| Welcome to the internet home of Silver Doctor Fly Fishing, Wisconsin's most experienced guide service, specializing in Driftless Area spring creek trout and speycasting for autumn steelhead and salmon in the tributaries of the Great Lakes.
This site is dedicated to the Midwestern fly fisher and the fly tiers of the world. Whether your love is the intimacy of a limestone creek, swinging spey flies through a tumbling steelhead river, or tying the "perfect" fly, I hope you find something useful and entertaining in these pages.
Silver Doctor Fly Fishing supports The West Fork Sports Club, The Federation of Fly Fishers, and Trout Unlimited in their efforts to enhance and protect our waterways and fisheries. By joining your local chapter, you will help preserve fishing for future generations.
The GUIDED FISHING pages include: tackle recommendations, a hatch chart, live weather links, places to stay and eat, and will help everyone, even those who don't wish to book a guide, plan a trip to Wisconsin's Driftless Region or prime steelhead/salmon rivers.
I'm very happy to announce that I have joined the Scott Rod Company Pro Staff.
Working with a top end company that understands rod design for everything from our
intimate little creeks through salt water monsters, & everything in between is exciting.
This will be bunches of fun. I am also associated with AirFlo, & Lamson/Waterworks.
This site will be updated as conditions & hatches change during the fishing season. Suggestions & constructive criticism are always welcome.
Warm, sunny days in April can produce surface caddis & stonefly activity.
Warmer, cloudy days will bring on Baetis hatches.
Greased leader nymphing & assorted dry patterns can produce some hungry fish.
No visible risers? Dredging with scuds, PTs, GRHEs, etc will find willing bottom huggers.
Watch for upstream migrating brook lampreys. Big trout love them.
Guided trips(1/2 Day) are possible, but weather demands we must be flexible.
I've had both vaccines, but we will maintain a flyrod length of social distancing.
I'm afraid we'll also have to be in our own vehicles, & provide our own food & drinks.
I have disinfected high end loaner rods available for this specialized angling.
General Inland Season opens Saturday, May1, at 5:00a.m.
We need to remember our manners, & respect fellow anglers & landowners.
