September 10th Fishing ReportShowers, mainly before 1pm. Patchy fog before 9am. High near 54. Northeast wind 3 to 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.
Things are rolling along in the Driftless! Creeks remain clear to slightly stained as the rains have been steady and slow instead of coming all at once. In the afternoon, the olives have been hatching and bringing fish to the surface.
Early in the day, fishing is best subsurface on scuds, squirrels, and other thicker bodied nymphs. Leeches and streamers work very well all day too, especially on the creeks with a medium stain. Do not neglect the squirmy wormy! It fishes very well under these conditions.
On the surface, fishing a indicator attractor fly is still working, but the terrestrial bite is definitely slow due to the cooler and wet weather. We need things to dry out before terrestrials fish again. Watch for olives hatching mid day, and swing some soft hackles below the riffles.
