Trout hunting in Fennimore

Drove 3.5 hrs up to Fennimore, WI at 3am so we'd have a full Saturday there. I think I'd prefer to be well-rested next time :\ Saw some birds, not a ton. Had a staring contest with a woodchuck (groundhog). Trout were caught, but not by me. I'd rather see critters and take pics :)

The Cedar Waxwings were loving this cloud of midge flies? above them. You can't tell from the picture, but they are truly stunning birds. Check out the face mask... They are summer and winter residents, although may migrate if berries are less abundant.

You have to sneak up on the trout...

Wasp or fly larvae living inside galls..
