      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Fly fishing conditions and guide?

Recommended Posts

Wish2Fish

Hi,

I'm going to be in Lanesboro with my wife Sunday-Tuesday, would like to fly fish if conditions are okay. Has the flooding shut down action this year, or is it still worth doing. Also, would love any recommendations for a fly-fishing guide in the area. Thanks.

Hi Jay, thanks for stopping by.

Conditions are just fine for fishing of any type around here, so that won't be a concern. You'll be surprised to see that most of SE MN is no different than it ever was before as the visibly destructive flood damage was confined to a relatively small area in comparison to all of southeast Minnesota.

Lanesboro and the streams around it are in good shape...you'll still see signs of the flood though.

As far as a guide goes, you'll have to a google search since there are no guides who are sponsors here. That shouldn't prove to be very difficult though... smile.gif

Good luck and good fishing!

Ike, we went out yesterday afternoon (Monday) around 4:00. My wife had never been fly fishing before, so I think it's a testament to our guide and the fishery that she landed 5 brown trout. I caught two, plus I gave about a dozen flies to the walnut trees. We had a great time. Our guide was terrific--a very patient and skilled instructor! I'd love to share his contact information with anyone who wants to fish the trout waters in SE Minnesota. I'd invite anyone to reach me by email.

Thanks!!

Jay

I think the flooding washed out/down a lot of the crap in the river. The few times I have been down it this fall it has been so clean and clear. I think the flooding actually had a positive effect to the river.

Glad you had success on your trip.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.
