April 27th Fishing ReportA 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 4pm. Mostly sunny, then becoming cloudy during the afternoon, with a high near 70. East wind around 6 mph.
Creeks are very low and clear with temperatures in the low 50s.
The cloud cover has trout feeling much more comfortable and they are being a bit less fussy lately. We continue to see midges, olives, and caddis hatching. Normally the cloudy days are better mayfly hatch days, but we are still seeing emergences of caddis even with the darker days.
Don't forget to move your flies. Fish are really picking up on twitched and skittered flies!
This weekend is regular season opener. It can be one of the busiest weekends out there. Please remember Driftless courtesy.
Do not hop upstream of another angler (called high holing). Once you start fishing upstream of somebody then their day is done, you have essentially cut them off.
Respect landowners! Please do not block gates, access roads, driveways etc. Leave gates closed, and do not cross a field that isn't public property. We are fortunate to have angler friendly landowners here, we need to work hard to keep everyone happy.
