I've seen a few thousand, but that was only one short trip to visit a sick pal. I would guess they would be around in huntable numbers by the time the season opens at the end of the month. Oh. Thats right. There is an early season too isn't there. Okay. Whatever. confused.gif

Haven't been thru recentley but a couple of weekes ago, the farther West & North you went the more geese there were. that was in direct relation to the number of wheat fields though. Down here there are few wheat fields but lots of corn, hopefully later in the year we are going to spank them.

Good numbers around Fergus and Underwood. Some fields have large amounts, but they tend to still be scatterd in isolated family groups. I am guessing by noon Saturday most of them will educated.

The ones in grain stubble really stick out of course, but I have seen a lot feeding on plowed ground too.

      That sounds encouraging. Did you notice all the dead carp on shore? I wonder what's up with that, a virus or something maybe?

      I've never trout fished in MN and was hoping to get some help as a newcomer to the state. I know there are a lot of streams but I've also read that DNR info on them is often out of date and I dont want to drive an hour or more to a desolate stream.    Most seem to either have only browns or only small brooks. I really am after some medium size, 12 to 14 inches, rainbow trout for the smoker so I definitely will release any big browns if I catch one.    I've got waders and a kayak and am willing to do what is necessary to get to good, less pressured water.    Bonus offer, I have 2 very stable fishing kayaks, you can stand up in them, and would be more than happy to let you use one if you wanted to organize a float down river in exchange for showing me a decent spot to get some rainbows. Any takers or advice?    Edit - I live in Andover and would prefer to keep the drive below an hour and a half unless it's a well worth while stretch of water.

      That's a really neat boat

      Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

      Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately.
