Trout Run-- North Shore Area Tributaries q's

Recommended Posts

On the last week in may/ first week of June; me and a couple buddies are planning a camping trip on the North Shore at Pallisade head or Gooseberry Falls. I told the one organizing the trip that I want to fish as my primary reason for going, and I want to catch something that would taste good on the grill.

I know that the trout usually only enter these streams when they make runs in the spring and early fall-- I tried going Trout fishing in November a few years ago in said streams-- and caught nothing-- the only trout I even saw were under a bridge in a DNR sanctioned habitat-- no fishing ;(. The rest of the streams were completly deserted-- not even some small brook trout.

I don't have a large enough boat to tackle Superior-- so that's out of the question.

My question is this-- will there be trout (enough to be almost guarnteed to catch something..) this late in the year in the streams? Or should I try to convince him to go to Branierd so I can fish for something else on the Mississippi instead?

Your a little to late for steelhead fishing. But you should have no problem catching brook trout. The key to catching brook trout up there is to get way off the road. Brook trout are easy to catch with crawlers and are cleaned out quickly near roads or places that are easy to access.

    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
