Hello all.

I have not posted on this side of the forum yet.

My name's Eric, from Mpls. I am an avid flyfisherman who just began regularly fishing "conventional" tackle this year to broaden my spectrum and to really explore multi species fishing.

The idea is to find fish I know little or nothing about with lures or bait, then be able to tie appropriate flys and figure out how to get them to the right place.

I Dug out my vice this weekend and re-organised my work room in prep for a winter of rod building and repair and realised my flyrods did not get as much of a work out this summer as usual, especially my lighter line rods (3wt, 2wt).

Still plenty time yet to get them wet.

What are you all fishing for right now?

What are you all tying right now?

Welcome aboard, Eric!

I haven't been out much or tying at all lately, but hope to find a little time to trout fish before the season's over, then a smallmouth outing or two is in store for October.

I've been fishing steelhead and browns and have been tying x legs, soft hackle nymphs, stones, and bunny leeches. My buddies just went out to denver and then are heading to the keys for some flats fishing. I've got to do everything to keep my mind off the fact I wasn't able to go with! tongue.gif

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
