Trout Fishing Iowa County Wisconsin 4/19

Posted by on April 23, 2011

Tuesday a friend and I ignored the crappy weather forecast and hit the road early in the morning and headed for southwestern Wisconsin.  Our first stop was at a small creek that I’ve been anxious to check out for a while now and while we didn’t run into any trout in the hour we fished there we caught a few creek chubs and found some beautiful pools that look promising.

After the first hour of catching nothing but chubs we headed to a nearby creek that I was certain had plenty of trout.  We jumped out of the car at our next spot and the snowflakes started to fall….really big, wet, snowflakes!  About a inch and a half in two hours.  Conditions where not comfortable to say the least, but fortunately the fish didn’t mind.  Almost every likely spot produced at least one or two fish, or opportunities at fish.  I was almost convinced that my fly had no hook after losing the first dozen fish I hooked.  Eventually, I switched my fly and my hook-up/catch ratio did improve, but I still was missing more strikes than I would like.  Typically, when using very small flies I can understand a fish shaking the hook here and there, but I was using a streamer with a fairly large hook!?…I’m still confused.  I still landed a handful of trout so it’s hard to complain.

    Looks like you made it happen in iowa county. Fished Richland and Vernon county for the first time this weekend. Time to get some trout on!
