Len,
I will sometimes take a fold out hunting chair and put it in the water and fish from there. Don't know if this would work for you and not sure how solid or how deep the mud is in the places you fish, but it might make for a less pain day??

The above link doesn't appear to work. Is this the one:

Seems it needed the "l" at the end of "html." Some days I really wish I lived closer to some nice trout streams.

Prior to this last rain event Curt was really slaying some monsters with Panther Martins.

Hit the water with Andy Nezworski at 9am. Was cloudy when we started and then got sunny in a hurry. We fished head waters due to recent rain. By 10:30 there were scads of hatches coming off. Blue Wing Olives/Gnats/Caddis were all over the place and little trout were working the surface. Andy tried dries with no luck.

Went out for 2 hours this morning. It looked like rain in the forecast and I looked at my favorite water and it was a little dirty. Thought I better get out there before it was too dirty to fish.

Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream.

Wacky Conditions

I thought with the impending eclipse it might turn on the trout.

I wandered to Crawford County to an easy walking stretch.



Would have done better if the new land owner's dog Princess would not have swam in every hole before I fished it.

Trip Report "Wisconsin Special"


I have been riding the pines for a while. The recliner seems to be growing to my behind. Yes my back is hurting but I decided to quit whining and get out there for an hour tonight.

Had three decent ones shake off before I could land them. I landed seven browns.

The below female brown was my last to hand. I smiled as I knelt to net her. I leaned forward and put a hand down. I could not have done it better if I had planned it. I thought about taking a photo of my hand placement.
