      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 .

olmstead county is one of 2 counties in the state that do not have a natural lake. there are some dammed up spots and some runoff ponds, but a lot of those ponds require private permission to fish.

There are some lakes around Rochester one of the better lakes is Lake Zumbro for panfish and catfish. Foster Arends pond is on the North side of Rochester and is stocked with trout. You can go to the DNR website to find out more about the bodies of water in Olmsted county.

I agree with Duncan7709. Just got back from taking my 4 yr old son out ice fishing at Foster Arends Pond. There are 4 reservoirs that are pretty good on for fishing and there is another man-mad lake near Hwy 52 and Hwy 14 interection that will be finished up in 2009.

Not to mention you will be 1/2 hr away from some really good trout streams and about 1 hr away from Miss River.

Definately take Duncan7709 advice and check out the DNR website for all available fishing water.

As everybody mentioned, there are several smaller flood control reseviors in and around town that are stocked with fish. Panfish and bass mainly. Lake Zumbro and Chester Woods are larger lakes that provide excellent fishing for panfish, bass, and catfish.

Don't forget about the Mississippi River - Pool 4, which is only 24 minutes away from Rochester which has many species of fish.

In addition to what everyone else has mentioned, there is also the Zumbro River running through the heart of town, but that is mostly open and fished in the summer time.

Did anyone mention Siver Lake?
