Thanks Harvey! I live right next to the park and have been on the waiting list for the past two years... needless to say I've spent alot of hours scouting this park out and think I've found two extremely good locations. Now I just need to beat the other 180 hunters to the area. grin.gif

P.S. I saw a ten point buck two days ago on the border of the park, heading back towards it and it's in the area I'm hunting so hopefully he will cross my path.

He wasn't. frown.gif I did however stop at the park station headquarters and they had registered 6 deer... a 9 pt, 8 pt and 6 pt and the rest were does. One person reported seeing a monster P & Y type buck, but it didn't even get close to him. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

I'm hunting the Cleary Lake hunt not too far away. We only have 55 permits in this park, but its lots smaller.

I only saw 1 buck today. Long story short I made a poor shot and hit high. After over 3hrs of exhaustive searching This deer lived or made it more than 500yds without bedding down and left the property. I finally found my arrow 100yds after I lost he blood trail. STarted searching again and completely grid searched the area he was heading and still found no more blood. I'm extrememly disapointed, but we'll try again tomorrow.

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
