A Perfect Day in the Driftless

I was in no hurry to get on a trout stream in the early morning last Sunday.  I was crossing foggy streams in the morning instead of arriving on one, but I was hoping for a good caddis hatch.  My experience has been the fishing doesn’t start to get good until you feel the warm sun on … Continue reading »

Spring Swinging

Hit the Milwaukee with Adam a few weeks back and we experienced something out of the ordinary…great fishing.  Even though the water was high, cold, and slowly rising all day from snow melt, the Steelhead were in and on the grab…bigly.  Water clarity was great and very few anglers were on the water giving us plenty of … Continue reading »

North Woods Bronzebacks

I definitely caught Smallmouth fever this Summer, and as far as I can tell, I’m stricken for life.  As hard as it is to walk away from trout rising to hoppers and terrestrials in the Driftless area during the summer, I’ve been growing increasingly fond of the Smallmouth waters in the North Woods where I spent Summer’s with my Grandparent’s.   … Continue reading »
