Re: 2020 Tenkara Wisconsin Campout

Agree 100%. I think the old saying was "Discretion is the better part of valor". Much better to reschedule than play Russian Roulette.

Re: 2020 Tenkara Wisconsin Campout

Also had a trip to Oregon in mid June canceled. We're supposed to go to Spain and Italy and that is looking very iffy. It's that possible second and third wave that have me worried.

Re: Going to try some Social Distancing today

Fished a stream near "none of your damn business Minnesota" and the water was very clear. Landed 7 and lost 4 in about 1 hour 20 minutes. Saw 4 other cars on the way out and talked for about 15 minutes with another older gent stream side. We did maintain a nice social distance. I was done just befor...

iWaders

They were touted as breathable and having some stretch. I am 5'8" and weigh 155# and ordered a size M which with winter clothing is slightly snug putti...

Re: 3/18 Fishing Report

I also went out north of I 90 Wed and fished a new stream(for me) with a friend. The water was slightly stained but not sure if that is the normal color or not. We fished from 10:30 until a little after 12:30. The fishing was very good. We didn't really keep a count but probably landed over 25. Most...

Re: March 13 report

The fish were in really good shape. Nothing for bugs, however I never try to match the hatch so I rarely even see bugs. Some beavers put in a dam which should be dynamite later on if I can find room to cast. This public access area is really overgrown and an incredible number of trees have gone down...

March 13 report

I went out today and fished a small stream from 12-1:30. The water was very slightly stained. I landed 2 Brookies and 8 Browns with the largest being 15 ½". The browns were all quite deep in pools that had fast water at the upper end. Very comfortable out. I was North of I 90. I forgot to take the t...

Went out today with a friend and fished from 10:30 until about 1:45 PM North of I90. The water was gin clear and 44/45 degrees. We landed 12 with 9 of them 13"+. Everything was near the bottom in deeper but moving water. They were all in excellent shape. We were both using nymphs, size 16. We did se...

Eagles

The eagles are getting ready to head North. I just counted over 100 from my deck overlooking Lake Pepin.
