EDIT 4:45: Creeks to the north were clear to a fishable level about mid day. Some of the medium sized creeks have lost their murk and are now fishable with a heavy stain (leeches and scuds!). We're still have sunny skies and rain is still not predicted to hit until tomorrow afternoon. Lots of positive reports on the Coulees and other smaller streams from mid day! Of course there will be muddy water out there, especially on the larger bodies of water, but there is water out there that is in good shape (even caddis hatches on a couple). Get out of your comfort zone and explore on days like today!
EDIT: 2:00 Rain hit hard this morning, but the storm was very brief. Guides found stained water and fish already this morning on some smaller, upper sections of creeks. Things are dropping and clearing quickly and there is no more rain forecasted for today (it is sunny in Viroqua as I type this). The photo is from Nick's trip this morning.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 81. Southwest wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
The rain today is a narrow band that is currently north of us (as of 7:15 am). The storm looks to be very brief and should not do any damage to our creeks. We will keep you updated!
With the switch in weather, look for olives to show up today with a smattering of caddis and craneflies.
Subsurface fishing will be quite good on leeches and scuds with the cloudy day along with the normal nymphs that have been working (brush hogs, pink and purple belly pheasant tails).
We are not flooded! The flood warnings you see on weather reports are for the Mississippi river, not our trout creeks. The creeks are clear and slightly low with water temperatures in the low to mid 50s.
