My own photo got me fired up. I took this
photo and did not fish it. I watched as an
experienced caster did average in here.

This was new permission. It was the first time I was ever
on this stretch. How would you fish this run and what with
in mid september in Wisconsin?

I would make an upstream cast up against the opposite bank. It looks like that bank can be undercut which makes for a great holding spot for a fish.

The fly that I would use is a streamer. Once I feel that the fly is just about at the depth, I would start stripping fast. The goal is to make it look like a fleeing baitfish. Remember that fleeing baitfish will not flee against the current. This is a good way to hook into large fish.

It would be wise to use a short sink tip or a sinking leader. You can figure out the sink rate since you know the water, but I'd recommend something faster than a rate of 3 inches per second. Don't use a tip line or sinking leader larger than 10 feet. Add about three to four feet of tippet material to your butt section or to the sinking leader.
