Local trout streams continue to be low and clear across the Driftless region, but those anglers who were willing to deal with rain and cold were greatly rewarded! A good number of browns, rainbows and brook trout are being caught.

In the Southern Driftless region (Root and Whitewater River systems) bwo’s and caddis have been hatching like crazy! The best hatch has been during the mid morning, but you can find risers throughout the day.

In the northern Driftless region (Kinnickinnic and Rush Rivers) midges and bwo’s have been loving the cold, cloudy, and rainy conditions. One successful tactic has been to swing soft hackle flies through transition zones between shallow/fast to deep/slow water.

Elk hair caddis and Parachute BWO’s have been effective dry flies when the fish are feeding on the surface. Warm weather later this week should get caddis started hatching in the northern Driftless so that’s something to keep an eye out for.
