January 24th Fishing ReportSnow, mainly before 4pm. Patchy fog. High near 34. Northeast wind 5 to 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.
It is still winter. There is about 4-5 inches of snow on the ground so getting around is a bit more work than normal. However if you need to get out and fish, it has been quite fun with the warmer temperatures the past couple of days. We had many customers come in and say they say midges for a couple hours yesterday mid day! The cloudy and overcast but warm-is weather means we should see the same over the next few days.
If rising fish are not your thing, then fish deep with thin bodied flies that have heavy tungsten beads on them. Fish these flies right below the riffles and into the runs.
Do not neglect leeches and streamers in the winter! Fish them a bit slower than normal and hang on, winter is one of the best times to catch a really large Driftless trout.
