We did, however, see several huge fish. I had a brown that would have probably measured around 23inches swipe, but miss my wooly bugger only to sink down into the weeds, never to be seen again (that day... I'll get that s.o.b next time) then later in the day while we were working a deep, slow pool another fish about 18 inches lept out of the water and "tail-walked" across the surface right in front of us, unfortunately our flies were now where near the jumping fish.
Then today I switched gears and headed to the Prarie Du Sac dam on the Wisconsin River to try my luck with the walleye and catfish. Right off the bat I caught a small smallmouth bass, but after that it wasn't for another hour before we caught our next fish which was the only walleye of the day that measured a healthy 17 inches.

Although the fishing wasn't spectacular, the time spent fishing with a good friend is never time wasted.
