Here is a few pics of some Brownies I caught with my fiance on the 4th of July. Mind you these are only 3 that I took pics of. It was an excellent day! Between the two of us I'm guessing it was easily 30+ day!!cool.gif Most were in the 15" to 16" range. All fish were released, this stream is starting to produce some real monsters, none that will be shown in these photos, but had them on and snapped my line!! shocked.gif Thanks to the regulations that have been placed on this stream it just keeps getting better every year!

I would love to disclose this information, but it is a real jem of a place and would hate for it to be ruined. Sorry. I will say it is a Fillmore County stream though.

Awesome fish, Chris.

I've been catching more bigger fish as well in a few streams. This is good news.

It's good to keep those honey holes under your hat, at least when it comes to putting out that info to a wide audience. wink.gif

I agree with you guys I would never give my spot away because I have seen spots go bad just by showing one person it. I will tell you it is down in Forestville. Yes in the park west side of the park good luck findinig it. Hint. Get off the path and walk and walk and walk about a mile and a half out. You need get off the path. Just like getting a big buck go deep in the woods where nobody else will.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.

      Great review Rick G! I've always been all for Gas augers but it seems seems electric is better than I think it is. I could defiantly see myself making the move in the near future.
