Dog Days Are Early

I typically make a post like this in late July but the weather is ahead about a month.

If you are looking for nice fish heed this advice.

Small feeders into main branches.

Enough said.

Wednesday Report

All trout streams in the area are in good condition.  The Gnats and tall weeds are a different story.  Skitoes are coming out too. 

Did my customary Wednesday visit to my mother in Gays Mills.  The Kickapoo River is nearly to normal levels but continues to be extremely dirty.

No fish to report.

For You Salad Haters

Greek Salad

About 35 years ago I had a salad in Greece.  I raved about it for decades to my wife.

I finally made it tonight.


One head iceberg lettuce
4 small cucumbers diced
14 stemmed and seeded pepperoncini
16 capers
half white onion finely diced
heaping tablespoon chopped garlic
4 ounces chopped marinated artichoke hearts
6 ounces corn
8 ounces diced ham
6 ounces feta cheese
4 ounces ranch dressing
4 ounces Cesar dressing
2 teaspoons dill
toss all together and put fresh grated black pepper to taste.
