Trout streams just can’t seem to catch a break!!! With snowmelt from the last blast of winter and rain for the next three days, expect water to be high and off color. Panfish are in shallow now so if you need a fix go hook up on some sunfish!! Carp are also starting to come
A report from a customer of ours who fished the Rush yesterday. “I fished the Rush yesterday for 5 hours from mid-morning to mid-afternoon. When I arrived, the river was high and only slightly hazy. Water visibility was 18” or so. Fish were quite active and podded up. Almost without exception, if I caught
Flows are just starting to get good! Today’s warm temps will melt a bunch of snow that is still in the shade, so streams will bump back up a little bit again. The Kinni is coming back up a little bit but was fishable yesterday. The Rush should be pretty darn fishable by this weekend.
Rivers and streams are currently flooding. The Kinnickinnic is currently flowing at 10 times its normal flow. I would imagine the Rush and all other streams are flowing heavy right now and not fishable. On the bright side this rain has really knocked down the snow levels.
Our guide Aaron was out fishing yesterday and said it was great! Nymphs were the ticket, pink squirrels, anything with purple on it and grey scuds. As we get into the next few weeks the temps are looking pretty good for not too much melt, yet plenty warm to get out. Fishing in the mornings
It’s go time folks!!! We are so excited, FINALLY. Temps in the 30’s and low 40’s on the way. This means that some excellent trout fishing weather coming up, not too warm to melt much snow, but plenty warm to be out fishing. The key will success will be getting out earlier in the mornings
It was a tricky one out there this weekend with the ice cover on the rivers but people did find open water to fish and from what I saw on social media plenty of fish were caught! We are going back into colder temps again and whatever ice went away this weekend will grow back
Well, its been cold. I have not really heard of many folks fishing in the last few weeks so I don’t have much to report. It is looking like next week the temps will come back up to fishable levels again! There will most likely be quite a bit of shelf ice out there after
Fishing was great this weekend with the warmer temps. Our guide Aaron was out with clients yesterday and they caught 10 fish or so on small nymphs before noon. It slowed down a bit for them in the afternoon. Water conditions are great right now. We were out this morning on some new water and streamers
