A beautiful day to end a beautiful season of a beautiful hobby. Till next year fellow trout fishermen!

Pike's Creek in Bayfield County has a decent level, as does all of Chequamegon Bay. I waded up from Hwy 13 to the Red Dam.
I encountered no fish.
The bay needs to cool off a few more degrees before fish enter the streams.

After fishing Black Earth in several different spots all summer long w/no luck except for many sightings and quite a few near misses, I finally nabbed a few last week. Trick was I switched from silver to gold blade, and tried to get it to wobble a little to look like an injured grasshopper as they were all over the place! I also snapped-off one of the barbs, so both were hooked perfectly on front lip & still swimming thankfully. Hope to get out once or twice again before season ends on Sunday.

I don't know why I find it fun to buy Mystery Tackle Box and try to catch a fish on every bait from it but today was a day when my reliable spinner only landed two small fish and everything nice I caught was jigging plastics or spoons.

Fished a looonngg stretch of a small Portage County stream last Wednesday. Fishing was decent several fish of keepable size. Buddy took home two for the pan. We had to hike more than fish the last hour of the trip as I misjudged the time to hike from the start bridge to the end. All browns. Fall leaf colors made the hike worth it and fish are really starting to be in full spawning colors.

I went out fishing on spring creek for about 45 minutes on Tuesday night and 1 and a half hours on Thursday morning. I was trying to catch a trout on a lure on a kids rod. I caught one fish on a kastmaster, roostertail and a rapala with no bait seeming to out fish the other bait. I hope to get out a few times before October 15th.
