Mostly sunny, with a high near 45. Light and variable wind becoming east 8 to 13 mph in the morning.
Things are pretty darn good in the Driftless right now. We have warm temperatures that are heating up the creeks and the ground slowly and steadily. Most of our snow is gone and there isn't a ton of mud to walk through.
Creeks are clear and a touch low with water temperatures hovering right around 40 degrees. Because of the lack of snow right now, fishing starts late morning and will last much longer as snowmelt does not drop water temperatures as quickly.
It is still midges and a few tiny black stones hatching, but with the conditions we should see olives pop up in the next week or so unless we see a massive cool down.
Subsurface fishing is best on heavy bead heads fished right on the bottom. It seems like even an inch or two off the bottom and fish will not eat.
Most fish are in the pools early, then will push out into the runs to feed mid day.
