Re: Resolving the Current Trout Habitat Problem

I have a number of issues in how you are presenting your photos. First off, I agree with the use of rock in the appropriate places. Though the "curb & gutter" w/lots of rock design I have seen done of some SE MN streams is way too expensive & when they blow out and they will, it leaves the stream w...

Re: Stream reports?

Anyone make it out today? I fished a short section of water that is slated to drastically change in the next year or two. I only fished for about an hour and fifteen minutes and only caught 4 trout. There were plenty of boot tracks and a couple other cars so my expectations weren't to high. Water w...

Unfortunately the farmers will use this against the State and say that the set backs are not doing their job and wasting valuable farmland. With low Ag prices this will be mentioned.

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 s...

Re: Fishing Reports

I fished a non designated stretch on Saturday morning. I caught fish but it wasn't what I had hoped for. The water was still slightly stained so i'm guessing it was fairly cold still. I found a handful of big fish on this stretch last year but didn't see any that day. I did catch a 10" brown that yo...

Re: Resolving the Current Trout Habitat Problem

Thoughts om mine that come to mind would be: How long does it take for the roots of the planted grasses to get deep enough to hold the soil in this design type. I think we know a fall seeding doesn't allow for adequate time (in the North country) to gets roots established. Could this design type be ...

Re: Minnesota Trout Unlimited Rush Creek Habitat Disaster

I find this post troubling. What is being argued against DNR eco services is more than merited. I also believe that If Tom and Garry are willing to drive around inspecting these projects and informing others on what has happened great. Other than that they should/should have remained neutral and not...

Re: Rush Creek HI work

Tom, Thanks for going out and inspecting all of these sites. Posting this on the web with pictures SHOULD speak volumes and go a long way. I hope this is the last straw.

I could tell my first year with TU ( 2008-9 ish) that the Kool Aid had been spiked.
