Mostly sunny, with a high near 76. Light and variable wind becoming east 5 to 8 mph in the morning.
Another gorgeous spring day in the Driftless.
Nothing much has changed over the past couple of days of fishing which is an excellent thing. Stable weather means solid fishing. The sun is your limiting factor right now. Creeks are a bit low and clear with temperatures in the high 50s to low 60s. The sun shining down on crystal clear water means fish will seek shelter mid day while they wait for the evening hatches.
Sulphurs and other lighter colored mayflies are the main course right now with a few caddis, craneflies, and terrestrials also getting fish to rise.
Subsurface fishing has been best on thin bodied nymphs with a bit of weight and flash. Things like the rainbow perdigon and two bit hooker have been good when the sun is out. Early and late we are doing well with thicker bodied patterns like the Squog and the brush hog.
Looking ahead weather wise, we are getting into the pattern of possible rain each night. Nothing horrible is forecasted and the evening showers/storms can make fishing even better by re filling the springs and possibly putting a stain on the water. As usual, we will keep you updated!
