Mostly sunny, with a high near 29. Northwest wind 7 to 10 mph.
Another sunny winter day in the Driftless. It will not be warm enough for any melting, but if the sun stays out all day, look for midges to hatch mid day.
Creeks are flowing clear to slightly stained with temperatures in the high 30s to low 40s. The sun is key when it is this cold out as it will warm the stream bed and get things moving water temperature wise.
Midges and other tiny dries are effective when you see rising fish. Subsurface fishing is best on tiny, heavy bead heads as well as scuds and squirrels. Don't neglect streamers and leeches fished slowly (twitch them, don't strip them) as some bigger fish are caught this time of year!
