Driftless Area - November 24th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Snowy
  • 26 ° F 
  • Fishing: Poor
Snow this week, travel will be dicey today (Monday).  This is the time of year that the fish are spawning.  Please either choose not to fish and leave the fish alone, or make sure you leave any beds alone and fish below them.
  Remember Wisconsin's season is closed.  

 
Driftless Area - November 21st, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly sunny
  • 26 ° F 
  • Fishing: Poor
 Fishing will peak a bit this weekend with some warmer temperatures Saturday and Sunday.  There will be a bit of snowmelt and possible rain/sleet too.  Not too shabby for November weather fishing over in Iowa as long as the precipitation doesn't come too hard and too fast.
  Scuds, Leeches, midge larvae, pink squirrels and possible surface activity on small midges and olives in the afternoon.
 
Driftless Area - November 14th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly sunny
  • 24 ° F 
  • Fishing: Poor
 It's cold.  As in break the ice free from your guides every 5 casts cold.
  You can catch a couple fish subsurface, but are much better off waiting for a bit of a warming trend.  Watch for temperatures to get at or above freezing and a cloudy night that will keep some heat in for better fishing over in Iowa.

Driftless Area - November 12th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Partly cloudy
  • 26 ° F 
  • Fishing: Fair
 Cold and light snow area wide.  Wisconsin's season is closed.  Iowa is open.

  Fishing is slow in the mornings, then turning on a bit in the afternoon as the sun warms the waters.
  Please be careful as this is spawning time for the wild brown trout and brook trout.  Please don't harass spawning fish and leave the beds alone.
  Subsurface midges and scuds as well as leeches.  There are also sporadic hatches of midges in the later afternoon.
 
Driftless Area - November 10th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Cloudy
  • 48 ° F 
  • Fishing: Fair
 Fishing through this cold front will be pretty mediocre until the afternoon when the air and water temperature have warmed up a bit.  Then fish will get moving chasing bugs.  Today is the last chance at good fishing for a few days.
  Fish slow and deep most of the day, until you see some midges flying around, then switch to more emergers and possibly dries.

Driftless Area - November 7th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly cloudy
  • 44 ° F 
  • Fishing: Fair
 Temperatures are dipping, and fishing is slowing down a bit.  The window between 10 am and 4 pm is still the time to be fishing.  This weekend will be the warmest weather for the next few days.
  Fishing deep and slow is key until we get some warmer and sunny days that will get fish looking up to midges and a smattering of olives over in Iowa.  The cold weather will keep the crowds away (finally!).
