Mostly sunny, with a high near 73. Southeast wind 5 to 14 mph.
Another gorgeous late summer day in the Driftless! Fishing has been very good with our creeks running normal to high and water temperatures in the 50s. A few creeks are still stained, but most have dropped and cleared from the heavy rains last week.
Tricos are all but done it seems, with a few hangers on in the mornings. Terrestrials have been the main attraction with fish eating them all day long! Beetles, hoppers, crickets and ants. They all work right now. We are also seeing some blue winged olives in the evenings (the tiny 18-22 sized ones).
Subsurface has been good on bigger, ugly stuff like leeches and San Juan worms. On the clearer creeks, scuds, frenchies, and midge larvae are working well.
We do have a few guide trips open this weekend if you want to brush up on some skills for this time of year!
