August 22nd Fishing Report
Showers likely, with thunderstorms also possible after 10am. Partly sunny, with a high near 84. Southwest wind 6 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
No real rain as of now in Viroqua and the radar shows the storm heading south of us. We will keep you updated.
Creeks are clear and a touch low with temperatures in the low to mid 60s. Please use your thermometer and do not fish water temps over 65. The West Fork and Bad Axe watersheds are the warmer creeks right now and it would be wise to avoid them this weekend.
Hatches are still mid summer sparse, which is normal. A few micro olives and tricos in the mornings and evening but the main dish on the menu is terrestrials. Hoppers, beetles, ants etc. We're doing very well with our standard hippie stomper on the surface with a bead head dropped below.
Mousing has been fun lately too. It isn't a bad idea to toss a mouse at dusk just to see if one of the massive moue eaters will play!
