I'm coming up to the Viroqua area this weekend as a first-timer to the Driftless. I've got Ross Mueller's guidebook, but I'm wondering what advice the forum can give me on where to fish. I'll be returning next month with my fishing buddy, so I just want to recon the area and make map notes, learn more about the Kickapoo and feeder streams, that sort of things.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Nearly every stream in the Viroqua area will have at least some Trout in it. The popular ones will have the most cars parked at the obvious access points. Weekends are always very busy on the Timber Coulee system. Try some of the less popular and lower designated streams and you should find a place to fish. Many of the tribs off the Kickapoo are excellent, if you don't mind some bush-whacking and challenging wading.

A stop at the Driftless Angler Fly Shop in Viroqua is always a good idea. Mat and Geri are good about giving out stream advice and what patterns are working. Just be nice and buy something in exchange for the free advice.

Good luck.

I couldn't agree more. Stop at the DA and talk to Mat and Geri. They will give you good advice on where to fish and what to sling.
