Cindy was out of town on Wednesday, so I decided to sneak in an extra fishing trip after work. I wanted to go somewhere reasonably close so I could get home in time to walk the dog. Radley Creek south of Waupaca fit the bill.
The water level was up just a little, and the stream was a little murkier than usual. But there were trout present, and at least the small ones were biting despite a bright sky.
At one point I climbed out to get around some deadfalls, and casting from shore I had two big ones (~16") hooked breifly. Alas, I could not hold on to them long enough to actually land them.
I finished up before 8:00 PM and totaled seven brown trout. That’s probably better than average for me for this particular section.
