What are some of these drainage ditches they are stocking? I agree that some of the stocking techniques used in Wisconsin not just by the DNR but WFT too are questionable, but trout stocking in a drainage ditch seems far fetched. I fish a few tiny streams for trout up north that people don't think are worth it and I pull out some nice fish there that are naturally reproducing along with a few stocked trout.

The DNR continues to stock any 'trout water' regardless of its sustainability or fishability simply so they can keep their number of 'miles of trout water' as high as possible. It doesn't matter if the water is a drainage ditch that will dry up in July (as is the case more often than you'd think).

Fished Gordon Creek yesterday. Beautiful day, lots of people out too unfortunately. Every spot on Gordon had at least 1 car parked on it. Finally drove way down stream where the creek was considerably larger and somewhere I wouldn't normally go. I was surprised how good the fishing was, ended up with a couple about 12" and a handful of 6". The water was fairly murky but a lot of bug were in the air.

Ran by the East Fork of the Raccoon outside of Beloit on my way back to Chicago. Why the DNR even bothers to stock it is beyond me. I doubt the creek could sustain trout.

Hello,

I am living in Waukesha and have recently started fly fishing for trout. I have been fishing for salmon in Milwaukee River and Oak Creek, but I want to try find some inland Browns and Brookies. Does anyone know of any water I could try in the Waukesha area? Thanks for any suggestions.

TastesLikeTrout, I would suggest that you pick up some rocks from the bottom of the stream and see what is on those rocks. Depending on what stream you are on, there might be some of the large stoneflies (pteronarcys dorsata). Maybe even golden stones. You should be able to find a pattern on YouTube (check out Jim Misuras video). I would guess that there are also some larger nymphs of the mayfly pattern. A Hendrickson or March Brown nymph are also a good early choice.

Stopped off the side of the road on my way home from work in Vernon County, 4 casts/3 browns on a jig and plastic in a deep hole. I'd say the action was hot! Could have stayed all evening but was expected at home. Probably shouldn't have stopped but glad I did!

Pics aren't the greatest, but the middle one was a fatty!

Fly fished a very clear river earlier this morning in northern WI. Caught one 10 inch brown pulling a black wooly bugger.

The bugger is good and all, but I'm looking to improve my nymphing. any suggestions for early season flies for those wary trout in crystal clear Wisconsin streams?

I've been hearing good things about the Kinnikinnic outside of River Falls, WI and the Rush River. I don't fly fish, just spinners with the fur. Where are you guys catching them?

With the nice weather hit up a local stream in the drift less. Was struggling until I figured out the pattern. Deep pools on bends were the key with the cold water right now. Wasn't worth fishing runs and riffles yet. Caught enough to keep me interested catching several large Browns. Nothing mega huge but a few upper teens fish. Fun to cast the stream in nice weather!

Stopped at my little stream again- we have new kid so I don't get to fish for a long time right now, but first 4 casts (with that ACME Kastmaster spoon) saw nice fish chasing- slowed the retrieve a bit: 18 1/2" Brown! Won't complain about that! Good hook set, good release- only fish I saw and caught but a dandy! Good luck all!

I bought a small Acme Kastmaster spoon from the fishing expo yesterday. Thought I would toss it around for a bit at a small stream in Dane county. Glad I did- 18" brown (and a 12" and 3 follows - smaller fish). Best fish I have caught in a while- obviously released. Hope I can get the pic off my phone. Good luck all

Fished a section of the pine river in a different county. Conditions were perfect but got skunked. Nice to get out and get away from ice fishing. Water levels were pretty good. Didn't help that I forgot my spinner tackle box's at home lucky had one. But wasn't my color of choice. Tyler I'll take any help I can get. In the Oconto I've caught a fair amount of trout and the wolf I have only caught about 5 trout. But this was regular season. I wish it was regular season so I wouldn't be limited to streams thanks for the help
