Late Summer Tenkara on a Sunny Drifltess Day
Conventional wisdom says that going trout fishing on a sunny, late summer day in Wisconsin is a fool's errand, but with some careful use of terrain and a bit of water reading savvy, a Tenkara angler can still have a great day on the creek. I rigged up the Badger Classic with 12 ft of floating Badger line, 6 ft of tippet, and one of the larger "Pass Lake" flies I'd been itching to fish.
Shiners and creek chubs were hungry and I caught several of them in places where you'd typically find actively feeding trout, but other than that the first few runs were lifeless. Time to shift tactics.
