    Default re: Fishing Driftless in April

    Any month except November and December are good to fish the Driftless, and the only reason those two are not is because it's not fishing season! There are more folks fishing then, but there are hundreds of streams, all of which have fish, so don't worry about that. Take a look at the hatch charts, but "the usual suspects" work year round.

    The beautiful thing about the Driftless, is that there are so many streams, you can always find a place to fish. Definitely make a point to get out there!

    Thanks,

    What weekend are you considering?

    Thanks to everyone for all the information and suggestions. We are coming Wednesday April 18 and leaving on the 22nd. We already have lodging taken care of in Viroqua and are doing half a day with Rich Osthoff. Can't wait! We're both pretty excited to fish the Driftless for the first time. We have a 3 day fishing window so hoping we can get into a few fish.

    I appreciate the information and update. At this point we are still going forward with our driftless trip since we can't change the dates due to various obligations. At the worst we'll have a little adventure and drink some Wisconsin beer.

    Lenh with scare tactics. There will be fishable water. Evenings will lead to muddy waters but overnights will be below freezing which will slow the runoff down at night. Best bets will be small streams under 4mi in length that flow to the south. Also a great time to throw meaty flies in the stain. Good luck.

    before the snow....streams were really clear and low...
    the fishing was really good...



    Good luck

    Rich is the best guide in the area..."my" opinion.

    will be looking for photos.
