Trip Report Vernon County

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.


Spooked a lot of fish in the gin clear water.

Our luck changed just before we stopped.


Andy out fished me.  My knees were angry so I stopped.  I deposited Andy downstream and am expecting a report later tonight.

We Are Some Odd Ducks


It can be snowing and there can be a wind from the North screaming in our face.


But we endure.  We chase a quarry that has a brain the size of a pea.  Most time we don't even keep them.

Odd is a mild description of we the trout anglers.

We wear our mantle with pride and conviction.

We are a driven bunch.

The thrill of what could be on the next cast is our affliction.

Quack.....Quack

Prior to this last rain event Curt and Zach were really slaying some monsters with Panther Martins.
