    Default Wisconsin Driftless Report 2018

    Andrew N. report

    Had a fun day on stream. Good numbers for short day. Caught 40-50 brown's and one brookie. Fish had good average size (9-12).

    Never Too Old To Learn



    Went out with Stace Spencer again. When we went out last I picked on him a little for his lure selection and size of lure. I called his lures "sharks" because they were much bigger that I typically throw. He caught more trout the first time we went out and he did the same this time. The only thing different from the earlier outing was Stace landed some really nice browns today. No more picking on him for lure selection or size and color.






    He landed 17 browns from 11am to 2:30pm. Was very sunny the entire time. Of course the clouds moved in as we finished. I caught 10 browns but I only casted about a third of the times he did.






    My only brown over 15 inches to hand. Lost a really nice one on the second cast.





    The sun played heck with us today. Was 46 degrees by 1pm and stream temp was 40 at 2pm. Really long walk. Lots of sitting and watching for me. Not another footstep to be seen.

    Heads up for the cellphone crowd!!!

    That cellphone photo has GPS coordinates embedded in your photos if you don't turn it off.

    I visited my 90 year old mother today and hit a couple places I had not hit in a while. I also went back to the area I spooked that huge female brown a week ago. She was not home but quite a few others were home.



    Caught a dozen trout in this hole. One light colored brookie about 14 inches...loaded with gill lice and another smaller brookie with gill lice.



    Caught 5 browns from this hole. One was about 17 inch skinny male brown that didn't want its photo taken.









    Two hours of fishing yielded 27 trout. Was 42 degrees and cloudy.
