Yikes!!! Those snappers always make ya a little uneasy to step foot in the same area the next time. I dicovered one of those "logs" on the Trimbelle awhile back. What stream were you on?

That's a weird coincidence that you posted that, i had the exact same thing happen while night fishing on the brule this week. After about 4 or 5 strips after casting out a zoo cougar fly it felt like i snagged a rock and then i felt it start shaking. I didn't know what to think, so i flipped on my headlight and watched the snapper drift down towards the guy i was fishing with......with my fly in it's mouth! I put some pressure on and luckily the hook popped out, you can bet that porter wasn't happy with me for swing that snapper in his direction! grin.gif

it's been slow, but a few nice fish have been coming to net every once in a while. hopefully with the weather cooling down a bit things will pick up.

What kinds of things spark the fall run of fish? Do browns move into the streams sooner than the salmon and 'bows?

Browns can tollerate much warmer water than bows and salmon and in the brule they start trickeling in around the end of july or early august. I haven't seen many lake runs at all yet this year. the water is still too low and warm, i've been after the nice residents that the river holds. Water levels and temps are what trigger all lake run fish, it's just that browns can handle a little warmer water.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.
