I've got a few days off the end of this week. I plan on doing some exploring and fishing. I'm going to hit the Middle Branch of WW and Trout Run for sure. I was also thinking about checking out Camp Creek, Rush Creek, or just exploring around Laneboro. Does anyone have suggestions to push me one way or another?

Trout run by Preston is a good bet, lots of stream to explore. Also try Forestville State Park by Wykoff, that can be good at times. I grew up right next to Watson Creek in Fillmore county, it is a small little run but I bet you will be the only one on it.

Good Luck

trout run in bucksnort is a good stretch of run.. some super deep holes... i've always done pretty decent at Camp.. was there last week.. caught 3 browns and a rainbow.. all were tiny though... but the section of Root right next to Camp is money... personally not a fan of WW.. Rush Creek is always good times.. Pine Creek is another good stream to fish.. miles of good runs and holes thanks to TU

Anyone every fish Rupprecht's? I used to but that was back in my college day in the late 80's. Neat little stream

Rupprecht's is tough to access these days, the landowners are grumpy. They just adding a fork as designated trout water in that system this year. E - its in the Rollingstone area.

well as long as you're standing in the stream.. there's not much they can do about it.. the section of beaver down at schech's mill.. the land owner is quite the handful at times... but its all designated and its all easement as well

    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
    • Would you use a bobber on your rattle reel with these? I would think a lively minnow would pull the line out of the contacts.
    • My my, how the mighty have fallen...  I went back to the thread on the cook subsidy, and what did I find in the second post from you, on the second page....     Gee, you were ok with the 66 million because it wasn't a stadium or something, but now all butt hurt over 7 million of Indiana money?    Now that there is a funny joke.  
    • Thanks to everyone who replied. Lots of good advice. I'll start with an electrician and go from there.
    • Is there some type of frame or carriage that bolt to machine?  Or do the extra wheels just "float" back there?
    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.
