fishing report for SE Minnesota?

3 posts in this topic

I'm from the Kansas City area and I'm thinking about heading up to SE MN this weekend for some trout fishing. I was up there in August a couple of years ago and had great luck on a number of the streams like Trout Run, Rush, Mill, etc.

I was just wondering if someone could help me out with a current fishing report in the area. It's about a seven hour drive so I hate to make it if conditions aren't great. In three hours I can be in the Ozarks where fishing has been fairly good.

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to HotSpotOutdoors /

Here's a report from last weekend. Cold Water Troutin

Somebody will chime in with some better details on stream conditions, temps, hatches, etc.

Hey Moe!

The streams are in great shape. A bit stained with recent rains, but good nonetheless since there wasn't an excess of rain this summer. Water temperatures on the streams you mentioned are in the upper 50s and will be about the same this weekend. There is a decent chance for more rain in the area Friday evening through Saturday, but Sunday will be sunny. High temperatures Friday through Sunday will be in the middle 70s.

Grasshoppers are all over the meadows and pastures. smile.gif

Terrestrial patterns (hoppers, ants, crickets, madame x) are tons of fun this time of year and your typical nymph patterns like PTs, Princes, and scuds are producing too.

Bring your raingear in case you get caught in some downpours Saturday, but overall things are looking good.

Good luck!

      I use fatheads year round.  Easy to get and stay alive for quite a while.

      not the best if you want to move around a lot.  it's ok to drag it set up but a bugger if windy. if moving far not that tough to pop down and pop back up. when i fished in wind I used the vehicle as a block and that helped. also used the ropes with tie down screws when needed. but I tied nice ropes onto the hubs that were easy to work with.  I never used the bag till storing time in the spring. I just collapsed mine and used a few bungee cords to hold it together, much easier. good luck and have fun!

      Do you find the pop up style easy to set up and take down if you want to move around a lot?  Do you have to use ice anchors most of the time?  Thanks for the reply.

      We bought a Eskimo 949i a couple seasons ago & like that. Got a good deal at L & M year end clearance for $259. Biggest complaint I've heard on them is people trying to get them back in the travel bag out on the ice. We wait until we get back to the garage so it can warm up & dry out some.

      Looking forward to seeing everyone up there again! Rengel thinks he is going to reclaim the Nord Lord trophy again
