Streams in Portage County are back in their banks. Water temps are consistent 52 degrees and rising with increased temps last weekend and coming days. Trout are rising to Caddis flies in the evening. Water is still dark abut a foot and half of visibility.

Muskies are still “chopping” at the bit currently in the Wisconsin River. Heavier than normal rainfall in May and rising water has not slowed down the fishing. Murky water would encourage anglers to revert back to brighter flies to attract.
