Hopper season has arrived in the Driftless

Had an awesome couple hours on the water last Monday afternoon. The cloud cover was good. Air wasn’t too warm. And a breeze made for good upper conditions. It isn’t at its peak, but hopper season has well begun here in the Wisconsin Driftless.

We saw plenty of fish. Only a few rising.

Throwing a hopper/dropper combination we caught fish on top and bottom. They aren’t quiet into their fall feeding frenzy, but it is coming.

The trout are starting to put on their fall colors.

I tried to get a shot of Hot Dish setting the hook on a rise. I got the set, but not the rise 🙂

This was an ambitious trout with big eyes for a big meal.

We did manage a few 14-15 inch fish. Gorgeous.
