June 28th Fishing ReportA slight chance of showers between 9am and 11am, then a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after 11am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 79. South wind 3 to 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
After a weekend of heavy rain (especially to the south), things have smoothed out and mellowed. The fish are very happy after a bit of water flushed the creeks. We are still low overall flow wise, but some more lighter rains this week should help there.
It's summertime in the Driftless. This means fishing a hopper or hippie stomper with a dropper below throughout the day is the ticket to catching fish. There are some hatches of lighter colored mayflies in the last couple hours of day, and there are some fish eating midges on the surface too.
On the creeks that are still showing a stain, leeches scuds and streamers will be very effective.
