Hey all,

Yes, this is very early, but what the heck!

Just so you can get it on your calender, my 3rd Annual Trout Day will be held on April 26th at Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park in SE MN.

If your coming from a ways out, might want to call and make reservations for a camping spot!
Agenda and more details to come!!!!!

PS> for those of you who attended last years event I am looking for an evaluation. What can I add, change or omit???(other than the weather!LOL)

Merry Christmas!

Any updates as to what your goin to have at Trout Days?

As the winter season for stream trout lakes is comes to a end, and I'm starting to think more and more about fishing my favorite trout streams.

Hey Rennenberg,
For sure there will be at least two seminars one on fly-fishing and one on spin fishing.
Haven't heard back from the boys down at the Lanesboro fisheries office yet.

I would like to create an impromptu hour or two of actual fishing into the day if we run dry of DNR assistance etc. MINN AQUA can't committ until a lot later, in response to the current state funding situation.

If there any ideas for topics or agenda items people would like to see, I am all ears(I guess eyes for the internet eh?).

There will be enough to do to keep everyone entertained until the door prizes are handed out at the end of the day.
(Need to be in attendance to win any prize)

Thanks for asking! Been busy with my other job and a newborn, so a little behind right now.

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

Rennenberg and all,

Just got off the phone with the Lanesboro fisheries people! A tradition of Trout Day has been the electro-fishing demonstration.
They have committed again for tis years event!!
Along with the demo they are lanning providing a biological perspective on trout.
So bring the questions people!

smellzalilfishee,

I'm glad you asked that. This year Steve K. from the Lanesboro office suggested we move this years demonstration to a new localle.

THe area we tried the first couple years was a matter of convenience, thus a section of stream not well suited for larger fish. However, fish were gathered and the demonstration successsful.

SO this year we will be either hoofing it or driving a tad to a better stretch of stream, hoping for larger trout!!

I was blessed with a new girl. I now have one of each. Couldn't feel any bettter about that!!

Look forward to meeting ya!!!

If I am busy that day, who cares, make sure you pull me aside for some fishing talk!!!!

I am pleased to announce that Kathy Beaulieu from the DNR's MINN AQUA will be presenting again at this years Trout Day.

Her program is geared toward educating our youth in outdoor related topics.
SHe teaches a broad range of topics, so part of my job will be to pick a couple.(yet to be determined).

So yes, as always, Kids are welcome at Trout Day! Most of the educational materials will be for children from grade 3 on up! However, if you want to bring younger feel free!!!

For those who attended last year, did you like tying flies? That is an option, not sure yet.

See ya all on the 26th of APril

Keep the rods bendin'!!!!

Cherndog,

Are you referring to camping in the park? Head to the DNR HSOforum, go to State Parks, then click on Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park.

Otherwise, no registration is needed to attend Trout Day. Just show up!

See ya there!!!!

    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • 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!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
