May 26th Fishing ReportSunny, with a high near 68. Northwest wind 7 to 14 mph, with gusts as high as 22 mph.
Finally, a real rain shower last night. It dumped anywhere from 1/2 and inch to 2 inches. The heavier rain was north of I90, west of Viroqua, and in Crawford County.
Look for fish on the stained water to eat worm patterns, leeches, and larger scuds. On the clear to stained creeks it will be business as usual with fish feeding on beetle/dropper as well as some caddis and lighter colored mayflies in the evenings.
With the bright sun, look for the best surface fishing to be in the evening when the angler of the sun comes off the water. During the day, focus on shaded areas, undercuts and the broken water in the riffles and the runs below.
