I grew up in SW WI camping and fishing the Little Green and Big Blue. That was almost 50 years ago and I now live in St. Louis. Now that we're empty nesters I try to get back to the area several times each year spin casting the smaller streams and plan to get back into fly fishing as I approach retirement. I enjoy walking the streams, seeing the wildlife and of course catching some trout. I kicked up fawns on 2 consecutive days a few weeks ago as I was fishing.
While out on those streams, everything else seems to fade away and I know that I'm going to enjoy my retirement here in a few years.

Thanks for all of the great posts and advice.

Hi, I'm josh. I spent years chasing trout in southwest and west central Wisconsin as well as NE Iowa. I've been out of the loop for about 8 years but looking to return to the streams again. Looking forward to seeing how much these streams have changed.

Attention New Members!!



I have noticed quite a few new sign ups lately but no new postings in this thread. If you don't post something in this thread shortly after signing up I have no way of knowing if you are someone looking to bask in the glory of Driftless Trout Anglerhood or just another spam account that has been created.

By posting in this thread it gives the more established DTAer's a chance to haze you in to the fold. If it doesn't happen here it will have to happen in real time at the next Trap Fest. I guarantee after we are through you will wish you had just been taped to a tree and left there over night. I can't give away all the secrets but just so you know Hookjaw didn't get his name from catching Brown Trout with large kypes. ThumpUp

Holy crap. I've been active on here for a year and a half and just realized I never introduced myself. I've been fly fishing for 6 years. Another DTA'er turned me onto this site and it's been a fantastic joyride ever since. Thank you to all DTA'ers for you input, advice and general friendly banter!

Welcome draik. Trying to think of something witty to follow that up with, but not much comes to mind. I guess I'll just go with "It's all ball bearings nowadays."

Newer member, South of Eau Claire. I used to fish the local streams quite a bit but put it on the shelf when my son was younger and fishing in the boat was easier. He's 14 now and his interest in stream fishing has increased each year. Each of the past three years we've spent days in NE Iowa and our ventures now also include heading West on Hwy 10 besides hitting the more local streams. Pretty much feel like I'm in the middle of it all here.

Sure I can fly fish ugly, and yes catch fish but prefer the spinning rod. I equate it to riding a bike but choosing to drive my truck instead, just like being on the water wondering what is in that next hole.

Best place I've ever trout fished, Black Hills of SD.
