Check them for clipped adipose fins. They're doing a little experiment to see how many are wild vs. how many are "wild-stocked".

Talking with the local fisheries biologist a while back, he fished a section of it and figured he caught (hook and line) 75% brookies. When they electrofished it, there were 75% browns.

I was wading through one pool and I thought I saw a wall hanger brown swim past me. Upon closer look, it was a beaver.


Very cool!


Good point. I should have checked the fins. All of them were about the exact same size too, 8-9 inches. They could be stockers. Aggressive little fish though. All of the takes were quite acrobatic.

Fished streams in Crawford, Richland and Grant counties yesterday and conditions were normal for late summer. No high water or silting to be found.

Drove by the Sug on my way and it is well within its banks although high so I'd guess that the tribe of that watershed are probably back to fishable/normal.

Good to know, thanks for the report. I'm going to try to make it out mid-week sometime if I can shake free for a half a day.

Watched the line overnight track from LaCrosse straight across the state. Just stayed on that line and poured. 4-7 inches I read.

Another round coming later today into tomorrow.


We cancelled a planned trip to Hayward this week coz sis brought a summer cold up from Florida last weekend and we all got it to varying degrees.

Turned out saving us a bunch of money as they're getting heavy rain daily up there too.

Thanks sis!
