STREAM CONDITIONS AND BLOG
Gorgeous weekend we had here in the Driftless Area of SE Minnesota and we have entered an absolutely wonderful time to be on the water. The woods are coming alive with vibrant green foliage, wildflowers are blooming and the streams are running clear. Several Browns were taken on a variety of flies today .... everything from the mainstays of BM Pheasant tails & BM Hare's Ears to BH Wooley Buggers and early this afternoon I encountered a nice Caddis hatch with several fish taken on dries (Caddis). Be sure to stop in at the Driftless Fly Fishing Company Fly Shop for all your fly fishing needs, get the latest "intel" on what's working, share a cup of coffee with us and perhaps tell a tall tale or two!
