September 9th Fishing ReportShowers. High near 49. Northeast wind 7 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 18 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.
The rains yesterday were not enough to ruin fishing. Most of our creeks are in great shape, crystal clear to slightly stained. Coupled with the cooler temps and cloud cover, on paper we have perfect fishing conditions in the Driftless right now!
Terrestrials will be much slower as the cold and wet weather keeps the naturals from crawling around. Attractor foam patterns with a bead head in the mornings (or streamers and leeches....) will catch fish. In the afternoon and evening we have had some pretty solid olive hatches that are getting fish to rise.
