Fishing was fair to good on the Wilson last weekend, despite low and clear conditions. Rains Wednesday through Friday this week are predicted to bring the Wilson up 0.4 ft, which should give it a touch of color and get some fish moving for the weekend.

There are broodstock hatchery fish, and wild fish throughout the system. Float fishing jigs, beads, or bait, drift fishing, nymphing, and swinging flies or spinners are all good techniques.
