      Minnesota Fishing Report Clubs - ONLY 20 FREE MEMBERSHIPS Per Area - Join Today - FREE   03/08/2018

      Fishing Minnesota has added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. Initially we are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20 members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then Join Now! Some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

I fished it once several years ago because it was listed as a designated trout stream on my trout map from the 60's. I was hoping to find some secret treasure since it wasn't listed on the more recent trout maps. I fished it all the way from hwy 52 to where it meets the north branch of the root. There were very few decent spots for holding trout and I didn't catch any. I also poked sticks under banks and rocks etc to see if I could scare one out, but I never saw one either.

I had noticed that it was listed as a trout stream in the newest books also. I figured the DNR must have wanted to have more protection for that watershed.

yes i have fished it as well and the action was awesome on chubs. i couln't keep them off of my nymph. i believe that the name of the Creek is Kinney and i was told by a local that one man tried once for many years to manage it for trout and by the sounds of it his efforts were futal. I fished it from the spot it dumps into the Root and up stream about 4 miles of stream about 2 miles of road. and didn't even see a trout. The water was very clear and i could see to the bottom everywhere and i was very stealthy in my approach just hoping to see a trout. None were seen. i was hoping for the treasure as well, but none was found. Good luck to all those who venture and some excellent chub action. ike

Vearl Predmore used to go to my families church before he passed, he know we trout fished and talked of a time there were trout there. IN the 80's you could catch a trout or two where it dumps into the Root, but last time I was there the area had completely filled in with silt.

      I haven't fished up there for a couple of years but the first time i fished it was about fifteen years ago and we were on moccasin. We did pretty well caught lots of sunfish but size was nothing special. Crappies were decent with a couple large ones. Since then i have gone back maybe three times and caught more large mouth bass than anything.

      Makes sense. I live in northern Minnesota so most of our lakes don't seem to require much stocking other than old mine pits. I'm not familiar with the southern half.

      I picked up new rain gear last year.  I took a layering approach and went with Gill. I love the stuff and can more comfortably wear it in warmer climates.   jacket - bibs - bib& insul bib -

      Like stocking walleyes into every mudhole in the state? Yes, I'm exaggerating, but if walleye stocking were ended, lots of lakes would eventually be walleye-free. Stocking fish in Minnesota (walleyes, trout and muskie for the most part) is done to boost tourism and all the various industries associated with tourism. That includes resorts, bait shops, restaurants, boat manufacturers and retailers, tackle manufacturer and retailers, clothing manufacturers and retailers, guides, advertising, publishers, websites and probably others I haven't thought of. It's a big part of the economy, and the popularity of muskie fishing is booming. The state should promote and support muskie fishing just like walleye fishing for the same reasons. No, I'm not a muskie fisherman. I own a few muskie baits and occasionally fling them around, but not seriously. I'm too old and my shoulders are too lame to do that very long. I've caught maybe 6 muskies in the last 15 years, and most of them were caught bass fishing.

      I need to pick up 1 or 2 Muskie combos by June but haven’t fully decided what I want. Other than that, I’m taking it easy. My checking account is still feeling the effects Black Friday 2017.
