,” said
Arlie Harris, city administrator for the City of Boscobel. “We’re thrilled to partner with an iconic television program to help promote Boscobel’s many beautiful assets.”
Discover Wisconsin co-hosts Libby Amato, Collin Geraghty and Mariah Haberman took up various activities along Wisconsin’s River communities through Sauk Prairie, Boscobel and Prairie du Chien. The trio met up with kayak and canoe travelers, took in serene nature and vistas and stopped by several sandbars along the way.
The Boscobel segment highlights fishing opportunities along the Wisconsin River with Geraghty fly fishing with local fisherman, Steve Stahlman. Other Boscobel residents featured in “Paddle, Float and Explore—Wisconsin’s River
Communities” include Mayor Steve Wetter and Scott Teuber, owner of Wisconsin River Outings. The Discover Wisconsin crew also explored the Sanders Creek Walkway and downtown Boscobel.
“Since joining the Discover Team, Collin has been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to fly fish on camera,” said Chad Diedrick, managing director of Discover Wisconsin. “Boscobel was perfect since it’s an area Collin is extremely familiar with, as he personally fishes there in his free time.”
