Made a rare visit to the Rush on Sunday. The water was high, but flowing pretty clear. I couldn’t believe how few anglers were out for such a nice day. Fishing was decent, got into a nice hatch of mayflies in one section, but most fish I caught nymphing, and even got a few on streamers. Best fish of the day came on the first cast with a new “Stay Hungry” streamer pattern I call “Creek Chub”. Not a great picture of the fish o the fly, but there will be more to come.
Sunday brought the end of the catch and release season, the coldest one I can remember.
The statewide Wisconsin Opener is next Saturday- you can be sure I’ll be out there, will you?
