Did some running and gunning through eastern Iowa and western dane counties on sunday (7/15/18) night.  Was a little hesitant with thinking the water temps would be too high but the first bit of water that went over the top of my hip waders and down my leg still made me shiver which was a good sign.   Focused on areas with tough access and overgrowth.  Caught about a dozen browns on spinning tackle with an average size of around 12" with the biggest being in the mid/high teens. Everything still swimming.  Still catching on small spinners and hair jigs.  8 lb test powerpro braid tied to a 5-6 pound fluoro leader is tough to beat.  Strong enough to pull out of the inevitable snags and grass on shore this time of year.  

Have been pulling the odd brook trout here or there from the area but if anyone can point me in the direction of streams with higher concentrations, i'd be willing to trade some spots and unmarked streams throughout the driftless and also closer to madison.  Not looking for specific pools or anything just general streams, would be nice to find something else unmarked. Size doesn't matter and i'm not looking to keep anything.  

Good luck everyone, cooler air temps and a front coming through towards the end of the week - they will be snapping soon.

Finally tried a few streams in Taylor County.  Kinda sad warm water had the brookies stacked up by cold water springs and small inflows, but made fishing easy.  At least 50 trout were stacked up where a small brook entered the creek.  Caddis and mosquitoe dries caught enough to keep me busy.

Zebco Dock Demon Deluxe or Ugly Stick 3 foot rods work good. Always carry one or the other when fly fishing a stream for when you can't get a fly where you want.

Are the Trout streams around iola in  Waupaca county too dense to fly fish? Thinking about getting a small spin setup with a 3 foot rod for around red granite area. Too dense for a fly rod.

Grab some of these in the camping section or hardware store. Twist around wader stap once then when needed twist the pole on with the tag ends. Easily done one handed.
