      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Had great luck wading for smallies. Caught about 50. Biggest going 19 inches. Also caught a brown trout that taped out at 20. All fish released... Location southeast of Roshester on county road 20 one bridge west of Fugels Mill. Wade down about 100 yards west of the bridge and you will get some deeper water with a cold feeder stream coming in. Good spot to take the kids with easy wading and easy fishing. Have fun!!! smile.gif

Sounds like fun. Nice fish. Dandy fish.

Big smallies and big trout. What's better than that?

There are also some huge carp in there for the taking. Have to go up or down stream a ways, but they are plentiful and GIANT! Did I mention there are some true trophy smallies in there? My personal best is 21 inches that came last fall. I had several break offs today that felt like dandies. One of them I caught later and got my lure back! From now till winter it will only get better. grin.gif

I am heading out there sometime this weekend. Is the bridge your talking about just North of County Road 120 on County Road 20? Also, I was wondering if you were using live bait or if not, what type of lures were you using and colors? I am going with a buddy and we usually don't have much luck...it would be nice to catch some fish, take a few pics, and then release them.

confused a little on your directions as county 20 goes into 16 and simpson.Is it right toward the golf course after simpson?County 20 does'nt cross the river.Thought about going out toward marion and heading across to fugels mill then to the west,but thought I'd ask you first.

Ok...let me see if I can't confuse anyone else...CR20 goes East off of highway 63 (which is also St. Bridgets Rd SE). CR20 goes South for approx 2.5 miles and then goes East for about 1 mile where it meets up with CR16 going East into Simpson, it then continues to go South till CR20 meets up with highway 30 out of Stewartville. Flugels Mill is located on CR1. So, I am a bit confused where CR20 meets up with Flugels Mill. There is a bridge south of Flugels Mill that goes over the North Branch Root River...wondering if this is the part of the river that was mentioned in the beginning of the thread?

If you go through Simpson and keep going straight you are heading towards the bridge by fugels mill.. That is NOT the place. Take a right before you get to the bridge. Go one mile take a left. The bridge i was taking about is on that road. One mile west of Fugels Mill. It looked like county 20 on mapquest but i guess im wrong. Type in rochester mn on mapquest then zoom in around the Simpson area and you'll see the area.. Have fun.

There is no such thing as a "free spot" when it is on private land. Be sure to ask permission.

99% of the time they will give you access, unless they've had problems before. So I would ask that anyone stopping at any bridge, and planning to take a walk and not staying in the water the entire time, take the time to ask. Its easy, shows respect, and builds landowner/angler relations.

Now that I'm done preaching, Tims advice on slow moving plastics is very good, and its great to hear of trout that far upstream, with the warm summer, water temps have been up, and water cold enough to hold trout has been a problem in areas of moderate streams and rivers.

I myself stayed in the water the entire time so I dint bother getting permission. Like I said it's easy wading. Good reminder though.
