The Morning Report.

40 degrees and falling leaves are irresistible to a trout fisherman.

So I yielded.

The second cast connected with what I thought was a smallmouth bass.  He jumped a few times and I thought I had caught dinner for Mary.

But it turned out to be a trout that had never missed a meal.

The very next cast was a larger trout than trout number one.  

A Canada goose sat on the shore providing much needed supervision.  Actually, it was probably wounded and could not fly away.  Whatever the case,  the goose was resting and watching as I caught trout number 3.

I had just made the cast and the fish was on.  It was a keeper, but it was not in my hands just yet.  As I reeled it in, the luckiest trout in Wisconsin jumped one more time, snapping my line and swimming away.

On the way home, an apple fritter sized snapping turtle needed assistance crossing the road.  I pulled over, picked it up and listened to it hiss at me until it was safely on the other side of the road.

The temps are dropping as fast as the leaves.  Get away from civilization and interact with nature.

It will do you good.

Beautiful brook trout, probably would have mounted it on the colorations alone. Spawning male colors I believe. Good job!

15 inches is the longest brook trout I have ever caught.  
26 inches is my record for a brown trout.

Have fun fishing :)

Great fish Hockeyguy! I've heard of brookies around here being caught up to 19", so that's probably not your fish of a lifetime. It is a big one though. Awesome colors on that thing, too. They tend to look outstanding this time of year.

Up around Goodman for the annual camping weekend. The spot I found close to camp last year was now posted No Trespassing, so that was a major blow to my plans. I'd bought waders and everything this year lol. Hit a different stretch of same creek on Friday afternoon and caught this dandy, though! Talk about a surprise!  I'm new to trout fishing, but I can't imagine they get this big too terribly often, at least not on small creeks. Really wish I had an accurate measurement of it, but I would estimate it's right around 14". Saw pics from Labor Day weekend of a 14 1/2" a guy caught on another section of same creek (going on his wall) and this looked pretty similar. I was at the start of a camping weekend and not looking for a taxidermy bill, so back in the creek it went. 

Now the lingering question...did I release a potential fish of a lifetime lol?

And how can a single blade of grass ruin what would be a quality pic?

Went fishing on a stream in Waukesha county for brook trout, and has the best 4 hours of fishing I've ever had. Caught over 50 brookies (Counted and took pics of every fish), from 6 to 13.5 inches. Don't overlook those little, muddy, class 2 streams! Only 3 streams left to go in the county!

Has the DNR stocked Bluff Creek in Walworth county with some hatchery brood stock? Caught some much bigger fish this year than ever before.

The Morning Report

Our trout stream, which has had this chocolate milk look to it all summer has cleared up.  The mosquitoes are gone, at least for now.

It is time for trout fishing to resume.

The creek bottoms are lush with the growth of summer.  The water was cold and fast flowing.

The trout were on the small size.  The trout were rather picky.  All except for one.

She was in the back end of a pool.  She rose out of the bottom of the pool to investigate my lure.  That square tail was a keeper.

All I had to do was catch it.

I switched lures to no avail.  So I tried a different color and the rejection was the same.

I tied in a jig and twister tail rig, which I usually reserve for walleyes.  The trout smashed the lure and it will become lunch.

It is a good day when the trout are biting and not the bugs.

I was really excited to fish the Namekagon one morning since we were staying nearby. After I tried a few spots that turned to disappointment. Great scenery, poor fishing!

Decided to leave the walleyes alone and chase some trout around.  Beautiful night.  Not much for fishing but the few caught were solid.  Didn’t have enough time to get as far back as I needed.  The fishing pressure in southern wi has been very high this year due to Covid.  Got to walk much farther to get away from the human sign.  I can only imagine what some of the public land is going to look like this year without Badger football.
