District-Wide Trout Stream Fishing Report
|Decorah received about 4 inches of snow Wednesday. Take care when parking as lots won't be plowed. Folks will have to park on the side of the road to get to their favorite stream. Some light black stonefly hatches have been taking place on warmer sunny afternoons. Anglers have also been taking trout on light spruce flies, small #20 caddis fly nymphs, and streamers. Spin fishers using worms fished through riffles are taking nice catches.|
|Brook Trout - Good: The scientific name for brook trout is "Salvenlinus fontinalis." "Salvenlinus" is an old name for char or type of trout and "fontinalis" means living in springs or fountains.|
|Brown Trout - Good: Angling strategies should change during the winter months. Angling should take place in the riffles, especially concentrate your lure/fly along the deeper channels running along a cut bank. |
|Rainbow Trout - Good: Traditionally now is a good time to find rainbow heading upstream to spawn. If you do land a spawning fish, please practice CPR (Catch, Photograph, Release).|
