Conditions : The past week has once again been very wet and gray. There have been a few snowflakes in the air in the far north, but not any accumulation yet.

Recent rains continue to have rivers flowing well above normal for this time of year. The Bois Brule, Flambeau, Chippewa, Black, Menominee, Peshtigo and Oconto rivers all surged over the weekend. The Menominee river shot up 4,000 cubic feet per second to 7,000 cfs by Sunday. The lower Wisconsin River is back on the rise after beginning to fall last week and was at over 26,000 cfs at Muscoda, meaning most sandbars are again under water. Lake Superior experienced some major wave action along the south shore this week making it too rough to boat.

The rain has once again shut down some popular trails in the state due to flooding. The Sugar River is closed in its entirety and the sections of the Badger are closed again. The Elroy-Sparta and 400 trails remain closed from storm damage in August.

Anglers on the Wolf River were catching crappies. Central Wisconsin trout streams are out of their banks and unfishable. This may have realistically ended the inland trout season as waters may not be fishable before the Oct. 15 closing.

Lake Michigan was also rough keeping many boats off the water but the trout and salmon runs on tributaries continued despite high river levels. Fishing pressure was high on the Kewaunee, Ahnapee, East and West Twin and Manitowoc rivers and Stony Creek with folks crowding around some dams. Many dark brown and black chinook were being caught.
