Timber Coulee 9/11/11

We fished the Timber Coulee, one of the top 100 trout streams in all of America, as named by Trout Unlimited, from about 9 to 11 in the morning. Not a cloud in the sky, 80 degrees. Very clear water, fish ultra-spooky.

I had a lot of action on a #8 cricket pattern. Released a 12" brown and hooked many more. Timber Coulee is a fairly narrow spring creek and is not at all visually-distinctive. It looks like many other spring creeks you encounter in SW Wisconsin.
