Fall Line Outfitters Co.'s Tip of the Week

The trout have seen a lot of anglers and imitations come and go. Staying stealthy and being able to present flies without spooking the fish can be very important. Keep low, lengthen that leader, and wade slowly so you aren't sending waves upstream. Rest the fish and size your fly down if you are getting refusals.

Description: About Tomorrow River

The Tomorrow River undergoes many changes as it flows its 22 miles through sandy Portage County. The upper Tomorrow is characterized by tight quarters fishing for wild Brown Trout and native Brook Trout. These sandy headwaters give way to a greater variety of water types, punctuated by large granite boulders as the Tomorrow transitions into its lower sections. Locals use the Amherst Dam as a landmark to distinguish between the Tomorrow’s upper and lower sections. As a whole, the Tomorrow River sustains a healthy trout population with its fair share of 20” fish. Each June, multiple generations of anglers converge in anticipation of the Tomorrow’s prolific Hex hatch. Only a 20 minute drive from Stevens Point, with easy access points in Nelsonville, Amherst, and Waupaca.
