Sunny, with a high near 74. Northwest wind 5 to 9 mph.
Still feeling the mild summer in the Driftless!
It was only 60 degrees when I opened the shop this morning. This continued cool weather is more than comfortable to fish in, and has water temperatures well below where they normally are this time of year. Creeks are in great shape flowing clear with temps in the high 50s in the mornings with only the largest creeks hitting the mid 60s mid day.
The trico spinner fall has momentum now and our early morning guided trips are finding spinners on quite a few creeks with rising fish.
Afterwards we are fishing small terrestrials in the late morning, then switching to larger terrestrials (hoppers, hippie stompers) mid day and fishing them through the evening. Don't forget to tie on a dropper below!
Subsurface fishing has also been great as fish are still responding well to smaller scuds, brush hogs, perdigons, and midge larvae.
At night, larger streamers and mice have been getting very aggressive eats and there have been some larger fish showing up again.
