Re: Rush Creek, MN

I checked out this project for the first time Friday afternoon. Eroded banks, gravel bars created by wash outs, and weeds and invasives where ground cover was planted. My favorite was a tree stump anchored into a bank in a stretch of the stream that's uniformly the same depth with no other structure...

Re: Fishing Report 6/24

Foam beetles definitely work in SE, and quite well. As jrs stated, they're a great indicator fly that also get crushed. Tuck them under trees, over hanging brush, cliff walls, or run them through pockets. I fish them with good success from May til the season closes.

Re: Advice on western fly fishing.

Re: Advice on western fly fishing.

With the exception of fishing from a drift boat as not real fly fishing, all true and good points. That said, again the dull scenery is drab at best, and you can’t even buy a beer in Fort Smith.

Re: Advice on western fly fishing.

I look forward to reading a post trip report. I turned 21 in the Big Horns (which was a while ago) on a backpacking trip. Back then I wasn't a fly angler. I keep saying one of these years I'll go back fly rods in tow. It's beautiful. You'll have a blast. With the risk of offending some, I wouldn't m...

Re: What is it about this year?

Put some miles on your wading boots. There might be more fish in the streams than ever before.

Re: 5/11 and 5/12 Fishing Report

I fished Thursday through Saturday with my dog south of 90, different reaches of the same system. Rain is definitely needed. That said, fishing was very good all three days. Thursday afternoon I had was able to fish tan caddis dries to rising fish in a couple pools/runs. Other than that, it was a dr...

Re: Creek Access and Easements [SE MN]

That said, how many landowners are going to have a problem with a dog that's by his owners side not causing problems? Thoughts? (I am also working on getting permission in spots I fish most frequently). I wouldn't imagine that would be a problem, however the majority of dog owners probably can't co...
