Winter Fly Fishing for Driftless Trout

Show Notes

While many Wisconsin anglers are busy pulling fish through the ice, a select few are braving sketchy stream-side hikes and frozen rod guides in pursuit of Winter trout on the fly. For many, fly fishing conjures up images of big dry flies, foam terrestrials, and warm days. Winter fly fishing is a totally different game! 

In this episode of the Wisconsin Sportsman Podcast, Josh talks with Pierce Nelles of Good Chance Fly Fishing about chasing winter trout with fly gear in the Driftless. Pierce covers what the trout are eating this time of year, where they're hanging out, and how to make frigid days with cold hands suck a little bit less. Enjoy!
