      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 .

North Fork Shoshone River in Wyoming

Recommended Posts

Anyone have experience fishing the North Fork of the Shoshone river? I'll be taking the family to Yellowstone and I'll have some time to trout fish here. I'll be bringing both flyfishing and spinning gear. Any advice on wet/dry flies or lures would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You might want to call one of the local fly shops. I stopped by a place called the Humble Fly in Cody last week and chatted with the fellow behind the counter for a bit. He had some pretty interesting comments and suggestions for catching trout. While they do guided trips also, he was very blunt in telling me I wouldn't have to book a trip to get advice on flies and technique.

The rivers in Yellowstone Park were full of fishermen. Jr. and I spent a little time with our spinning gear, but while we had a few lookers, couldn't get any takers. According to the guy at the fly shop, fish outside the park for best results.

I'll be outside the park when fishing and I think possibly on semi-private water so we'll see how much more willing the trout are.

don't know if you've already left or not, but definitely give that river a shot...... fish above the reservoir-- you'll see why once you drive up from cody...... grab some copper johns in sizes 14-18..... red worked great..... black are nice as well..... just fish under an indicator and you're set...... nice riffles, runs, pocket water, etc...... check with the fly shops in cody for hatch advice, but i'm sure you'd be fine in that fast water with some tan elk hair caddis and some parachute adams, and this time of year there will be hoppers flying around-- 12-16 on the caddis and adams, 8-10 with the hoppers....... it's less crowded than the easily accessible park water and bigger fish..... just be nice and put lots of 'em back so i can catch 'em next time i'm out there......

Mac,

Thanks for the advice. Leaving tonight. Definitely bringing some terrestials. Have some Adams & Caddis. Will have to pick up some Copper Johns when we get out there. As far as numbers, I've not been fly fishing for several years so just being out there with a fly rod will be a treat. If I catch something it'll be even better. Anything I catch will likely go back in the water.

    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
    • You might want to throw that on the C/list since by the time we are done, you may just have to give it away. Or tow it out to the woods with that heavy support rope!
