The trout season has been open since the start of January here. I've been out a few times - it's been cold, but there have been a few days warm enough to fish. While winter sometimes feels long, it's only a matter of time before spring is here again. The days are already noticeably longer and it's just going to get better.
Last weekend highs were in the 40s, so I tried a couple nearby streams. I got some video of a nice brown taking my streamer in a spring creek.
I also found some brookies in a higher gradient stream.
I didn't fish today due to high winds and low temperatures, but I think tomorrow I'll give it a shot.

This is the time of year when some of the trout head downstream to the salt, so I focused on the estuary. I ended up catching all of my fish under the road bridge. I've found that this is one of the most productive spots in the estuary. I think it provides the perfect combo of cover, current, and depth, so the fish stack up there.

The WI trout season closed on October 15. I unfortunately had to travel for work for the first 10 days of October, but I did get a couple trips in before the end of the season.
The season opens back up January 2, so fortunately I don't have to wait too long. In the meantime I can still fish lakes and ponds.

The leaves are just starting to change. I'm excited to see what this area looks like in a few weeks when the colors are at their peak
