      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had 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. 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 fishing reports  around your area, I would 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.

Am curious about it though...

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.

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.
