      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 .

DNR Says Streams In Good Shape For Opener

Recommended Posts

Minnesota streams in good shape for statewide stream trout opener.

Trout anglers likely will find good fishing conditions when streams open statewide April 18 for trout fishing.

“Trout populations are generally in good shape in the southeast streams,” said Mark Ebbers, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) trout and salmon program consultant. “In many streams, adult populations are at the same level as they were before the flood in 2007.”

Anglers can find trout stream locations online. Specific information on the Whitewater River, a popular trout fishing destination in southeastern Minnesota, is available online.

Trout streams with special regulations are listed in the DNR’s 2009 Fishing Regulations booklet.

Anglers fishing for stream trout must possess a trout stamp validation in addition to a regular fishing or combination license. Licenses and trout stamps purchased in 2008 expire at midnight on April 30. The trout stamp validation costs $10.

“Purchasing trout stamps is an investment in Minnesota’s cold water fisheries,” Ebbers said. “Funds raised through the program go directly to benefit trout habitat.”
