      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Don't eat the fish in whitewater

Recommended Posts

The designated trout stream doesn't start until approximately 2.5 miles downstream from St Charles. I'm sure there were some trout killed, but if it the kill only occured over a 2 mile stretch of the stream then it was probably mostly chubs and suckers that died. It's a bad situation, but not as terrible as if it happened in the middle of the designated trout water.

Regardless of where this occurred, it's not good. Anytime you dump chemicals into a stream, designated or not, it will have residual effects on the stream. Some not immediately recognizable.

DNR: Area fire affected five miles of river

A fish kill in the Whitewater River two miles north of St. Charles is larger than environmental officials previously reported, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources officials said Tuesday.

Nearly five miles of the South Branch of the river was affected, more than twice what a Lanesboro area DNR Fisheries supervisor estimated Monday. Officials were not sure Tuesday how many fish have died from exposure to anhydrous ammonia after a fire Friday in St. Charles.

Trout fishing areas downstream from the contaminated area were not affected, and anglers who began their season Saturday should not worry, DNR spokesman Harland Hiemstra said. Whitewater State Park was also not affected, because the contaminated portions of the river were in its South Branch; the Middle Branch flows through the park.

Pollution control officials estimated about 500,000 gallons of contaminated runoff from the fire eventually flowed into the river.
