enough rain?

Recommended Posts

Jim W, Did we get enough rain for you this time? It must have at least dirtied up some of the bigger streams like the root.

Has anyone looked at any of the streams? Is anything too dirty to fish?

Markp,

On my way into work I pass several streams and noticed a rise in a couple of them. Surprisingly, I expected to see chocolate this AM and did not. WIth all of the new growth, grass/weeds etc. and how dry it's been, a lot soaked right in. However, my drive home will be the tell-all!

Usually, my drive home is a bummer, allowing enough time for most run-off to reach the streams. Then I realize just how much longer it will be before I wade again!

If it doesn't cloudy or muddy too much the streams should really "light up" in a couple days.
Might want to tie on some large streamers Mark??

Too answer your question, not sure yet, but it gets my heart a poundin'!!
I'll let you know tomorrow at the latest.

markp and all,

As expected, over night a few streams that weren't real cloudy yesterday AM became chocolate over night! Not to fret, no real flooding by any means. Levels should begin falling today, opening up some real decent fishing by the weekend if not earlier.

Monday evening I drove Hwy. 74 through Whitewater and was very surprised to see it was running quite clear and at normal levels. It may have been a little cloudy in the park, but down below it looked clear.

Thanks Uffda!!

From what I've gathered SOuth and East of Rochester received more rain.

Any other stream condition reports?

SE MN or elsewhere?

Jim, I only have 2 wolly buggers in my fly box and they are the only streamers I have. I would hate to hit the streams with only 2 since I am almost guaranteed to lose 1 of them on a back cast sometime during the trip. That only leaves me with 1 to lose on snags and big trout.

I'll either have to hit the store and buy more or pull out the spinning rod, raps, and spinners. I've done that a few times the last couple years too. I haven't gotten to the point where I'm only willing to fish with a fly rod.
