    Driftless fishing was tough this weekend

    Maybe I was the only one not clued in, because there was nobody out and around.

    We visited UW with my daughter this weekend. She and my wife stayed in Madison while I headed off to Readstown/Viroqua.

    Saturday evening, I got 5 rises, managed to stick one. Early Sunday, I had three on my first five casts, but then it slowed considerably.

    More overgrown than I've ever seen it at this time of year (how'd this happen in a drought?). More beavers than I've ever seen as well.

    The fishing was tough cause its effin HOT and if you can get a overcast morning with a temp below 65 Tricos are it pretty much then the fishing gets more like work.

    You'd think.

    But there were plenty of trout, out and about.

    How hungry are you when it gets really hot? What was the water temp?

    There's a pork chop in every beer. When it gets hot out, I get hungry. Make sure you pack enough pork chops next week.

    It was freaking cold whenever I waded over my hip boots.

    Smart men don't particularly like getting poison ivy on their legs on their way to and from wading.
