Wisconsin's season is closed. We are fishing and guiding over in Iowa.
Sunny, with a high near 24. Northwest wind 7 to 10 mph.
It's cold out there, but with the sun shining it is actually quite pleasant to be outside!
There is no longer a reason to get out there early. Things have cooled down enough that water temperatures are cold. Give the creeks a bit of time to warm up and fishing will be better.
Nymphing is key and will be for the rest of the fall/winter. Roll your flies deep in the mornings, then in the afternoon start fishing the runs and even riffles.
Hatches are dwindling. There are a few midges and olives around, but the major dry activity is done until we get some warmer temperatures.
