Conditions- sunny warm and windy
Target- driftless stream trout
In total, I fished three different creeks and scoped out two others on drive by's. Of the three streams fished, only two yielded fish catches. Of the two places I caught fish, one was far above the rest in finding an active population of fish. The wind was blowing hard at a sustained twenty miles per hour with gusts over the thirty mark. This generally wouldn't be considered the ideal conditions for fly fishing but for some reason I had a hard time switching over to my spinning gear.
|many spots like this looked promising but were just too windy to fish|

This weekend I think me and Damien will be pounding some streams in Dane County so be sure to check back early next week for a report!
