Re: Stream Conditions

Looked at eight different streams south and north of 90 today. None were fishable, and most weren't close to being so.

Re: Fishing Report- June 11

Hy-Vee Imitation Vanilla Extract. I have fished quite a bit through this spell of gnats and have had nary a bite. I rub it liberally all over face, ears, next, and hat. That said, I have a fishing cohort who gets torn up pretty hard by gnats, more so than I, so some of it must have to do with one's ...

Re: Star Tribune report on stream rehab

Once the Ian Chisholm's, John Lenczewskis, and Paul Krolaks of the world get out of stream restoration, then I'll be less crabby. Oh, that and the past failed projects that wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money. On that note, I'm out the door for a day of fishing. Lots of March B...

Re: Star Tribune report on stream rehab

If we are talking sustainability and improvements taking many lifetimes, I would argue that more is being bitten off than we can chew. Why not do shorter sections, spend more money (per foot) and do a better job? If that means only completing a couple hundred yards per project per year, so be it. T...

Re: Lanesboro Dam Work

TU is too busy licking Ecological Service's boots and begging LSOHC for grant money to continue to implement the high quality stream restoration they are known for (insert joke here). John Lenczewski has worn out his welcome. It's time for new leadership at the state level, one that actually underst...

Let me guess. This is all taxpayer funded?

Re: Lanesboro Dam Work

I hang out a fair share in Lanesboro, so I can attest that the locals support keeping the dam.

I do not happen to echo their sentiment.

Re: Star Tribune report on stream rehab

WGH -TU and Ecological Services have been guessing all along. Ian Chisholm of the DNR is on record saying that there has never been any long-term monitoring of the effectiveness or failure of the H.I. projects since 2009 that use WD/Rosgen.

NONE.

Re: Anyone get today? 5-11-19

I did well, but the weather wasn't as warm as I had hoped, so that shut down some potential bug activity. Water is clear everywhere I fished or drove through. A few anglers out, mainly bait guys. Caught a few on nymphs, a few on streamers, a few on a dry, a few on a dropper.The weather this week loo...
