Re: Clean Water Act

Unfortunately there are more things coming into play than just making money. Supplying goods and services for more and more people( over population) requires greater and greater utilization of our natural resources there is no way around that without severely reducing human population, that is a fac...

If I were going for big brookies, I'd probably keep going past Nipigon to the Sutton.

Stream Report 9-13-19

As of this morning its likely most streams will be high and dirty, or at least off color, some more than others. I'm sure its possible some upper headwater streams may be fish-able by tomorrow, but most of our major fisheries will be lucky to clear enough to fish by mid week or later! Reminder: Harv...

Re: What type of Flyfisherman are you??

I usually just tell the truth about how fishing is, and if I can help someone catch a few extra fish because i gave them some insight into what the fish are feeding on or even give then a few flies so much the better. Why not help someone, after all its fishing not treasure hunting! Besides, its a g...

Re: New Missouri Brown Trout State Record - 40 Pounds 6 ounces

We fish the Nipigon River with typical walleye gear. A 15 pound King will give you all you can handle in the current with that setup. With that gear you would have all you could handle. So I assume you're after brook trout as well since you are fishing a river known for large brook trout? Nipigon s...

Re: Stream Reports?

Trout Run was barely fish-able yesterday and with the rain received early this morning I'm going to say some streams may be off color and maybe marginal around the Chatfield area? Of course, seeing conditions first hand for ones self is best. I forgot to mention, more MNTU stream repair work was bei...

Re: New Missouri Brown Trout State Record - 40 Pounds 6 ounces

This couldn't be any further from the truth in my experience. I have had my thumb burned many times when they make big runs. I have also lost many that shook the hook while thrashing their head back and fourth while three feet above the surface of the water. You must be fishing them in the lake its...

Re: New Missouri Brown Trout State Record - 40 Pounds 6 ounces

Big trout out of Lake Michigan taste just fine. Not talking a 40#er but..... I've tried fish out of Lake Michigan many times, you can eat them, but "personally" not a big fan. Of course, if you smoke them any fish tastes ok! I'm leaving Thursday night for Canada after lake run salmon and trout. The...

Re: New Missouri Brown Trout State Record - 40 Pounds 6 ounces

Its like keeping catch-able size stock trout to eat, normally they taste poor at best compared to wild trout. Usually fish that have anything to do with stocking always are second rate in my mind! Example: its fun to catch lake run trout species (steelhead, salmon) but again the experience is still ...
