A quick note on the weather. Today will be hot and humid as the clouds gather up moisture for the rain tonight. It is not forecasted to rain a ton as of now, but it could come all at once.
This is our very normal summer pattern now. Heat and humidity builds up, it falls out as rain quickly, then things cool down and fish extremely well.
Looking ahead, next week the forecast will be right around and below 80 degrees every day with some night time temps getting down into the high 50s! This is a week to focus on trout fishing in the Driftless, especially if the rain falls and bumps water levels up a bit! Time to call in sick....
