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.

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
