Willard Munger Trail Trout

4 posts in this topic

I will be making a bike trip from hinckley to duluth with my brothers in a couple weeks. I would bet the streams near there have cooled down, but as long as i'm out there, i'm going to give them a try.

We will be staying at moose lake state park one night and the next night in duluth. we gave ourselves ample time to make stops along the way. Does anybody reccomend any streams along the trail? i see the Moosehorn and Blackhoof are close to the trail. As are the Little and Big Otter Rivers, Crystal, Gill, Mission, and Sargent closer to Duluth. How is angling access to these streams? I think if i have no luck, i'm going to make a car trip up to Gooseberry on the last day and check it out.

I'm not looking for tropies. What i would be most satisified with is catch four 10-12 inch trout that my brothers and i could eat for supper.

Thanks in advance to any who respond.

I am not familiar with these streams in the area near the munger. I have caught a few trout in the blackhoof closer to Hwy. 23. I had to work my butt off to get them and they are sparse but it sure felt good to pull in a couple brookies. Well good luck and let us know how you do.

The Moosehorn has decent trout fishing, but in isolated spots. The river holds fish, but most of the areas that I have found trout have been privately owned/permissioned access.

The Blackhoof is worth the effort. I have fished it for years and would like to think I know a little about where fish are especially with the recent hot days. You will find fish, but you will need to work.

Otter is good, but the beavers are again having their way with the stream. If anyone is interested in talking to the DNR about a stream project on Otter, let me know. That stream could be great if the beavers were gone.

Crystal is alright, but it depends on the water level. Have only fished it when the waters are up.

Good luck.

A few weekends ago I fished Sand and Hay creek in the st. croix state park, didn't catch anything but I saw a few trout that I spooked. You may have better luck though, as I am just a rookie! haha

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
