Monday was the first day of the trout fishing season in Wisconsin for me and a few friends. Gordon, Randy, Giard and I spent the afternoon on the water looking for the first fish of the season. The conditions were less than perfect and the weekend run-off  made the water high and off color. The air temps in the morning were just below freezing and the water had cleared on the edges. Expectations were low but the first fish was touched shortly after the first bug hit the water. Fish were located in the slow shallow edge water or in the deep water behind obstructions and in big pools. Scuds, Hares ears, Caddis larva and Prince nymphs all caught fish.
