I've tried to find the public access to Old Mill Stream in Marine on St. Croix, but I wasn't able to. From what I understand it has brook trout, plenty of 'em and nothing much else. Good sized fish, too but that doesn't matter if you can't find the access. If anyone knows anything about that stream that I don't, I'd love to hear it.

I'm sure someone will chime in here but in the mean time check through the St.Croix forum. I remember some talk of this a while back. I would help you out but I'm not familiar that far north.

If there is no public access why don't you figure out what section to try. Then look up GIS property map info by county, ID landowners, call them up in advance and ask permission?

Also would you be open to buying a WI license? Cross the St Croix and you have way more choices.

Find a bridge or somewhere's to put in and then you can just wade the river. It's perfectly legal to stay in the creek even if it feels like you're in someone's backyard.

Tom what is going on. You on any other boards or mainly this one and MNTU? Got any trips planned ahead? We are going to New Glarus WI, Viroqua WI, and Dakota MN. Last of the trips of the summer.

Still making your own spinners? Did you ever fish Stream X yet?

Lawrence Creek in Franconia has brookies. Look upstream from the bridge in town and you will see them. I have heard that the landowners are not very welcoming along the stream, especially downstream from the bridge.

    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
    • Here's the exact reason why I encourage everyone to buy the digital readout.  After getting holes drilled and everything setup, I always run my bathroom roof fan/vent to get rid of the moisture as the slush on the floor gets melted.  Yesterday I cranked the fan on max which moves some serious air, but I forgot to crack a window, which caused it to actually suction the CO from my water heater back into the house through a propane line pass through.  I looked up and saw 30ppm on the CO detector, which isn't high, but an indicator that something wasn't right.  All it took was cracking a window and turning down the fan for a minute and it was back to 0.  
    • You do realize the person you wanted to be president couldn't even understand the proper protocol for setting up a cabinet level email account don't you?    
    • I looked into fiberglass a few years back for a build.  I decided against it as it needed a wood backer.  Not sure if there is a different product out there now.  
    • finally got out Friday, put on 75 miles in the heavy drizzle, not the first time I have riden in the rain. the trails were OK, I rode in aitkin co. that doubles the miles I put on in the last two years.
    • they load tested the battery and said it was bad, everything else they said was fine, they put in a new battery. tried it today after sitting since Tuesday, and it started up fine, problem fixed.   I have a 2002 grizz carbed, and that sat for close to 3 months, went to start it this weekend, and it cranked for at least a minute (very cold blooded machine) and it started, it has the same battery that's in the Polaris.
    • Precious snowflake Trump needs a safe space from the media apparently.   I suggest you familiarize yourself with the word kakistocracy, because that appears to be the road we will be traveling down.
    • No,I am saying those who are left with jobs are working for those who Obama is happy to give money to for nothing. He was as bad as it gets in terms of getting people back to work after a recession especially when you factor in the amount of money he spent to do it.
