Increasing clouds, with a high near 70. Northwest wind 6 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
No, that is not a typo. The high is only 70 degrees today!!!
This cooler weather has summer fishing in the Driftless going strong. Creeks are clear (the rain missed us last night) and flowing with water temperatures in the high 50s to 60 area wide. Only a couple creeks are hitting the mid 60s at the end of the day (Bad Axe watershed specifically)
Tricos are doing their thing in the morning and we have found pods of fish rising to the spinner fall. Once that fades we are fishing terrestrials with great success. Plopping a hopper or beetle next to overhanging grass has been extremely effective!
Subsurface fishing is best on smaller, thinner bodied bugs. Think pheasant tail and midge larvae instead of a bushy hare's ear this time of season.
It is rare we get these water temps this time of year. Tie on a hopper/dropper and take advantage of these conditions if you can!!
Also, the summer clearance continues. 50% off men's and women's clothing and apparel as well as sales on select rods/reels/waders etc,
