I've went out fishing three times this past week on the Menomonee and haven't caught a single fish. I did, however, catch this adorable turtle by hand.
Yesterday, I tied some flies from some clearance bin craft store yarn hoping they'll be good for rough fish. I call the flies "hooker eyelashes," it's funny on a couple different levels
The fishing was no different yesterday than it has been. I probably covered a mile of stream and only saw three fish. I think the rain and cold has slowed the sucker run, but I don't really know what temperature suckers spawn at. I took the opportunity to explore the restoration progress since the fishing was slow. The improvements are looking nice!
