    Starting this Spring there was a gathering of trout anglers from the four state in the driftless region. The first event was held at Westby Rod and Gun Camp Grounds on CTH P in rural Westby, Wisconsin. The first event attracted anglers from far and wide. A second Fall event was planned for last weekend at the same venue.

    The Fall event was a little more tame than the Spring event. It was attended by about the same amount of trout anglers. All trout anglers were represented. There were dry fly anglers and worm anglers at the same table.
    The Spring event had a large trout caught by Twin Cities angler Kirk Shatner and a HUGE walleye caught by Mark Dahlquist also of the Twin Cities.
    The Fall event was just as fishy. The hands down master angler was a Twin Cities Angler that landed big trout of the weekend. Eddie Rivard caught a 26.5 inch female brown and released it and he followed up his massive trout with a sweet catfish later that day.
    The trout was caught in a secret stream in Crawford County on a lure that will remain a secret also. The cat was caught on cut bait at the dam in Gays Mills.
