Well-Fed On Wisconsin's Brule

March 31, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

Get beyond the cold peanut-butter sandwiches and out of the smoke of frying Italian sausage and apparently you can do quite well catching steelhead on Wisconsin’s Brule river right now. Sam Cook describes the opening day action near Mays Ledges on Saturday and notes that an opportunity was missed by those who looked only at temperatures and stream flows: “The river wore jewelry for the opener. Ice beads clung to a red osier dogwood over the water. Ice earrings dangled from low-hanging ash branches. Ice pendants hung from midriver snags.” In the River Falls Journal.
