      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 .

pine creek v.s. trout brook

Recommended Posts

While normally it can be dangerous to discuss creeks by name on the internet...

Pine has no brookies, it's a marginal stream.

Trout brook has brookies, very small. Stream probably under a lot of pressure.

I got my first brookie though from trout brook. You'll just have to go elsewhere to find a decent sized one.

There are a some. I think the population is small. IIRC the ratio for me is 10 to 1 brookies to browns.

Also, I would encourage catch and release on these streams as they seem to be pressured a great deal and they are not big streams. Maybe some day nice fish will come out of them.

I am not sure. These are very small streams. I doubt much of anything else. Perhaps some small chubs?

Roughfish, which Pine Creek are you referring to? There are a few in the upper midwest. I'm like Tom, I normally won't discuss specific streams on the internet, especially little streams. But I do know that Pine Creek's in MN and in WI both hold brookies. The one in MN has some brookies in the upper stretches, but in my opinion it's had better days. I've noticed the water quality and clarity have been reduced in the past decade. Lots of pastureland lower down that I'm sure adds sediment and warms the water some. The Pine in WI has had some TU improvement projects done on it in the last couple of years. You won't find any monsters here, but you'll definitely find brookies.

Trout Brook has a very small brown population. The brook runs into the Canon River, which has a variety of species for you to fish. The brookies in Trout Brook are on the small side.
