    Nice trout! I would quess around 22 inches.
  8. Here is a link to Coaster info. USFWS Coaster DNA study USFWS Coaster info Good to hear that something is finally being done to restore this once world class fishery.
  9. Chosenvalley, man what a pig! S.E. MN trout? Stream/lake? I've pulled out a few rainbows that size in lakes, but nothing even close to that in a stream.
  10. Trout in lakes are like every other fish in lakes. They will relate to structure like panfish and walleye and there will be key times of the day to fish for them as well. Weather like cloudy days and storms also play a role in the bite. The big difference with trout is that many of the lakes they are stocked in are very sterile, so they don't have a wide range of food to pick from. In one lake they may be relating to rocky areas where they find crayfish to eat, in another lake they may relate to sunken timber looking for snails and still in other lakes they maybe looking for minnows which they often cruse weed beds and shore lines while in search of them. I've even seen them push minnows to the surface then dart in to the school. Sometimes this even happens along the shore while they are in only foot or less of water. A good way to figure out what they are eating is to check the stomachs of any trout you keep. Stocking also plays a role. Lakes that are stocked every year with a high number of trout often have the best fishing. Lakes with less trout stocked often have slower fishing.
  11. Brown trout, no less the 28 inches for me. Rainbow would be the same. Brook trout would have to be 20 inches or better. Trout that size are trophies anywhere they are found, and all three of that size can be caught in MN. I'm with Black Dog. No reason to kill a trout that big, since you can now get a fiberglass mount of the fish.
  12. Mjhowe, what kind of fishing can you find in the Flathead river, just above the lake, right now? I'm going to be in that area for a few days and was wandering if the Flathead river would be any good then.

    We'll this ones not quite 26 inches, but it's close. Hope this helps you guys sleep better. No this one was not caught out of the same creek your thinking of Troutman, but it was caught out of S.E. minnesota. This one was released right after the pic. was taken.
