The 'system' needs to adjust for sinkholes, very shallow surface::bedrock depths, and an since they can't necessarily spread the waste when they want to because of weather - a huge factor of safety in storage. Karst geology and high animal density operations aren't a good combination. Remains to be ...

Feedlot Public Meeting TONIGHT (10/16) in Lewiston

Just a small (3700!) animal unit increase. That's a lot of shiz.

I believe those are Winona State's automatic water quality sample collection systems, not stream gauges per se.

MNDNR/MNTU/HTU are discussing prescribed burns and how to do - and who does them. If the MNDNR gets involved, there are a number of state requirements that must be met... doesn't mean their burn crew wouldn't be used, just more paperwork. Burns are tough from a volunteer standpoint - the weather and...

"but I like the idea of hitting up a spring when that is a concern" That's a bad idea. From what I've been told by a local geologist, you can't even legally have your well pull from that level of aquifer in SE Minn - too likely to be contaminated. The problem with filters isn't the cysts/bacteria/et...

Once we get into September - and into October where - and into our new 'town' season - the trout will chase streamers. Sometimes a long ways.... Give 'em a try. My local favorite is a #6 or #4 black bead head with a black bunny strip tied in behind the bead, poked thru the hook , left about 1" or so...

Other than streamers, I'm partial to the the orvis knot for tying on flies. It ties quick, doesn't waste much for the tag, seems strong. http://howtoflyfish.orvis.com/fly-fishing-knots/orvis-knot-video For streamers, a non-slip mono loop if I need a loop knot. For tippet to leader - here's a quick/e...
