    Went out from 11am until 3:30pm today.

    I fiddled with my camera and put the date stamp on it because I was going to do a slideshow of EVERY trout I caught today. .....30 seconds in to my outing I caught a small fish.

    I just couldn't pull the trigger on taking photos of every fish I caught. I put the camera in my vest and didn't take a fish photo all day. I did take a couple scenery photos.

    3:30 came and I went up over the hill to walk back to my car. I kept a count still.

    44 browns and 1 brookies to hand. Biggest brown was 17 range.

    The scenery was amazing on the first stream I stopped at but the fishing was slow. I checked water temps and they were 50 degrees. Landed 2 in an hour and moved on. Those two were behind structures.

    I changed waterway and fished for another 1.5 hours. I landed 14 there. All trout were either tucked under edge of non-sunny side banks or within 30 yards downstream of thermals.

    15 browns and one brookie. One brown approximately 14 inches.
     
  6. Stupid question here....

    In what part of the state is the Driftless Area located? It's beautiful country, and the fishing looks awesome.
