UPDATE: There is a lot of misinformation being spread out there. We do not have bridges out, our roads are not washed away and we have clear water! (There is a bridge out in Readstown that has been under construction well before the floods and has a marked detour).
WISCONSIN"S SEASON RUNS THROUGH OCTOBER 15TH. TODAY IS NOT THE LAST DAY OF SEASON!
A 20 percent chance of showers after 3pm. Cloudy, with a high near 62. Northeast wind 5 to 8 mph.
The high water has come and gone leaving the creeks flushed out and bankside vegetation pushed down making walking and wading simple! Creeks are clear to stained with only a couple running with a heavy stain. The stained water has been fishing very well as trout are quite spooky in the clear stuff.
Water temperatures are peaking in the high 50s.
Fish have been feeding very well throughout the day on a hopper/dropper combo as well as on leeches and streamers. The scud bit has really picked up steam and is especially strong on days with cloud cover.
We are also seeing fish rising to blue winged olives.
The weather this weekend looks fantastic, with cloud cover and a few showers intermittently. The sun has been the limiting factor for fishing lately but the weather this weekend should make fish very happy as well as bring the olive hatch a bit earlier in the day.
