Report and question!

Recommended Posts

Opening day in SE MN was reported as good to slow, by trout anglers!

Streams like, the South Branch of the Root River, and the South Branch of Whitewater river, flowed very nicely, with moderate to minimal cloudiness.

Sarge and Myself fished nondesiganted waters. Water that probably pushed the "fishable" envelope, managing only a couple fish. However, we found ourselves on a small feeder that was gin clear, immediately catching!

Water temp was 52 in the first stream and considerably colder(no reading sorry) in the clear feeder.

Thunderstorms predicted for Tuesday. This could have both adverse and positive effects on conditions of the streams and rivers in SE MN, pending on amount of rain received and just exactly where it falls.

I recommend keeping tabs on several different streams and rivers while your out, allowing for a choice if inundation occurs.
Reason being, stream A could get flooded out, but Stream C only 15-20 minutes away, flows like the sky above!!!

NOW TO MY QUESTION!!!!


ANy of you Duluth area trout fisherman care to trade a day on a stream up yonder for a day down here???? Let me know!!!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

Jim W, I've got a proposition for you. I know of a stream you probably havn't fished that is a nondesignated trout stream. It's not in duluth, it's in SE minnesota and recieves very little fishing pressure. There have been reports (from a very reliable source) of some very nice trout coming out of there. I would be willing to do some sort of trade if your interested. If your interested email me.

Jim W., I just thought of another stream you might be interested in. It's Gilbert creek in wabash county. Yes, I know you have probably fished it before, but not the section I'm thinking of it's on some private land and I just happen to know the owners, well sort of, I went to school with their kids and they would probably let me fish it. Anyhow about seven years ago one of their kids cuaght a brown out of there that was about 2lbs. or better. I am willing to bet you that there are more where that one came from. Well it's just a thought. Let me know what you think.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • Wow, I didn’t realize the lake was under that intense of pressure. I suppose I will try elsewhere if most of the trout have been taken out. Thanks for the advice! 
    • ...LOL, I did it again on Sunday as well. I used 21-40 ct shrimp and grilled up some chicken breast ahead of time that were added before the pan went on the grill.... pretty spot on!
    • Thanks for coming back with a review. They look like they should work well but I'm wondering if they allow slack in the line at the trip and let the fish off the hook?  I use dipsy's and a few other divers for deep trolling Walleye's in late summer.  Fun stuff when their out there. 🙂
    • All the little Trout ponds around the cities get hit like this on opener. More or less a "Put and take" fishery.  
    • Wow that is some high density fishing pressure!!!
    • This is a couple years old but I happened to stumble on it again today and I’m not really a big fan of the slide divers myself after giving them a shot. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but they seem more of a hassle than just the plain old, but effective, Dipsy diver     
    • Like he said. After opening weekend there may be few fish left.  Here's a little view why! 😉        
    • Welcome to the forums.   There is another company here in Minnesota that gets used a lot called Mattracks that you may want to look up. What size motor do you have? It takes a pretty good size motor to turn these tracks and get any speed out of them.   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjohMjdlYbjAhWPGM0KHSFVAFoQFjAAegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mattracks.co%2F&usg=AOvVaw0l1s0-KJl2XMVmGU069TQt  
    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
