I rushed to put this footage together last evening so that you can get an idea of the level I experienced this hatch at yesterday. If you were at all on the fence I would think this should put you over. Hatch details are posted on the site, enjoy the video.

Super cool, thanks for sharing! The place is crawling with caddis! I hope they're still around in a week.

They were just beginning to pop on a pierce county stream I fished on Wednesday afternoon...fish were rising, but nothing like the peak I've seen on this river in past years...yet.
if I had to guess, the 70+ temps on sunday may be the day.

Great video!

I just finished up a four day trip, covering Monroe, Vernon, Crawford, Richland and Iowa county streams in SW Wisconsin (a full report soon). Black Caddis were definitely hatching on all streams, but it was the Blue Wing Olives that the Trout seemed most interested in. A small parachute Adams pattern was just deadly drawing quick strikes when it hit the water.

The mornings were too cold and the hatch didn't really kick in till mid-day through Saturday. I expect that with the forecast warmer low temperatures for the coming week, the hatch and the bite will expand.
