Wisconsin's season is closed. We are fishing and guiding over in Iowa.
Sunny, with a high near 50. Southeast wind 3 to 6 mph.
Fishing yesterday was good, but only for a brief window of time. Creeks are in Iowa are in good shape flowing clear with cold water temperatures. Fishing was slow until about 11 when the mayflies (mostly size 18 olives) started to hatch. Fish were eating low riding patterns on the surface such as sparkle duns and tilt wing duns as well as emergers. They were also happily eating heavy subsurface patterns rolled along the bottom of deeper runs and pools.
Please keep in mind that there are fish spawning right now. Leave spawning fish alone, there are plenty of opportunities in the pools and runs as well as rising fish to keep you occupied. Also be careful not so step on any spawning beds!
