I have been watching this site for ten plus years.. I recently moved from Chicago suburbs to Williams Bay Wi. First time I have gotten out in a while and normally try to avoid hot clear sky days but this morning paid off big time. I was at the very first Traprfest in Westby so I know a few of you. Mark,Bill etc. I have fished with Len Harris quite a few times and a friend of his who lives on Tainter creek quite a few times.Finally getting around to post. This morning a friend and I had a great morning. It was hot with clear skies and bugs but we managed about 60 fish. Got the trifecta of brown, brook and rainbow. Rainbow was 24 1/2 inches two brook rest browns.. Will post picture of rainbow later. Going out again this afternoon. Now retired and will be getting out on a regular basis. We are fishing Richland Cty and Crawford cty streams with spinners.

Welcome to the board!

Be sure to use a thermometer when fishing on hot days. Any water temp over 70 can be fatal to Trout due to the stress of being caught (providing you don't plan on keeping them).

All trout released. Rainbow was stressed but after a while swam away.

Welcome to the board!

My parents are some of those FIBS that used to have a house in Williams Bay! They have since moved across the great Lake Geneva and now have a place near Fontana.

If you ever need a fishing buddy, talk to Gurth, he can hook you up with some stellar spots as long as you admit you're a Packer fan (I lied to get the scoop on the goodness).

But he did hook me up with my first Brook Trout! Thanks Gurth!!!
