Another great summer day in the Driftless!! If you can, this is the weather to take advantage of in our fishery. It is cooler and cloudier than normal and the fishing when the sun is off the water has been quite good!
Clouds should be overhead all day today, and a bit of rain in the afternoon means fishing all day. The sun has been the limiting factor. Even with water temperatures staying pretty stable, a cloudless sky shuts fishing down. Normally we're fishing very early and very late and avoiding the mid day sun.
Today we don't have to worry about that! The cloud cover means solid subsurface fishing all day. Smaller, thin bodied bead heads are the ticket as underwater fish are seeing midges and trico nymphs. Sprinkle in a few scuds (they are much more active on cloudy days) and you should have fish eating all day.
On the surface, attractors will be key. Terrestrials will start up later today and be slower if we get the rain. However, a bigger, bright fly on the surface will entice fish to eat.
Creeks are clear and a touch low with water temperatures hovering right around 60 degrees on average.
