OK, real quick, all the SE WI Tribs are blown out after a few days of rain. What to do? Well, I had to head to Creekside Outfitters to pick up a rod for an upcomming trip. Bart was itchin' to fish, as was I. Could we do any better than nightfishin' after work? Nope!

So suffice it to say CS, Dave and I all headed out on the tribs but gave up after only 1.5 hours of fishin. The river was HIGH and MUDDY. There was almost no chance a fish was going to find our offerings in these conditions. Why take pictures of NOTHING at night? Oh week should be better as flows return to normal.
