August 12th Fishing Report

Sunny, with a high near 82. Light southeast wind becoming south 5 to 9 mph in the morning.
  THings are pretty good out there in the Driftless.  Only a couple creeks are warm enough to avoid (West Fork, Bad Axe watershed).  Bring your thermometer and don't bother fishing anything over 65 degrees.  We're in the dog days of summer right now so the sun will be your limiting factor.  Fish early, fish late, and find some shade.
  Tricos are showing up a bit more.  We're still not over the moon excited about them, but they are becoming more noticable in the mornings.  Terrestrials and foam attractor patterns with a dropper are still the way to fish.
