Patchy drizzle before 10am. Patchy fog before 11am. Otherwise, cloudy, with a high near 59. Calm wind becoming south around 5 mph in the afternoon.
Things are looking better than expected after the rains yesterday. The Madison area got pounded with rain (again!) while Vernon County escaped relatively unscathed. We only received half an inch to an inch tops. This has the creeks clear to mildly stained with only a couple muddy.
The fall has been absolutely fantastic so far! Cool temperatures, olive hatches later in the day, and happy fish.
If the clouds stay in today, fish scud patterns and leeches. When the clouds go away, switch over to smaller mayfly nymphs and midge larvae.
Look for fish rising to olives in the afternoon. Trout will also be looking up and smashing hippie stompers and training wheels.
Season runs through October 15th. Still plenty of time to get your Driftless Fix this fall.
