SO I went out to the viroqua area about 2 weekends ago and really struggled to get the fish to cooperate. I only have been out there a few other times but it seemed that the streams were suuuupppper low and the water warm. I am trying to plan another trip for sept 11 weekend and was wondering how those streams are doing, or should we head somewhere else.

Thanks for the help guys.

Just there this past weekend. Streams were up a bit with the recent rainfall. Timber Coulee and Bad Axe systems were fishing well. Kickapoo river was a bit muddy. I'd say go for it!

Keep your eye on rainfall totals in the week before your visit.

If there's no precip between now and then, the streams will be in similar condition (low and warm) for the most part.

And the daytime/overnight temps. Hopefully it will cool down after this weekend, or you could run into the same thing you did the last time.

So the weather is not in favor for those streams. Looking like its going to be 90s and no rain almost all week.... What do you guys know about the eau claire area stream conditions. Three that I am thinking of are Elk Creek, Kinni, Rush? No matter what I am looking at about a 3 hr drive, so I want to get somewhere that is going to be worth fishing.

Rush was high and stained on weds. A couple of places I took the temp and it was a little over 60 degrees.
I think all fishermen prefer to be thought of as crazy.
