Best of luck to all heading out this weekend for the Trout Season Opener!

Safe travels and great fishing to all!

Be ready for a little rain and comfortable temperatures down here in SE MN.

There should be some active insect hatches so be sure to have some BWO's, Midges, and even a few Caddis dries on hand for some surface action if the hatch pans out.

Thanks for the well wishes. How did things go down there? I won't make it to the driftless country until Trout Day.

Were they snappin'?

Hay Creek was fun Saturday, not many people on it though. When I switched to a nymph I started getting bites and the trout came out to play, especially when it started drizzling.

Overall it was a good weekend. There was a decent BWO hatch on Saturday afternoon amidst the clouds and rain. I got out for a couple hours Sunday and caught a few fish.

The next few weeks should hold some awesome fishing.

Thanks for the reports. After slinging lead at chromers all weekend I'm yearning for a chance to gently cast dry flies over rising trout.

Wx Guy, will you be at Trout Day? I'm getting pretty excited for a stream trout expedition.

Anybody else?

I've got a previous commitment that Saturday, so I won't be able to make Trout Day. It looks like you should have quite the turn out there, though.

Too bad. I'm not sure that we've had a chance to meet. Maybe next time...Anybody else thinking about Trout Day?

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
