Recommended Posts

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!!!!

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • 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? 🤷‍♂️
