Re: Season’s End Report

It was a very weird year for me. The hatches were all messed up and a few streams I enjoy were pounded by the spring floods. Probably the smallest average size trout I've ever had in a season across all streams I fished. I hope this isn't a new trend with climate change, but have a bad feeling this ...

Re: Glass rods

Tom,

We definitely need to get together and fish/cast some rods next spring. Dusty is a stand up guy and makes some nice rods. Glad things worked out in the end.

Re: 5 driftless rods?

This is quite the loaded question. Kinda like asking someone what car they prefer. Really depends on your own personal preferences and what your trying to accomplish. I tend to fish shorter rods than most, but have a couple 11' nymphing rods. Really depends on my mood and stream I'm fishing on what ...

Re: What type of Flyfisherman are you??

I also don't think I have ever fit any of these catagories, but this was a fun read. I have always been a "match the hatch" kind of person because I find it interesting to see what they are keying in on eating. I've enjoyed learning about the different insects and the variations they can have from s...

Tricos:. Anyone seeing many yet?

Just curious if anyone is seeing many tricos yet? They have been sporatic up here so far, but haven't been to SE MN in almost a month. Hoping to head that way later this week.

Re: Any hatch updates?

I saw at least two species on Sat. Most were grey caddis, but did see several of the larger tan winged.

Re: Any hatch updates?

Caddis were emerging for around 40 minutes on the stream I was on south of 90 yesterday. Certainly not a blanket hatch, but enough to get most of the fish in a pool looking up. Wish I wasn't assigned yard work duty today.

Re: Stream reports?

I've had issues with both spin and fly fishermen. Most being fly fishermen. I first try to see if they need help or are new to the sport. If this clearly is not the case then it's a fight fire with fire type of situation. Usually they are cutting you off and high holing you in my experience. They st...

Re: Fishing Reports

Friday there were just enough BWO's to get a few pods of fish to rise consistently. We both managed a couple of fish from each pod on top. Mostly a streamers/nymphing day. Sat was better and more bugs and fish looking up. Still not what I was hoping for hatch wise. Sunday was the much better day. Th...
