June 27th Fishing ReportThere is fishable water out there today!!!
Sunny, with a high near 84. Calm wind becoming northwest around 5 mph.
The heavy storm in Vernon County hit around 2:30 and dropped almost 2 inches of rain in half an hour. Things blew out quickly, then started to drop and clear pretty quickly too. Since it happened so early in the day, we have quite a bit more fishable water than we expected. The larger creeks (West Fork, Bad Axe) and creeks below flood control dams remain muddy to heavily stained, while the smaller creeks and headwaters are in good shape. Clear to stained.
Fish scuds, leeches, and pink squirrels as well as squirmy wormies in the murky water. In the clear water fishing foam with a dropper below (hippie stomper and brush hog etc) will catch fish.
Hatches are sparse but having a few PMD colored parachutes is not a bad idea. Guides have been throwing ant patterns to rising fish with great success too!
