Tiny springs trickle down the sandstone bluffs of the driftless area in western Wisconsin, forming small flows that join up with other spring-fed trickles until there's enough water to gurgle and cut its way through a three or four-foot wide stream bed winding through the forest down to the Mississippi River. At some point the water is deep enough that it can support the smallest of fisheries, hidden in the shade and fleeting beams of sunlight which reveal gray-sided ghosts blended with the bottom that would go unseen, if not for a furtive dart when they suspect something is amiss.
