How to Fly Fish with a Spinning Rod Part 1 PART I: HOW TO FLY FISH WITH A SPINNING ROD This is an excerpt from my DVD Trout Streams of SW Wisconsin and also serves as an introduction to how to fly fish with a spinning rod. I have made numerous and significant improvements to the technique and these will be revealed in a DVD to be released later in 2018. I will release a trailer for it when it is out, so if you subscribe to my YouTube channel you will be alerted at that time.
White water rafting in Wisconsins Wolf River WATCH WHITE WATER RAFTING THE WOLF RIVER Fishing was a bit slow so we rented a raft from Forest River Rafting and floated 12 miles from Hwy 64 to County Hwy M. These are class 3 rapids. At 600 cfs it was a fun float.
19 inch Brule River brown trout, WI-MI WATCH 19" BRULE RIVER BROWN TROUT WI/MI I just started filming my next DVD, Trout Streams of Michigan Upper Peninsula. Things have been going well as I started off by catching this good sized brown trout from the Brule River along the Wisconsin Michigan border.
SW Wisconsin Trout Streams DVD Trailer 1 WATCH BROOK TROUT STREAMS OF CRAWFORD COUNTY The is a compilation from the SW WI DVD featuring brook trout streams of Crawford County. Prior to 2000 most of these streams had no trout at all but following the DNR's stocking of wild strain fish now support a thriving brook trout fishery. Most brookies here average 8"-12" and with the right presentation are not that difficult to catch. Six different streams are shown.
SW Wisconsin Trout Streams DVD Trailer 1 WATCH DVD TRAILER 1 The first trailer for the DVD Trout Streams of SW Wisconsin, North. This is just 1 of 57 streams revealed in the 2 disk video. Here we are fishing for brown trout in late September using woolly buggers and nymphs. A #12 beadhead bloody mary was particularly effective.
Nice brook trout, DVD Trailer 2 WATCH DVD TRAILER 2 The second trailer for the DVD Trout Streams of SW Wisconsin, North. This trailer features a very productive brook trout stream seldom fished by others. Spinners, woolly buggers, soft hackles and wet flies all hooked their share of fish, many of which where able to shake free before being landed. Again, this is just 1 of 57 streams revealed in the video. Total run length is 3 hours 32 minutes.
15 inch rainbow trout from SW Wisconsin WATCH DVD TRAILER 3 Another trailer from the DVD Trout Streams of SW Wisconsin, North. This is a really great little spring creek. In one day of fishing it produced brook trout up to 11", rainbows up to 15" and brown trout up to 16". Surprisingly very few people fish it, although anyone who wants to (and knows where it is!) can.
Brown Trout TRY BRIDGES FOR SUMMER TROUT Another extra from the DVD, Trout Stream of SW WI. Filmed on July 5, this shows the tendency of brown trout in small creeks to seek the shade provided by bridges during hot sunny summers. As you can see, some of these trout get pretty big.
Jay Thurston WATCH UNDERHAND FLIP CAST Jay Thurston, a great trout fisherman and author of "Spring Creek Treasures", explains his ingenious underhand flip cast. This allows a spin fisherman to more easily cast in small streams with intruding tree branches. This is an excerpt from the DVD "Trout Streams of Southwest Wisconsin, North".
NW Wisconsin smallmouth bass stream WATCH NW WIS SMBASS STREAM Fishing a smallmouth bass stream in NW Wisconsin in early July. We are using 1/8th oz weedless jigs with 3 inch power bait. We caught a lot more fish but it would be a long video if I showed them all.
Milwaukee River with deer WATCH MILWAUKEE RIVER SMALLMOUTH BASS Despite its proximity to a major metropolitan center, the Milwaukee River is full of smallmouth bass and a haven for wildlife. Due to the recent hot weather the smaller bass were hitting. Typically they average a couple inches larger. Other sections of the river offer good fishing for northern pike and channel catfish.
Copper Creek, near Madison, WI COPPER CREEK Near Madison, WI This Copper Creek is in LaFayette County, about an hour South of Madison, Wisconsin. It is a category 3, class 2 brown trout stream. The middle section offers the best fishing for wild brown trout.
Lovetts Creek, near Madison, WI LOVETTS CREEK Near Madison, WI Found in south central Wisconsin, Lovett Creek is a category 5 class 2 brown trout stream. With the exception of an occasional deep hole, the section below Cty Rd M tends to suffer from excessive sedimentation. Above M there has been habitat improvement and a public fishing easement. This area is spring fed.
Steiner Branch, near Madison, WI STEINER BRANCH Near Madison, WI Steiner Branch is the only brook trout stream in Lafayette County, of south central Wisconsin. You will want to fish it upstream of CTH F where rehabilitation work and a steeper gradient has created some good habitat for the trout. The stream runs along Yellowstone SP (not NP!) and has good public access. I missed several decent brook trout while fishing this cold April day.
Trout Brook, near Madison, WI TROUT BROOK Near Madison, WI Trout Brook is a small little trout stream near the Wisconsin/Illinois border. It does not suffer from the sedimentation problems that other trout streams in this area do and has good spring flow. I did not catch any trout but did see a few browns around 10". You can access this stream from Dunbarton Rd.
Wolf Creek, near Madison, WI WOLF CREEK Near Madison, WI Wolf Creek is a category 5 class 2 brown trout stream about 1 hour south of Madison, WI. The first section shown is upstream of the town of Gratiot and has some public fishing easements. The 2nd section is near Cub Hollow Rd. There is limestone bedrock, springs and good looking pools but sedimentation can be an issue.
Carp from Beaver Dam River, Wisconsin BEAVER DAM RIVER, SE Wisconsin An old video from May 2009, this shows the a typical day of fishing the Beaver Dam River. It is a tributary of the Crawfish River, which flows into the Rock River and then Lake Koshkonong. Located in SE Wisconsin it is about an hours drive from either Milwaukee or Madison but doesn't seem to get much fishing pressure. Lots of rough fish are here: carp, channel catfish, sheepshead and bullhead. White bass are common during spring.
Fish from Crawfish River, Wisconsin CRAWFISH RIVER, SE Wisconsin An old video from August 2009, the Crawfish River is a tributary of the Rock River in southeast Wisconsin, in between Milwaukee and Madison. There are a lot of rough fish in this stream: carp, catfish (mostly channel but some flatheads), bullhead, dog fish, and sheepshead. During spring white bass are common plus there are a few walleye and northern pike.
Cave of the Mounds WATCH CAVE TOUR Cave of the Mounds near Madison, Wisconsin, is one of the most scenic caves in the USA. It has been designated as a National Natural Landmark. Watch the video and see for yourself. The background music features one of my coolest tunes, Reverberations, from the Beauty Creek album.
Kickapoo Indian Caverns WATCH KICKAPOO INDIAN CAVERN Kickapoo Indian Caverns is the largest cave in Wisconsin. Located in SW Wisconsin, east of Prarie Du Chien, this cave is not visited nearly as much as Cave of the Mounds but is every bit as impressive. Tours are given once a day. The cavern height is an astounding 65 feet.
