      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Anyone been there or around there recently? Me and some friends camped there for a weekend last year and fished the river, it was a lot of fun. And we had decent luck with the Brown and Rainbows there. Will be back there again in the next few months. Would love to hear some info or tips if anyone has any!

Well I have 2 fly rods but am not too certain on flies to use. So last time I was there I didn't fly fish much, I just used my UL mostly with small spinners or panther martins. I used a hook and worm a little bit too.

Spinners and worms will always work well, especially at low light. I prefer size #6, all silver. Little Cleo's work well too. I would check out MN TU message board site for detailed hatch info if you don't get enough advice here. Or try the fly fishing board on this site. That gas station in Elba sells flys too so you could ask what they are hitting when you get down there. Often finding the boxes with the least amount of flies will tell you what everyone is buying.

Right now I have heard LT Hendrickson dry fly fishing is really starting to pick up. 10:30 - 1:00 thing and then the spinner fall at dusk. Lots of rising trout!

You could always nymph fish using the standard bead head pheasant tail, #16. Tan caddis. The basics. Yet it just depends on when you go and what is hatching.

As for where to go if you are camping in WW state park and want to fish it get up early before TDH and the kids wake up. Hike or drive over to where Trout Run joins too. Otherwise explore the bridges around Elba on the north and south forks for some privacy.
