Mostly sunny, with a high near 86. Southeast wind 5 to 10 mph.
Summertime in the Driftless and the fishing is good!
Creeks are clear to slightly stained as the rains mostly missed us last weekend. Temperatures are in the low to mid 60s area wide. The sun has been the limiting factor lately. Morning fishing has been great until the sun climbs higher in the sky. Mid day fishing means fishing deep, or beneath undercut banks. We have also had success casting hoppers and other terrestrials tight to the grassy banks mid day.
Hatches have slowed down a bit which is very normal for this time of season. We're still seeing some caddis and lighter colored mayflies, but the major surface action is on terrestrials right now! Small hoppers, crickets, ants and beetles are all working well on the surface as well as sunken just below the surface.
Subsurface fishing has been great on brush hogs, squogs, scuds and other heavy nymphs fished below riffles.
Just remember to fish early, fish late, and find the shady spots for better fishing during the sunny periods of the day!
