Hi everyone,

I am heading south to Wisconsin for a while coming up in May. I will be in the northern area (Sawyer County). I was wondering what all your opinions are on some good patterns for trout in the rivers and bass in the lakes. I already talked to Jason and he was very helpful, but the proverb goes, "In an abundance of counselors plans succeed," so I wanted your takes on it also. I am not much of a dry guy. I like nymphs, but if you want to throw a few good dry patterns in anyway then I would still snatch up the patterns fly, line, and backing (Ok..slightly altered), but anyway thanks for your time.

I am busy so I might not be able to check back on here very often. Be prepared if you ask a question, you may or may not get a quick reply.

I like nymphs

Hare's ear soft hackle, pheasant tail soft hackle and PT nymphs, sizes #12 to #18. Plus, woolly buggers in black and dark brown.

It is still winter up there with over 3 feet of snow and the lakes have about 24"-30" of ice still.

Bass season doesn't open until mid-June.

Alright, Thanks John! I will be around long enough to hit it still. I am going down to work so it won't make a difference if the ice goes out late.
My friend down there gives me a hard time because I sent our weather down, but did not take it back yet. :) Please enjoy it for me...actually I don't miss it so you can keep it until I arrive. As for me I will enjoy the slush and mud of spring.
