Try the Trout Fourum. If you look through some old posts, I'm sure you'll find some helpful info.

It just seems like all the decent Metro trout waters are over fished. Courthouse Pond in Chanhassen apparently have 150 portables on it at the minute winter trout season started. Its nice to know you can get 150 houses on 10 acres. Someone else told me there were over 500 people. I was out there the day after opener and you couldnt go 10 feet with out find a group of holes.

My best recommendation for winter trout head for Grand Marais and check in at Buck's Hardware or the Beaver House.

Cenaiko in the coon rapids dam park is the same way on trout opener. its an 11 acre lake and there were atleast 100 portables out there. tried the lake twice in the past few weeks. nothin, and only one or two portables out there.

Watched a fishing show on trout fishing this morning.these guys were catching 8 to 10 plus pounders like you would catch perch on your favorite perch pond. 10 pounders are a average with 20 plus possable. the fish were mostly browns with some steelhead. i just did a little research on that area and found out why. theres warmer water and some plant discharge in this harbor that keep lots of shad and other bait fish in there so these big trout just hang in there and eat all winter long. its the Milwaukee harbor on lake MI in WI. About the same distance as the boundry waters or Ely from the twin cities. IM SOLD plent of shore or pier fishing spots.ice fishing an boat

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
