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.

Try Sqare Lake they are bitin out there, and you don't have to go to far from the access, you do have to buy a park sticker.

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

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
