Tonight was my first after-work trip this year. I picked up where I left off on Sunday on Willow Creek in Waushara County.
The temperature was up, almost to 60°F, and the fish were more willing to bite than they were this weekend. The wading was still a little tricky because of the depth and a bottom that was mucky in spots. But at least this time I didn’t go swimming in my waders!
I caught five brown trout, and the biggest was probably around eleven inches.
Five trout on a work night. That’s not bad for this time of year!
It felt like this might be the last trip until fall where I can skip the bug spray. We’ll see if maybe I can get one or two more trips in without resorting to the DEET.
