Can't make it on the ninth,but let me know how you do.The root is a big river with big browns,but finding them is like finding a needle in a haystack,unless your very familiar with what stretches produce and when.I found that in creeks that big fish are extremely territorial and easier to pinpoint,but in rivers they tend to roam because of a more abundance of food and fluctuating water temps.

Had pretty good success down in lanesboro today. Ended the day with 3 browns all about 11-13" 1 rainbow going about 11, and about 10 smallies ranging from about 4-13" and the one big guy that was hungry and fooled me thinking i had a nice brown ended up going about 16. All of these fish came from one little stretch in the river right outside of town.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
