The Driftless – It Slows Me Down   3 comments

What do I love about the Driftless Region of Wisconsin? It slows me down. It flushes the fumes of Madison from me. The beauty of the place is a salve for my soul. I can’t wait to return and soak in some more Driftless.

After fishing for a couple hours yesterday evening, Stephen and I were ready to get back in the car and return to the comfort of our homes. But when I woke up this morning I was longing for the place again. I always knew the Driftless was beautiful, and a drive along Hwy 14 was a novel retreat. But since last summer, when I fell in love with a fish named Trout, I have an entirely new appreciation for how special the Driftless is.

I could spend a long time here

  1. Honestly, this is becoming one of my all-time favorite places. Thanks for reminding me I’m inside at my desk.

  2. Hi Guys,

    I am a huge fan of the blog. I am actually headed up to the Baraboo region in 2 weeks and would love some info on where you guys were fishing. I’m new to the sport and would appreciate any info!

    • Hi Frank,

      Otter Creek for some beautiful brook trout fishin’ but don’t say I told ya’!

      You can’t go wrong in the Baraboo Hills because the water quality can’t be beat.

      Pack a lunch and plan on a little bit of a walk cuz’ the road is washed out in a few spots. Bring a camera too.

      Have fun and thanks for the message.
