He's pissed because he is a guide and wants fish in "his" area. 99.9% of the guides I know would never put this out there, as it will surely hurt his business. Funny, as I was just going to contact him to see about fishing. Well, I guess you live and learn. Good to see so many people respond in a positive way!

Some of those streams in the driftless have TOO many fish per mile. Don't know who needs a guide in the driftless but to each their own. Not sure the guy knows the driftless all that well after a remark like that.

I fished our local streams this morning. The mosquitoes are beginning to hatch. Despite the lack of trash, there are no trout in our local stream.

I think the problem is otters.

Please come to Adams County this winter and fill your otter tag !!!

I release some of my fish and keep others. With a minimal size of 14 inches, most trout in our backyard go back in the stream.

When I wear chest waders, I always wear a belt. Actually, it is a fanny pack that I keep my gear in. The belt prevents water from filling my waders if I go under.

Tight lines !!

Yea I'm not sure why he felt the need to be so critical. I fish several area streams and I know them well. I don't keep trout often at all, but if the mood strikes I keep a few now and then. Kept 9 all of last year. Most in 3-4 years. Dependent on the stream I'll take 2-3 home. When's there's 80 fish in a hole I don't see the harm.

Both of the recent abusive "reports" were reported to the moderators - hope they follow the rules of conduct and boot the guy.

I will keep any fish that I want within my legal limit, and I don't need folks on here lecturing me about it.

Went to a driftless stream about 2 weeks ago and kept a 15 and couple 12's. Tried a spot I have never been to last weekend and struck out - not very good water. Try again soon. Picked a bunch of crawlers the other night, so I'm ready for action. Cool Good luck, all!

It was a sunny Mother's Day morning, the air was a comfortable temperature for donning khaki shorts and a button up shirt, although unsure of what the day would bring I chose to wear jeans and a sweatshirt over a t-shirt, which I would later regret.

Admiring the sunny sky to which I'd become a stranger to over our less than ideal spring weather I slipped into my chest high waiders. I heard the roaring of the river in the distance, known to locals as Hayman falls of the north branch embarass river. I started walking through the woods which caused my body temperature to rise. Some perspiration accumulated on my brow. One minute later I arrived at the river bank and tested the water with my calibrated eye. The current was fourth seven miles per hour, perfect for entry. I stepped in and immediately lost my footing, I attempted to catch myself with my Orvis five weight nine foot fly rod and succeeded to break it in six places. I was then drug down into the river by the current, at a depth of four feet I noticed a recently hatched nymph, I didn't have a chance to note which species. Nine miles down the slowing rapid river I washed up along the bank and collected my things. I regretted wearing a sweatshirt due to the volume of water it held durring the walk back. I observed a male and female cardinal sitting in a tree. I slowly turned away to not disturb the feathered pair. It was a nice day.

cthulhu- "assuming fish were legally taken, you have no right to question people keeping fish. Especially those Creek Carp, or Brown Trout - if you prefer."

I'm not questioning the legality of keeping fish. I will, and I do most certainly, have the right to question the ethics of keeping fish versus catch and release. I don't see the beauty of that dull dead eye of a brown trout laying on shore. Just my opinion and two cents. Nothing personal towards thermo. And not to come off as a hypocrite, I've been known to whack a northern or two for the frying pan my self. If he's ever up in the area, I'll take him out for pike and panfish, my apologies.

When I've fished the driftless streams, it just seems like the creeks are so small. I wonder just how many 15" browns there are in say, a quarter mile stretch. Take a few out of a hole here and a run there, how good is it going to fish for the next person?

After chasing turkeys Sunday a.m. I decided to try my luck at trout. Found two beautiful 15" brownies on spinners. Lafayette County.

Fished the Driftless with my son this weekend. Ended up with 56 for the weekend to net. Had a really good time. Couple streams were not that great and couple that were excellent. I usually run a dry with a dropper, either a Pink Squirrel or a Pink Prince off of a Orange stimulator. Strike indicator with a hook.

Put 600 miles on my car (coming from Chicago though) and probably 10 miles on my boots. Saturday I fished 3 of my usual streams, in Crawford county. Here is the results from Saturday.

Halls Branch I got completely skunked. Not even a strike. I saw very few fish in the water. Last year I didn't do well on it either despite loving it in 2011 and 2012. I'm crossing it off my list.

Elk Creek. I caught a couple of small browns on dries. It's a great stream but also had to share it with 3 other cars. I will continue to fish it, last year I had a blast on it. ??? I'm sorry but I have to keep my last stream a secret, it has been very good to me and I love fishing it. I only caught 2 browns on dries but still a blast to fish.

Sunday.

Weister Creek, Vernon County, very disappointed. Very hard to get access to it, after driving up and down a couple of times I finally parked and started walking. A lot of flat silty water, no fish sightings at all. I could have been in the wrong place but that was my personal observation.

Warner Branch, Vernon County, Some beautiful water with a lot of nice holes, unfortunately no fish or no fish sightings, once again I could have been in the wrong spot on the wrong day but that was my observation. The stream certainly holds potential.

The last stream.???? A new stream I took a chance on. This one I am going to keep a secret also. Fantastic stream, great holes, fun and easy to fish. The perfect fly fishing stream. Caught about 10 browns and brookies on dries between 6-13". Not another person on the stream either. Out of the 40+ streams I have fished in Vernon, Crawford and Richland county this one is now in my top 5.

As we know trout are fickle. I could go back next weekend and have the exact opposite results. My theory is this. If I pull up to a bridge and look down in a deep hole under the bridge and don't see fish, that is a bad sign. Too much flat silty water is another bad sign. Keep trying new streams, my favorite streams 5 years ago. (Camp Creek, fished to death) I don't even fish anymore.

Tight lines.

White Creek (Adams County) is still dark with runoff. The water level has dropped a little, but the water is still dark. As if stained with tanic acid.

2 small trout took a swipe at the rapala. 2 medium sized browns rose to show me their colors.

Since I landed no fish, I went home feeling as rejected as a wallflower at the prom.

I did notice some beaver activity on White Creek.

Tight lines !!
