Does anyone know the stream conditions in Grant County?

Streams are in good shape. Water clear to slightly stained. 58 degrees. Not a lot of pressure

What was the skeeter/gnat situation like?

A buddy was hunting over there Sunday morning and said he was miserable with bugs while in his stand.

Of course I understand that it can be better on the stream, but the last time I was out, I got swarmed... on the stream.


Also... you get any fish?

I'd forgotten some hunting seasons opened on Saturday. Trying to scatter a flock of turkeys in this kind of heat, humidity and heavy vegetation didn't even cross my mind. I'm sure it's different-better-in the northern parts of the state, but sitting in stand all morning or afternoon south of Hwy. 10 or so doesn't seem like a pleasant way to pass the time. Maybe in a couple of weeks.

58 degree water, slight stain and not much pressure sounds prime.

If you haven't been out lately, the skeeters might just change you mind on doing anything outside.

Just had lunch outside on the Capital square and had to sit in full sun and even then had to swat a half dozen of em.


Buddy was deer hunting - bow season opened on Saturday.

Was on a ridge just above a well known Grant County stream.

My weekend plans up north may get washed out... yet again.

If that happens, I may end up over in Grant instead.

On Saturday the gnats were the worse I have ever seen

Lake fishing it is then if I'm stuck in the area.


Fortunately, I enjoy that just as much in its own way.

Well... almost as much.
