What to Do? Where to Go?

Recommended Posts

I am currently living in Rochester going to college and I have recently gotten into Fly-Fishing. This spring I will graduate and move home for the summer until I move to Mankato for some more school...He Ha. My home is just west of the Twin Cities near Delano and Buffalo. I am wondering if there are any streams or rivers near by where I can fish for trout. I want to show my dad and brother a good time and what this sport is all about. I would be willing to drive an hour or two. Any Suggestions?

Look in the wisconsin trout fishing regs book. In there is a map of the state and there are a ton of trout streams in western wisconsin.

Two of the best are the Kinni and the Rush river.

Give me an e-mail or phone call @ 952 881 5758 after April 5th and I could show you around White Water sometime.
When I first got started flyfishing a total stranger offered to show me how to catch fish on a fly rod. I'd be happy to return the favor to a total stranger. I live in Bloomington and the drive to WhiteWater is 90 miles an easy 90min drive.

Oh I almost forgot. If you're going to school in Rochester drive down to Chatfield and head on out to Bucksnort. Ask in town or check the map. There is an old dam there with a nice deep pool and for about a 1/2 mile below the dam there are some good pools. Call the DNR and ask for there Access to Trout Streams map then buy a
Delorme Map of MN and you'll have all the tools to explore the miles of trout streams in MN. My offer still stands BTW.

Jim will have lots of those S.E. Minnesota Trout Streams maps, the dnr puts out, at Trout Day.

Those maps are very nice to have.

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
