Partly sunny, with a high near 27. Light and variable wind becoming northwest 6 to 11 mph in the morning.
Absolutely gorgeous day in the Driftless today. Despite the colder weather, we are already getting a trickle of snowmelt.
Creeks are clear to stained with temperatures right around 40 degrees mid day. With the snow back on the ground (it should melt by this weekend) we will be concentrating on fishing rising water temperatures from about 10-2. Make sure and use your thermometer!
Midges and a few winter stones are getting fish to eat on the surface. Scuds, pink squirrels, and heavy midge larvae and nymphs are working subsurface. The creeks with stain have been really fun lately fishing streamers and leeches on too! It looks like we will get a slow melt heading into the weekend. The weekend will give us 40 degree days!
