I've been out several times this year, and now with the water temps coming up the fishing will just get better. That area of the south fork is really beautiful, were all your fish browners?

Yup, this has to be one of my favorite streams, shear beauty!!! However, it has really taken a hit over the last few years, gaining in popularity. So I don't get on her as much.

Thanks for the repo!!

Don;t forget Trout DAy april 26th!

I just heard that there was 42,000 gallons of raw sewage that spilt into the root river, please tell me that this is not true. the root river is one of my best trout fishin' streams in the state.

It's no good where ever it gets dumped. However, it was dumped into the North Branch of the Root River, mostly smallmouth fishing, not the South Branch, mostly Trout fishing.
Granted the waters eventually connect, but I highly doubt it would travel back upstream.

So you shouldn;t have much to woorry about.
Unless that is, it seeps underground a ways and finds a way into one of the feeding caves/underground springs!?

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

thanks jim, but it still sucks when any good smallmouth stream gets infested.

    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
    • same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.   my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
    • It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out.                                                My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though. 
    • Nancy, Welcome to the forum.   Thanks for the update. A lot of things can change in the last 10 years! 
    • June 2019 According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
    • I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out.  Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.   I had one run square into the side of my car.  Never saw it.  I thought I got sideswiped by car.  It rocked my car pretty good.  Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.    
    • Deer jumps out into the 4lane roadway at night, good luck with that speedy reaction time.      Don't over react and put it into oncoming traffic or the ditch.
    • Although I agree,  a higher deer population comes with more collisions.  Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.  Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.  
    • That part of 94 to Monti is bad for road kills! 🙁
