HATCHES

We should start seeing Light Hendricksons soon, and March Browns and Yellow Sallies should not be far behind. LH's should start this coming week and March Browns and Yellow Sallies maybe later in the week? If you fish streams that still have good hatches of these invertebrates good to excellent fish...

Re: 5/16-5/17 Rainfall

I was by a number of streams today south of I-90. It appears most streams in Fillmore, Houston and parts of Winona will be fishable. The exception will be the larger streams and most streams north of I-90. Keep in mind "certain small streams" north of I-90 may be fishable as well.

Re: 5/11 and 5/12 Fishing Report

I would argue that based upon what I have seen the last week to ten days, there are a few streams that could use some flushing as their slime/algae growth is significant due to lack of water (and high concentrations of nitrates). We need some substantial rain, IMO. No dries yesterday, but sight fis...

Re: H.I. Promo Video

Why not address the underlying causes of flooding like poor farming practices instead of trying to use the stream as a band aid of the deeper issue? Harder social action to sell? Seems crazy to me that they make it out that we need to "save" the stream because the stream will destroy itself and ign...

Re: Cold Front Strategies

Mt Dew Dynasty/ Good for you, it's always nice to have good day especially when you had to figure out a few strategies that enable you to be successful! Saturday actually turned out to be decent day with highs in the low 60's. So it really wasn't much of a major cold front. Still it was not A warm f...

Re: Cold Front Strategies

Some my worst fishing has been when cold fronts move in. However, cloudy conditions with light drizzle/rain and warm temperatures can mean excellent fishing, particularly streamer/ lure fishing. IMO the very best streamer/lure fishing is under those conditions. Large trout generally do not like to f...

Re: Habitat Improvement

So there is a disconnect between the MNTU and anglers? Sounds like they believe they are doing good for improving the habitat but what they believe helps, simply does not. So what should be being done is leaving trees and shrub to overhang the rivers/streams as well as creating deeper pools instead...

Re: Habitat Improvement

hunn360, Its because most of the work done by MNTU "does not improve trout habitat"! Their idea of trout habitat is, sloping stream banks, removing trees and throwing in a few root wads which really provides no significant improvement in ADULT trout habitat! To increase adult trout abundance especia...

Re: Cold Front Strategies

Time of day and water temperatures matter when you get hit with a cold front, too. It's frustrating for us all that the weather sucks right now, but you give it a go and see what happens. As someone who has fished the area for quite a while, don't assume that there will be no one around this weeken...
