Wisconsin summers are HOT... It was 95 heat index over the weekend. With that being said the fishing has been just OK. Water temps are decent but with hotter afternoons please make sure fish are at their tolerable levels if you decide to go fishing. I've been fishing shaded areas and fishing from late afternoon till dark and have been doing pretty well.
Trout throughout the state have keyed in on ants crickets and hoppers. Grasshoppers are out and about already and I will fish hoppers until the end of the season. It should be a great hopper year with all this heat and dry conditions. Hoppers are by far and away my favourite way to fish in late summer. Big fish... big fly... big hit.
Crazy as it sounds the salmon rodeo is right around the corner. Last year there were salmon in the Sheboygan in mid September, which is only a month a half away. Yeah I know, crazy...I'm hoping the salmon run is viable this year. the DNR has lowered the #'s on just about every species stocked, including steelhead and brown trout. However the brown trout fishing last year was epic all season long.
I'm hoping everyone is having a decent summer of fishing and enjoying the nice weather. I have several openings for the salmon run and beyond, but once the first salmon shows up I get busy. if you want to book a date send me an e mail or call me, at least we can get you in the books...if the fishing isn't good we can always reschedule.
Tight lines out there and feel free to call me anytime.
