Anyone been out winter Season Trout (Fly/Spins)???

Recommended Posts

Hey has anyone been out around SE minn on any streams fishing spinns or Fly for trout lately?? Just wondering if there is any advice on where a guy might want to hit up this weekend?? I have been to South Fork of Root River and didn't have much luck there although I spotted some there. So just curious what anyone has to say about their luck lately. Let me know if anyone is going out this weekend. Thanks

Fished a section of the Whitewater last weekend and caught 5-6 small fish on PT's and one decent on a midge trailer (13"s).

First time winter fly fishing, had a really good time.

I might try Saturday.

Hey Heavy,

Welcome to FM! Fishing's been good from what I hear. I've only been out once and that was on the opener. This weekend will be frigid, so dress warmly. The trout will be sluggish with the big drop in air temperature and subsequent drop in water temperature, but any opportunity to fish is an opportunity to fish if you're up for it. smile.gif

Thanks both of you for your reply's I wish I could have gone out there this afternoon, it is awesome out for some Troutin' yeah I heard it was going to be cold so that might be a little bit of an issue but I think i might venture out even though. Does Forrestville sound good to anyone at all?? or any other ideas of places to venture out to.

Thanks

Went out with the dogs for a walk around the Root river area and scouted around a bit, didn't fish too much just took our two goldens for a walk and got the line wet on Sat for about 30 mins caught three browns about 10-13inches respectively. On Sunday I again took the boys and things were pretty much fozen up where I was planning on going so I didn't do much again, but did have some more luck with some browns, much smaller that day though. It was overall fun and cold, the dogs loved it. cool.gif

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
