June 4th Fishing Report

Sunny, with a high near 89. Southwest wind 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph.
Creeks are very low and temperatures are in the high 50s to low 60s.
  It's summer weather....  Fish early and fish late and find shade to find fish.  The mid day will be hot, humid and uncomfortable.
It's terrestrial time in the Driftless.  All day long fish are eating ants and beetles (when the sun isn't directly on the water).  The evenings are giving us hatches of lighter colored mayflies (sulphurs and cahills) and a few caddis and cranes still sticking around.
  Focus on the broken water below the riffles and even into the riffles as fish will push up into the shallower water to feed, especially in the evenings.
Just remember to focus your efforts on the time of day when the sun's angler is off the water a bit.  It will be better fishing, and you will be more comfortable too!
