Len: That doesn't look very promising! Are you getting lots of rain that is causing the water to be so high?

Len: That's not a good combination for clear streams.
I made the move (retirement) up to Pinedale, WY last week. The yard has a ton of snow and the next couple of days are forecast for more. I was kind of interested in where we were at for seasonal snow pack, looked it up and for the upper green we are still only at 95%.

Heck, those streams will be, at worst, stained come Saturday. The water was low to begin with, so it should only help your chances of getting a few. I'll be out fishing Minnesota's streams tomorrow. I've got some nice little headwaters that are just calling my name right now. Unfortunately, I'm stuck in the office for now.

The streams will be fishable come saturday. The majority of the wildlife in Wisconsin has had a pretty easy winter.
