      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 .

Camping and hiking are nice but the fishing may not be the best. I only fished the lake once with no results and the river holds your typical small brookies. And they are few and far between catches. Beautiful scenery to be fishing in none-the-less.

Midcoast when will you be up that way? If your heading up within the next week, I'd happily show you some decent spots not too far from the park.

But yeah the parks since. I have only caught tiny trout from the rivers in that area. Go fish inland.

mid-- i haven't fished the river extensively, but have visited the park twice..... fished the lake once and didn't hook up with anything...... but i think the dnr stocks it every year with splake..... check the lake finder at mndnr for whichever lake that it (benson, maybe?)..... we probably weren't at the right depth-- i think the splake head deep in the summer...... maybe try some smaller lake trout jigging spoons or jigging with minnow or cut nightcrawlers and see if you can't nab 'em.... the lake's not that big, so once you find 'em, you should find a few more.....

the brookies in the river are by no means big, but both times i tried it, we caught a bunch of them...... biggest probably was 6-8"..... but they are a blast on a light fly rod..... just walk down to the bridge where the superior hiking trail crosses the river..... start there, find some deeper pools/runs and flick yer fly in.... they are pretty eager to say the least..... perhaps not big enough to eat, but lots of fun to catch..... and above the park, before the river takes it's big tumble down the canyon, the fishing is supposed to be better-- can't speak from experience though.....

beautiful park-- i highly recommend it.....
