Sunny, with a high near 45. South wind 7 to 9 mph.
Gorgeous day in the Driftless! There is not a ton of snow on the ground after the snowy weekend, and the roads are in good shape. The creeks are clear and flowing well with water temperatures in the high 30s to low 40s. The weather has started to warm up again early this week, then we get a couple days of colder normal weather before the weekend gets to a very comfortable 50 degrees!
Fish are eating scuds and bead heads fished deep as well as leeches and wooly buggers. There are midges hatching mid day on many creeks which are getting fish to rise for a short period of time.
Water temperature has become important again due to colder nights. Make sure you use your thermometer and take advantage of the mid day window of good fishing.
