Heyoo,
I did some catch and release on the South Branch last Sunday and it was perfect! However, make sure that where you fish is part of the pre-season barbless, catch and release. Goodluck and let us know how you did? (keep in mind trout day on the 28th of APril at forestville state park) Jim W

HI JIMW,

IF I'M READING IT RIGHT, THE C&R/BARBLESS INCLUDES FROM THE DAM IN LANESBOROUGH DOWN TO THE CONFLUENCE WITH THE NORTH BRANCH JUST EAST OF TOWN? ALSO CAMP CREEK IN PRESTON.............DOES THAT INCLUDE THE MOUTH TO THE ROOT? IF NOTHING ELSE I NEED TO JUST GO THERE SOON! MAYBE HELP TIM START GETTING THE CAMPGROUND READY.

DArk30,
You can fish the South Branch in the State Park as well(forestville) up from "old Forestville" bridge, with in the park. If it states camp creek, you can fish it all of the way to where it dumps into the SOuth Branch. As soon as you step foot on the banks of the South branch your no longer legal. Have a good time, look forward to meeting you and the rest of the guys from this area on the 28th!!! Keep the rods bendin'!!! Jim W

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
