Fly fishing conditions and guide?

10 posts in this topic

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.
