Hit two streams in Dane county on Monday.  It was quite a workout wading through the chest high grass.  Looked like there had been some flooding recently on both streams.  Lots of branches and debris above the banks.  Fishing was good on both streams.  Ended up with 12 trout in 2 hours of fishing.  An even mix of brookies and browns.  Also caught three big suckers.  All caught on crawlers and all released.  Biggest was 15.

Went out on Spring creek for a little while on Saturday afternoon. I think the water was a little warm for trout but did not take a temperature where I was fishing at. I lost one trout and caught two chubs.

Caught this very nice brook trout yesterday while jigging spoons on a stream in the western part of the state.

The morning report.

Cloudy mornings with temps of 57 with a chance of rain were made by God for only one reason.

Just as it was light, I had on the chest waders and went for a walk with St. Croix.

The water is clear and a touch low. But cold and fast and full of trout. Brook trout. Square tails. Slippery as a politician. Jumpier than a box full of Mexican jumping beans. As cooperative as a cat on the run.

I have not been out for a while. Too hot. Too many mosquitoes.

But cool with a chance of a shower changed everything.

The first hole was void of fish. One shy fish showed a little color as it darted out from under that log.

The next hole had 3 fish, one a keeper. But I was as rejected as the um...wallflower at the prom.

I changed lures form the beaded prince, to the micro jig to the brown trout rapala. They liked the old lure, but the dull hooks no longer hold fish. Time to retire it.

When the new perch floater hit the water, the fish turned in like teenagers to a pizza.

I caught around a dozen trout. The largest 2 got away and so I can say they were 14 inches. The rest were just short of that.

No sign of beaver. Lots of sign of ducks. A few new mud flats should be the ticket to free duck lunch this fall.

Time for breakfast.

@ Guitarfish and zgreenbay,

You can also get out of the stream onto private property to get around an obstruction.  Obstructions could include logjams, deep water for wading anglers or shallow water for boats, large boulders, etc.  If you were unable to safely get around the fence for some reason, it would also likely be considered an obstruction and you could exit the stream and re-enter.  When leaving the stream you have to take the shortest route possible across private land to safely re-enter the stream. 

As for the barbed wire fence, landowners are explicitly not supposed to do that to block off access to public water.  They can be reported for that.

Fished two Portage County streams over the weekend. First was a very well known river in the East-Central part of the county. Landed three or four fish 5-9in plus some smaller and missed a few more. Had an even mix of Brooks and Browns. Ended that trip after landing a hook in my arm after snapping it back at me from a tree. Second stream was a small very clear stream in the South-East part of the county, didn't have high hopes but was pleasantly suprised. Had one in hand to take home but the fish had other ideas. Would have had my limit if I had kept the remainder of the fish actually on the hook instead of losing them at my feet. All fish were Browns were in the 7-10in range with a couple smaller than that. Saw one easily 12+.

Your also legally able to leave the stream temporarilly to avoid an impassable obstacle.

All land under water is held in trust by the state. Land owners on either side can not legally prevent you from using that land, so long as your feet stay wet at all times you are fine.
