Trico Time and a day off!

Well I had a cancellation yesterday. This gave me a chance for me to do some fishing. I headed east to the Rush River to enjoy a morning of Trico fishing. I sometimes forget in the heat of the smallmouth season what a great resource we have in our Western Wisconsin Spring Creeks. I had the whole river to myself and the bugs were coming of in droves. It was truly a beautiful morning to be alive in God’s creation. I worked pod after pod of rising fish. Once I got into trout mode things began to click. It takes me a good half hour to get used to casting those delicate Trico patterns to smaller fish than I’m used to. To go from a size 2 streamer to a size 22 Trico spinner pattern is quit the culture shook for me this time of year. If you have a chance to get over and enjoy some early mornings on these great rivers i would recommend it. Don’t forget the bass. They are really going strong and it is the heart of the season now!! They are really eating and some big fish are being taken.
Keep casting and God Bless,

    I think you have finally seen what I have been preaching for so many years. The St. Croix has been fishing very well the last month or so. Good luck and welcome to the smallmouth addiction.
