STREAM CONDITIONS AND BLOG
Streams are in great shape here in the Minnesota Driftless and with temps consistently making it into the 40's as of late and 50's forecasted for this week into the weekend, now is the time to plan those outings to SE Minnesota. Saturday we saw a phenomenal Baetis (BWO) hatch and great success was had on Parachute BWO patterns and when the takes were sub-surface orange soft hackles were key. Also, work those deeper, slower pools with black Woolly Bugger and /or Leech patterns as these too have been very effective. Stop in at the shop and check out the great sales happening this weekend!
