Does MN ever tell us which streams get stocked?

Recommended Posts

when I lived in Iowa the DNR had a calendar on their "internets" with the exact dates and locations of nearly all the stockings they did all year

I looked for any similar info on the MN DNR site and couldn't find anything

specifically what I'm looking for is simply whether some of the near-metro streams they list as "Fishable Trout Streams" and "Catch and Release for All Trout" actually ever get stocked

don't need to know the exact dates of course, but it would be nice to have a general idea before I try to hunt them up

thanks in advance for any info

I googled mn dnr trout stocking report and got this that might be of interest.

(I don't think MN does much put and take type stocking)

http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2013&county=&species=RBT|BKT|BNT|SPT|LAT

For example, here is Dakota county...

Quote:
Dakota County

Holland - 19006500

Rainbow Trout - 500 yearlings weighing 267.0 lbs.

Brown Trout - 323 adults weighing 782.0 lbs.

Vermillion River

Rainbow Trout - 2,000 yearlings weighing 875.0 lbs.

and Washington Co

Quote:
Washington County

Brown's Creek

Brown Trout - 1,000 yearlings weighing 222.0 lbs.

Elmo - 82010600

Rainbow Trout - 4,200 yearlings weighing 2,322.0 lbs.

Rainbow Trout - 140 adults weighing 1,120.0 lbs.

I don't know if the 2014 version is out yet... (actually a search of lakefinder data) (no data for 2014)

You can go to lakefinder and enter the body of water you are interested in.

As you can see typically they stock stuff that is too small to catch and keep immediately.

I just moved back to MN from Iowa and the trout stocking calendar is the only thing I disliked about trout fishing in Iowa. I would plan my outings for as far away from that days stocking events as possible.

thanks for the info delcechi- I'm still a bit confused though- if there's no mention of any stocking in these little feeder creeks going in the MN River, how in the heck would they have trout in them?

and Mitch, yeh I avoided the stocking days, too, but I sure wasn't complaining about how often they stocked my favorite stream all season- at least twice a week!

Most of the trout streams in SE MN support naturally reproducing trout populations.

Cool! I was wondering if that's the case. I'll have to check some of them out this spring- very close to where I live!

There is a book, used to be a map,and an online thing from the DNR, "Trout streams of SE MN".

You can fish now, C&R season is open.

Hope this is of some interest. Get the fly rod out. (flies seem to work really well, especially in some of the smaller streams.)

    • We were on Kinn's boats out of Algoma.  
    • A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you. 
    • It was slow for us this year, steelhead on Sunday afternoon, and only a couple nice kings on Monday. But the potential for a big fish is there again this year.   My friend is a little on the small side, always makes nice fish look HUGE.   My early morning fish came in at 23.6 lbs. A pound and a half heavier than the top pic.      
    • Nice work, that looks incredible. And I'm a big fan of the grey motif.   Thanks for the show and write up.
    • Yeah we brought it up to our cabin and sleep in it if there are a bunch of people up there. Thanks!
    • Are you guys using it as a summer camper as well?  Super Product right there!  😎
    • Thanks! It weighed in over what I thought which was disappointing. It was right around 7000 lbs with full propane tanks and some other stuff in it. We actually weighed it just after getting spray foamed and it was already at like 5000 lbs I’m not sure how others that did the same style steel stud house have a finished weight around 5500 lbs.    The cost in materials was above 20K but below 25 still too scared to finish adding the receipts. We really tried to use the best materials we could find and not cut any corners. When I was pricing stuff out before we started my ballpark was 19K but I forgot to add a tv screws wire and little stuff like that.    Yeah it took a lot of time but I enjoyed it for the most part. I’m actually getting kind of bored now and don’t know what to do with all the free time. 
    • Thanks for taking the time to do a write up and post all the pics! That alone is a big undertaking in itself. Nice work.   any idea what finished weight is for the entire house?    And just a ballpark figure are you willing to share what it costs in material to build something like this?   I can’t imagine how many hours of your own labor you got into this build. I think it turned out amazing.
    • Alright here’s the finished product. I think it turned out pretty nice. Still need a stove/ range but working on it.    Underneath the lift bed there are 7 lights and two speakers. There are 4 lights above the lift bed. The 3 middle lights underneath are on one button the outer 4 are on a different button and above are on a separate button.  55” smart tv recessed into to wall. The speakers really kick out some sound in this thing though. The tv sound comes out of the 5 speakers in the house which are all ran through the stereo and an amp.      Hole lights  Single light above the stove area  This door is for the satellite receiver. The black center piece is tinted acrylic so you can still use the remote with the door shut. The hole just below the tv is also so you can use the tv remote.  Battery monitor  Supply and return water temperatures for the in floor heat. I was actually really surprised I got my 20 degree delta t I calculated for.  Lights above lift bed. Lift bed in lowest position. Could go lower but that’s just where we put the lowest at.  Different height if people are sleeping below.  Folding table.  These are the cabinets inside the bathroom wall. These are only about 9” deep but I think they will be deep enough for a little more storage. The converter is in here as well it is just above the wiring panel. And the large center square is a false front so you can access the tv wires. I think we are going to go with the dry flush toilet. I put a little 12 v outlet in there so it can br ran off the house batteries.     The only other thing I did that i don’t know if others have done is I wired the rear porch light to the reverse wire of the trailer plug. So when you put the truck in revers that porch light comes on and lights everything up.    I think that’s everything. Feel free to ask any questions if you have any. And thanks again to lipripper and others for posting their builds the information was a ton of help and sorry if I copied too much of your design.
