Flooding...

12 posts in this topic

I spoke with my folks back in Austin, and they said the rivers there have begun to floor pretty good and they have blocked I-90. I have also heard that Rochester has been getting pretty heavy rain fall too. Is there any word on the water levels around Spring Valley? Chatfield? Preston? Lanesboro?

I ask because I have been psyched to go trout fishing once I get home and it would be nice to not see the rivers get trashed again because of flood damage. ANy info and updates will be appreciated.

There has definitely been some flooding across many parts of SE MN. It seems to be worse south of I-90 and in Fillmore and Houston counties in particular.

I would think you might have a hard time finding fishable streams this week. Barring any major new rainfall, things should be ok in a few days particularly north of I-90 and on smaller spring creeks.

How has rain fall been around the cities? Has the whole state been getting hit hard, or just certain areas?

We've had a few storms roll through in the last few days and the whole state has gotten some rain. Each storm has been a little different in where the heaviest rain fell, but I believe overall the rain has been heaviest to the south. See http://www.srh.noaa.gov/rfcshare/precip_analysis_new.php and select "Last 7 Days".

Maybe WxDaddy will weigh in with some professional input on this.

Hows trout fishing been since the water levels started to go down? Was there any major impact on the streams?

I've been to 2 streams since the latest flooding and although both streams had been out of their banks the adult fish seemed to come through it fine. I have a feeling that we lost most of another years hatch though. That would be about 4 of the last 5 years that has happened.

    • Are we comparing Teddy to Carr ? Is Carr good ? OK, simmering down fine keep Theodore for a backup because in 3 years when he's finally ready maybe again, Bradford might be down. People are assuming Ted can come back from this he nearly needed an amputation from what the training staff did saved his leg or was that report false ? I think the next Louisville guy might be a franchise QB. Ted needs to fill out in a hurry, maybe this down time will put some weight on him. I look at it this way in most sports. Is Teddy making the guys around him better or is it the other way. Either way we're 3-0 and I've forgotten Teddy just like everyone else has, no one is shedding a tear that Ted is sidelined, beat Rodgers and Newton back to back, feeling blessed Teddy wasn't out there tossing a flailed left handed pass to nobody.  
    • I just finished this drawing last week. This particular piece is going to be printed on shirts.  
    • Some great smallmouth bass and crappie action as I kayak fish in Northern Michigan  
    • In this video I'm in my kayak on a lake in Northern Michigan fishing for crappies and bluegills in late September.  
    • No you don't deserve better.   Trent Reznor ( nine inch nails) had it right    
    • Yep for most in the group it was our first real trip out West, next trip will probably be mule deer, tag soup on elk hurts a lot more with how pricey those tags are.
    • I am planning to be there as well.
    • I also use the zman original chatterbait. I am a chatterbait nut. Probably one of my favorite baits to throw. The strike king pure poisons are great too but swim a little lower in the water column than the zmans. My biggest fish the past few years have usually come on a chatterbait in the spring and fall. Early spring and late fall I will use mostly a chartreuse/white chatterbait with a white super fluke as a trailer. Very subtle action on the fluke, which I love in the colder water periods. Once the water starts warming up a bite I will switch to a lake fork tackle live magic shad. I'll throw mostly the zmans candy craw with a green pumpkin lake fork magic shad. I fish these over the top and through weeds in the spring and fall and rip them if they get caught in the weeds. They also work great around docks and skipping them under docks. A few weeks ago I wish fishing a dirty lake with a great dock bite and caught about 18-19lbs off of chatterbaits by fishing them around docks and skipping them under docks.
