Here's a interesting story about fly fishing, Trout economy and conservation efforts in the Driftless Area around Viroqua.

I was a little disappointed with this article, unless the author’s intent was to discourage people from giving trout fishing a try. He makes it sound next to impossible, and disdains anybody who doesn’t use flies, while admitting that he’s “really bad” at it and only tries about once a year. Also wondering why they selected a trout picture taken in Iceland when they could easily find impressive fish photos taken in the driftless area. Even though Isthmus is published in Madison, no mention of the great job Dane County has done acquiring easements and improving trout habitat?

I watched the one guy getting filmed in Avalanche a few decades ago. He never caught a trout while I hammered them using a ultra lite and power craw on a small jig head. Maybe Iceland is the only spot to catch em when you cant do good here
