      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 .

I've only fished Hay Creek

Recommended Posts

So, I live in the cities, and want to go trout streamin', but I'm sick of fishing Hay creek... any cool rivers, or streams that I could wade in, and have a hope of catching a trophy, or that there of? I don't mind driving a little more, but the book from the DNR is good help to show where trout streams, but i tried once to check out some of the other streams listed in the book, but they are all so small, and shallow, and... well, is there anywhere around that I could feel a little more confidence in a chance of getting some bigger trout?

Whitewater River, Beaver Creek, Root River, 3 larger bodies of water that come to mind. One thing to do is check out the stream on google earth with the trout guide as a reference. That'll give you a better handle on what you can expect

add Rush Creek and Pine Creek to that list

PS: just cuz they look small from where you're looking doesn't mean somewhere along the stream there is a nice hole holding bigger trout

The little cannon river is a decent one to fish pretty much all over. One day i went fishing on a section that does not get fished heavily at all an caught 7 browns smallest one was 17 inches and the biggest was 24 inches awesome day of fishing. I also got a bunch of chubs.

Ever considered western Wisconsin? Shell out an out of state license but I think it is worth it. Pretty hard to beat the Kinni and Rush. Both have high numbers of trout and are more substantial rivers in comparison to Hay. You can get to Glen Park and fish lower Kinni in 30 minutes from the TCs.

I have fished Little Cannon. Ended up catching more chubs than trout. Plus it is incredibly silty, like quick sand in places. Not as pristine of a stream in comparison and imagine it dirties up easily after rain.

BTW, what kind of fish are you holding?

best thing you can do is get trout map book from DNR or use their HSOforum. Not as easy as on paper but definetly will help you explore and get some great ideas.
