Hello all,


Trout day will be held at Forestville State Park on the 28th of April(rain or shine, or snow for that matter).

{THIS EVENT IS FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY, SO BRING YOUR KIDS OR THE NEIGHBORS!}

If you would like to, bring a grill for some BBQ-ing. Things will be starting around 9:00am in the picnic shelter and run to
"at least" 3:00pm. This pavilion has both open air and indoor facilities.

There will be door prizes provided by area sporting goods/bait stores!
At 10:00 am, The Field Editor for Midwest Flyfishing will be available for 2 hours of question and answers or BS.

Rick plans on coming down as well. There are a few details yet to come(additional presentations etc.) Plan on a day of fishing, fellowship, education and plain old fun!!! I sure would like to meet other fisherman and talk about our wonderful opportunities in SE MN!!!!

PS. I will be providing an update soon! Look forward to seeing all of you there!!

That sounds like fun, I grew up on trout fishing in N.E. Iowa, and love it. I fished trout when I lived in Colorado, but since I moved to Minn. I have just been fishing lakes. I think it's time to get back to trout fishing.!!!

Latest update:

Turk from Croixsippi guiding services has graciously donated a half-day guided fishing trip on the ST.Croix river! Turk is a Croix river rat who understands the ST.Croix and it's fish! He can help you target your favorite species!! Check out his site at Croixsippi.com!!!
Whom ever wins this prize will definitely be in for a fishing treat of a life-time!

If you have'nt heard, trout opener looks real ugly right about now! This only tells me that the 28th would be your best bet to get some real fishing in! SO why not stop down at Forestville state park for Trout Day?! See you there! Jim W

PS. Just received word from the "Gullguide". He is donating a halfday guided trout fishing trip on the Cuyuna Mine pits near Crosby, MN as a door prize for Trout Day! Thanks Tom!!!!!!!

The guy from Red Barn Rods won't be able to make it tomorrow for Trout Day. Earlier on another thread there was some talk he might be down.
However I will have a few assorted rods from him available for sale, as well as brochures and a price list for the taking.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!
    • Pat McGraw
      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff
    • Draht
      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?  
    • Wanderer
      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again 
    • JerkinLips
      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff
    • leech~~
      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
