Mostly sunny, with a high near 70. Breezy, with a south wind 10 to 17 mph, with gusts as high as 31 mph.
Another gorgeous day in the Driftless!
The sun is starting to be both a positive and a negative. It warms the creek bed and gets the insects going early, but by mid day it is starting to slow fishing down. The best times to fish are now 9-11 and 1- dark.
We're still seeing caddis mid day, but with the wind the surface activity may be limited. Fish a heavy bead head with a caddis emerged tied behind it and you will do fine. Caddis are the main hatch, both black and tan, and subsurface fishing is best on thicker bodied bead head nymphs, scuds and leeches are still holding strong.
Creeks are running clear to slightly stained with water temperatures in the high 40s to high 50s.
