I have land in Richland County and have spent all of my life fishing trout in SW Wisconsin. Everytime i do fish i bring trout home to eat. Love them and really dont care what other people think. I catch a trophy (and i have) it goes on the wall. Now a days the good thing is they have fibeglass replicas. Now i can photo weigh and release the big guys. I still take fish home to eat.

I prefer cloudy windy days for fishing trout. Today is not one of those days.

On the way back from town, I stopped at a few bridges to check on trout activity. As things turn out, they had all already eaten.

Then I stopped at the hole that has yet to provide any action yet this season.

I blame it on the otters.

On the third cast, I landed what could only be described as a shy trout. I based this behavioral bend based on the number of times he jumped before meeting me.

At 13 inches, I decided to take him home for lunch.

This brook trout had nothing in his belly.

Tight lines !

Going to be fishing in Oconto County and Shawano County June 29-July 2. Does anybody mind sharing a little bit of information about trout fishing up here to a beginner fly-fisherman looking to hook into some trout? I have some nymphs, wooly buggers, and assorted dry flies so I think I'm set on flies; I also have waders and everything. I really am just looking for advice on what are the best streams to hit up and maybe some advice on fishing my flies. Not looking for secret honey holes or anything, just some information to get me going in the right direction. Please pm me so we don't muddy up the report thread.

Thanks and Tight Lines, Jake

I made the rounds this morning. The first hole had no fish. The second hole had a fish who wanted to fight.

It was a 15 inch brook trout.

The third hole has produced no fish this year, but has in the past. I landed no fish, but I did manage to see one of them rise. It was too short.

Neenah creek was full of minnows. No trout were interested in my rapala.

Went out on the Rush River this past weekend, we caught probably 60 fish between my brother and I. The majority of them were in the 14-15" range with the biggest being 17'. We were having good success on crawlers until we ran out and switched to spinners and continued to do well.

Made it out to the Coon Valley area yesterday with Pa. We hiked in a ways to get away from the bridge-hole anglers and were rewarded with a great day. Dad only fished about 100 yards of stream in 4 hours, but still caught about 8 or 9 trout. I walked a bit further and fished a few more holes, moving on when the bite slowed down. I didn't count, but I know I caught at least 10 on spinners and probably twice that on crawlers. By keeping a tight line, I could make sure they were lip-hooked, although I missed a lot that way. I baked up my portion of the ones we kept last night and wolfed most of it right down - awesome. Gotta get out trouting more often! Cool

Fished a section of the BEC on Friday. I started in late morning (about 10am) and took a break for a couple hours around noon, returning around 3pm. During the 4 hours I was on the water, I saw 5 rises but no hookups for me. There were definitely some fish in there, but not as many as I hoped. I realize my timing was probably half my problem, but sometimes you gotta fish when you can.

The BEC is a tough one due to the pressure it gets and the major fish kills from farmers every 3-4 years. That's why I put back every fish I catch there, but I doubt everyone else does the same. It would be pretty easy to fish it out completely in a couple months.

Another great weekend in the driftless region. Hit some old streams and some new streams.

Crooked Creek. Used to be one of my all time favorite streams. Fun to fish and lots of fish. Fished it for an hour yesterday, VERY few fish sightings, no rises or no fish. Not sure what happened to this creek but its disappointing. If anyone else is doing well let me know. You won't hurt my feelings.

Big Green. Love this stream but it was like a parking lot yesterday. Managed to find a few hundred yards without a car in it. Got 3 strikes on dries, still fun to fish with some great holes.

Little Green. This stream holds great potential, unfortunately the DNR has let it go. Definitely not easy to fish but I'd rather go there than wait in line at the Big Green. Great holes with a lot of rock and almost no drainage from farmland into it. The DNR should make an effort to stock this, I never saw one fish and I fished it hard.

Borah Creek. Decent trout population. Hard as hell to fish, lots of trees. You will have the place to yourself though!!

Until next time.

Trout are no different than any fish other than they tolerate less environmental change making them more susceptible to a massive kill or a decline in reproduction . Taking too many of any species will effect the waterway your on. Bottom line is don't be a pig and we all can play nice and have plenty of eaters and releasers for everyone to enjoy. You want to preach , save it for Sundays......

Well, this is an interesting debate (pretty one sided now). I think both sides of the argument have valid arguments.

I am from the Milwaukee area, but frequent the driftless area in the spring and summer. Yes, many of these creeks are loaded with fish. The DNR and landowners have done an excellent job making this area of the state one of the greatest fisheries in the midwest. I usually cpr all the trout I catch in this area, but maybe once a year will keep one or two. I don't think there is anything wrong with a keeping a few fish a year. On the otherhand keeping your limit everytime you go out is just downright uneccesary, especially if you are going out at least weekly. Imagine if everyone did that on a sensitive stream? It would make a dent. A lot of people have mentioned that its there legal right to keep their limit. That is correct, but I know way too many people that just keep there limit to say they caught there limit, and 100% of those people don't NEED to rely on eating trout evey week. Keep in mind a lot of the laws and limits the WDNR has in place are strongly influenced by the public. If people want to keep fish then the laws will reflect on that. Doesn't mean its ethical.

Fortunately, the driftless area is not as heavily pressured as it could be and I think many people I run into have a cpr mentality or keep only a couple fish a year. Lets keep this resource as good as its been over the years.

I don't think Thermo was neccisarily bashing just sharing his opinion and he did apologize so I don't know what the huge fuss is about.

I'll be out there this weekend, tight lines everybody!

Everyone in this state has the right to keep the legal limit of trout.

There is nothing unethical about keeping trout - to suggest otherwise is laughable.

(Not to mention they were browns - which are practically a warm-water species)

Way to go on the trout thermo!

I used to post pictures of my nice trout that i caught on here a couple years back, way to many people bashing everyone else and now i usually just visit this site once a month to see pictures others read, i usually last about 15 mins and remember why i stopped coming to this site.

If you would like to tar and feather me and throw stones in person, I'll be volunteering at the Kids Fishing Day at the Great Lakes Visitors Center on June 7th.

Will be working in the Catch and Release booth, of all things.

Cheers, JS
