Big Browns are in but Cold Weather Coming, Fall 2017

Having lived for over 40 years in Wisconsin, I am still interested in its fish and my long time fly fishing companions, even though Nancy and I now live in Vancouver, WA. My faithful friend, John Beth, keeps me apprised of goings-on in the Badger State fishery. His latest report is both good and bad. Good because the really big browns are ascending the tributaries and taking flies very well. Bad because the weather, which has been unseasonably warm, is going to turn to its usual late fall nasty. As in freezing temps and then some. So, the rivers are going to ice, and that of course means no fishing. So, go, go, go. Get ‘em while they’re hot, because it is not going to be hot for long.
