Fished a state park south of 90 today, and I could not have wished for a better day. There was a consistent Baetis hatch which came off from 1 to 3 PM. Fish were rising in all of the suspect places, particularly in the head of riffled water. There did not seem to be many risers in the long slow pools, which I took to mean that few of the emergers were making it past the riffles. The biggest adjustment I had to make today was the low light conditions caused by the cloudy skies and the low sun angle. As I said fish were aggressive and came readily to small drys. Fish were all healthy and fat, caught several in the 14-16 inch range. Nice to be able to fish on a year round basis, thanks to the DNR, and I look forward to several more trips.

Thanks Rich. I've also had some good fishing since the 15th.

Baetis hatches have been pretty reliable 1-3 pm. Lots of redd's out there many with fish on them. Fun to watch, but also need to keep on eye on where you're wading.

I got this 18"-19" brown yesterday on a nymph after the baetis hatch had dwindled.Image

Nice fish!!
