I seldom stream fish for trout in August. But it has been cool, and I needed to get outside and relax. So in our stream I went.

I had a brown trout rapala tied on and it did the trick. I saw about a dozen brook trout, mainly small ones.

I missed two fish that were more than 12 inches. The last fish was 13 inches, almost a keeper.

No brown trout.

No otters. Only one pile of beaver sticks.

Most importantly, no mosquitoes !!

Tight lines !!

I am a couple miles up from where it meets the river. I've fished this creek a lot and never have found this many here before. I also noticed a ton of 2in minnows around this time, not sure what they were, i thought about trying to catch a couple to see what they were though. The water could be warming up some, in know there were a lot of weeds growing. most of my trout come from under the banks which had a lot of over hanging weeds, so maybe they were just tucked way under there and didnt feel like coming out. I'd just hate to see the creek go to hell and taken over by pike and bass. I always have better luck early in the season or cnr season, but i didnt have a truck to pull the boat and chase ski's so i decided to head up the stream for the day.

If you are seeing a lot of SMB and NP in your trout streams it usually means that your water temp is getting warmer. If you are fishing near the mouth of a larger river you will see the species coexist. Typically, SMB and NP do not get along well with the trout.

Have you tried at night. .. Looks like there's more competition for food.. Maybe the trout had to adapt and change feeding habits. .. Wink

fished a local stream in south central wisconsin this weekend. I've been fishing this stream a lot the last few years and each time out i catch more and more smb. I've usually been able to travel up stream far enough to get away from them and then I'll start catching trout or at least moving some. the last two times it didnt seem like i could get passed the smb as i caught them as far as i went, which i bet is a couple miles. I also seen around 10 fingerling pike swiming around here and there, one 20 in. pike. Does anyone know if trout and smb will mix well in the same stream. I do not catch alot of trout out of this stream but on an average day I'll catch 3-5 between 14-20in. and have been doing this for the last 4-5 years. I very rarely get skunked with trout and its now happen twice and i've averaged at least 10 smb each time and could easily catch more if i switch up my bait.

My largest is 22 inchs, i have kept some small trout due to bad hooks sets. I guess it all depends for eaters i like the 12-14 inch type.

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.
