FISHING REPORT
4/6/14 8:59 PM CST
Got out a couple times recently. Was out yesterday with my brother with pretty bad luck. Ended the day with a chub and a bunch of panfish from a pond. No trout yesterday. Today was a different story, best day in my life! My friend got a 16" brown right away, then I got a 14" brown and the next cast a 18" brown. With 5 people today we ended with 7 browns. They were from 12 to 18". Only two were 12" and the rest were 14" and above. We also lost a lot. A 20+ right by shore. Best day this season and beat my PB with a 18". Good luck and tight lines! Cool

Fished Story Creek from CR-X bridge up river for several hours today. Did NOT do very well. Had one hook-up and couple of rolls, but could not land anything. Early season, Gulp Leeches work pretty well for the larger brookies in here, but couldn't buy a bite with them. Threw Rapalas, spinners, Gulp leeches and Gulp minnows and the Rebel Crayfish with equally bad luck on all.

I made it back out for an hour. Tried 4 different rapalas and 2 spinners - then on a whim took a dry fly I had in the bottom of my little tackle box with a sinker above it and floated it down- had 3 trout on and landed 1 - 10" brown, and 2 chubs... all this time that is what they wanted... Didn't see the big ones- and I was sneaky this time too, but oh well - didn't get skunked... Cheers and good luck all

Eckes and trdrboy- I have been out a few times already and have experienced very active trout. Maybe you should try to head out at the warmest points of the day and try using crankbaits. Eckes-If you are seeing the trout then they are seeing you...once I started treating trout fishing like sneak and stalk hunting in my early years, I started catching a lot more fish and bigger ones too! Trout and good eyes and an even better since of hearing...so take your time, move slow and low, and watch out for those loud sticks when walking out of the water. Good luck!

Eckes: Don't feel bad. I fly fished all day Sunday and never even got a strike. I don't remember the last time I got skunked. I've never fished this early but I had the itch and couldn't resist. A lot of people out in the Dodgeville area, every stream I tried had cars parked along it. The water was still pretty murky in most spots. I also tried everything on them. I think the water temp is still too cold and they are just lying dormant. I'll give it a shot in a month.

Well, my trout season thus far has been pretty slow. Tried my fav hole near my house a few times with no luck, also tried couple of other spots including Token Creek (near home for me). Nothing. Last night after I changed oil for the wife, I snuck over to my usual stream and the fish were in there! I saw at least 5 different trout- could tell by varying sizes- biggest was between 16-18"... Had smallest one on (7") to the shore but he kicked off - I threw everything in my tacklebox at them and couldn't get a bit- I am not a flyfisherman- maybe that is the problem.... Oh well, at least I SAW fish -means it is picking up for me! Good luck all!

FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Partly Sunny
This is a trip report for last weekend, March 21st-23rd. Having traveled down to the Driftless Region from Northern Wisconsin, it was nice to see the majority of the snow melted. With the snow now in liquid form, in the creeks, they were high and colored up. This made for some very fun streamer fishing. White, Black, Brown, Olive...the color didn't seam to matter. Just put the streamer in the tailout of the hole or near a piece of wood and more often than not there was a hungry brown waiting. Most fish were very aggressive, taking many swipes at the fly before hooking up. Made for a great weekend of fishing!

What size scuds do you throw ? I made a few size 18 midges and I can hardly see them ! Definitely gonna need the reading glasses to tie one on. And I see some folks make them in sizes smaller than 20 !

Driftless Area Fly Fishing, Lacrosse, Vernon County's Went the weekend of March 22-23, water temp can range from 38 to 47 degrees. fish will start to bit with temp over 40, all streams should be pushing this 40 range and maybe more within a week or two. it has been a slow thaw, might find some streams and rivers up some, but it has been a very good thaw. Use flashy type scuds, Pink squirrels are the best. Stop by Driftless Angler in Viroqua for more up dates, but any scuds should be working well, 9- 10 in the morning to late after noon. be kind to the land owners, watch where you park and don't ruin it for everyone for the year. Good luck, bring some good gloves. Many new items at Driftless and bugs. Should be a good year for everyone, Coon Creek in Coon valley is a great spot with still some work to do yet, watch for Trout Fest later in the summer in Coon Valley. Thanks everyone and take a kid fishing while you are at it. Coulee Region Trout Unlimited.

Fishrox303 onion is your best bet but keep in mind up river from Hwy.E is artificial only and 15" min. But that area is zoo after the opener so I tend to stay away from it. The pigeon and sheboygan is great for stealhead this time of year if you want something alittle bigger, fly and spinning gear work equally well on both. I use spawn my self but to each there own. PS. If you wait to long and the big crowds show up it gets a lot harder to catch them.
