The WI trout season has been closed for some time now but that doesn't mean everyone should just stop fishing. We have salmon/steelhead runs in the Lake Michigan tribs., Iowa trout season is open year round, and a few of the warmwater fisheries are giving up some great fish right now.
I have done some great trips to Iowa already and plenty of great fish to the the net. Late season floats down the WI River have been hit or miss, low water on the tribs. has the runs kinda screwy right now, and the most consistent fishing as of late has been Musky fishing. I have been out 4 times in the past two weeks and the results have been GREAT!
We have boated 4 Musky the two biggest over 40". We have had two dare I say Giant follows and we have hooked up but lost three other magnificent fish. The weather has been all over the map from cold drizzly days to nice warm calm sunny days and the fish are still cooperative. If you ever thought about giving thhis type of fishing a try now is the time.
|Nice but beat up Musky! Scary to think something bigger than this fish was chomping at it.|
|Close up of why you don't lip Musky.|
|Matt's first Musky ever and it's on a fly rod! 41" 14lb|
|I love the color of these fish.|
|Safe release to get bigger!|
