      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 .

eagle creek? {savage mn}

What is it with this little thing? I have been down there twice to look around {see if I want to fish it} and I have yet to see one single fish? Has anyone ever fished it and is it worth really fishing in the next few days?

Thanks, Kruger

I live near there. I've walked it a few times looking for trout. I have never seen any. I would rather drive an hour for much better waters.

I've fished it once. didn't catch anything but I did see 1 small trout. I probably won't bother with it again.

Yep, I went out and fished it yesterday and not a thing, I saw 3 smalll fish all day {5 hrs} of fishing. I walked the whole stream and the fish I did see were in undercuts and very tight liped. The structure in the the stream is very minimal for the fish, which is not good. I fished with all flies and , tried several differnt pattrens but nothing.I guess I dont need to go back again! Ace what did you use to get those very few fish in the past? just curious?

Thanks, Kruger

Kitty,

It's the small stream that runs by the car wash next to the tin shed. It's not much of a stream. Like I said, I fished it once and probably won't bother again. You can jump across it for the most part.

they are very very timid. I fished it 2 years ago and saw 2 or 3 fish. The only reason i saw them was due to me spooking them. I did see one rising close to the mouth near a root ball but he was quickly out of there the minute he saw my line hit the water 10 feet upstream from it. havent been back since. i might would give it a try again if i lived right beside it but its not worth driving too, if you ask me.

You fished it on Friday? Trout season doesn't open till 4/18, and as far as I know, Eagle Creek is not considered a SE stream for catch and release. Not only are you wasting time fishing it, you're also asking for a ticket.

Yeah that creek hasnt been stocked in a looong time, there are very few trout if any left in there, also hard to accsess in many places.

There is only a very small part of the river that is fishable. There are several boiling springs that bring up water from hundreds of feet below. The water has zero oxygen in it. At best it's marginal water. It flows through my back yard I've had a few talks with the DNR as they remove buck torn. It's not worth much time fishing, it is a unique area.
