Mostly sunny, with a high near 83. West wind 5 to 14 mph.
The Driftless Split struck again last night. While Madison had about 8 inches of rain, Vernon county only received a couple. What that means is while we have some murky water this morning (the West Fork and the Bad Axe being the muddiest) things will be fishable later this morning and by the evening. And, looking at the longer term forecast we are not supposed to have any more rain, so later in the week and into the weekend are looking excellent!
Look to fish murkier water with leeches, large scuds, streamers in black and San Juan Worms. On the clearer streams fish will eat scuds, copper johns, hare's ears, and even midge larvae.
Our hatches have slowed down a bit but we are still seeing some lighter colored mayflies in the evening as well as egg laying caddis. Throughout the day fish will eat terrestrials and craneflies.
