FISHING REPORT
8/22/15 7:17 PM CST
Today, I attended the trout committee meeting of the Wisconsin Conservation Congress.

The fish biologist from the DNR told us some grim news about the future of brook trout in the central sands region.

Due to climate changes, the model indicates that the shallow aquifer of the central sands region will warm to the point that the trout streams will be too warm for the survival of brook trout. The model indicates this will occur around 2060.

Not long ago, I saw a map of the high capacity wells in Wisconsin. There is a lager number of them in the central sands region.

Adams County has 97 miles of trout streams. How will the loss of the brook trout affect tourism ? Will the warming aquifer affect the approval of new high capacity wells ?

Will it be an issue if native brook trout are replaced by brown trout that can survive in the warmer temperature streams ??

I stepped into the trout stream ( Adams County) to check on the brook trout population. I caught about a dozen trout, but no legals. All released. No browns.

No mosquitoes.

Most trout were 10-12 inches long. They preferred the brook trout colored rapala over the rainbow pattern. I need to remind myself to slow down the presentation.

A nice way to spend the afternoon.

Tight lines !!

Awesome tiger trout and wonderful experiences I'm assuming! I'd love to get one eventually myself.

one_more_cast, I'm not sure if they actually ever produce their "spawning colors" because they are hybrids and also sterile. Never thought about that.

Wow that's a lot bigger than I thought it was from the first pic, great fish, and dude those pics are great compared to mine! Probably because the pics I have of mine I took with one of those waterproof disposable cameras lol.

Thank you all for the feedback confirming my Dad's tiger trout! I wish I would have had a better camera with me because these pictures really don't do justice for how beautiful the fish was. I'll have to go back in September and try to catch it again in it's spawning colors!!! Big Smile

That is a beautiful little Tiger, congrats! I caught a small one about 5 years ago but the colors were much more pale than that, not a great looking fish but one I will always cherish. I'm not the type that hangs fish on the wall for decorations but if I ever get a decent size Tiger with good markings he might get stuffed. Only thing is I don't even know if it's legal to keep one.

"Is it a tiger trout??"

Sure looks like it. I'd contact your fisheries biologist in that area, see if they stocked some in your stream...? Wiki says they stopped stocking them in Wisco back in the 70's... so a good chance it's a wild hybrid.

Cheers, and interesting fish! JS

Went fishing with my Dad yesterday and he caught this beautiful 15 1/2 trout. Is it a tiger trout?? There are both browns and brookies in the stream so I think it could be! The picture isn't the best because it was taken in low light conditions and we wanted to release it back in the water quickly. Any confirmation would be appreciated!

Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 91° - 95° F Water Temp: 61° - 65° F
I fished Camp Creek and Elk Creek (Crawford county) on Saturday. Water levels are low, especially on Elk Creek. Hot as hell, lots of grasshoppers out. Managed to catch a few 7-9" browns on both creeks using a hopper. Saw very few rises and very few fish on either creek. I remember now why I stopped fishing Camp Creek. It's a beautiful creek with tons of potential, I just think it has been fished to death

Always fun and will scout new streams next time out.

Fished the Onion River and caught a decent number of brown trout- no size however as the biggest was maybe 12". I did have a few follows from bigger fish. All fish were caught on Spinners (after losing patience with my fly rod once again).

The rainy day and cloudy water sent me to our stream. Only 2 mosquito bites.

I hooked one brook trout about 10 inches long that spit the rappel. Then I landed his twin brother further downstream.

The weeds are tall. Lots of sign of beaver. That will be interesting later this winter.

Tight lines !!

Fished a small stream near La Crosse this morning. Water levels are low and lots of vegetation has overtook the stream, but still managed to catch quality numbers of trout! I brought the gopro along, so check out some of the footage I got from the trip. Trout can still be caught in the "dog days" of summer, so GO GET EM!
