North or south end

 Haven't been up yet this year just wondered where is the more consistent bite at the north end or the south end or everywhere in between

It's everywhere, as far as I can tell.  Can't go wrong this year.

I hit the reefs out from Garrison last time I was up and it was a little slow.  My buddy has a permi out of Lybecks on the south side and has been hauling in 27+ eyes for two weeks now.  I have also heard the north is on fire.  Like Stick in Mud said, not sure you can make a bad choice.  I'll be hitting the north side next time I go up.

The further away you can get from the crowds, the better, although there are not too many places that are that crowed right now, but it will get noisy over the weekend. There are a couple of options to get to the mud from the Garrison side, and around to the north toward Red Door, and Barnacles. There is still a great dawn and dusk bite inshore on the east side, but the further you can get out mid day the better.

 

Good Luck

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
