Anyone up-to-date on Hay Creek in redwing

4 posts in this topic

Hello all. Looking for some help about the Redwing Trout streams. I fished Hay Creek last year and did pretty well. It was the middle of season and didn't see many other fishermen. Wondering if it will be packed this coming Saturday. Also, does anyone know how high the water is??? Would chest waders be helpful? What's the outlook for catching fish there this weekend? Thanks for any help in advance. Chad Sharkey

Weekends had been pretty packed. However, now that most streams are open for C&R it has dwindled quite a bit. Chances are there will be a fisherman or two... but nothing overwhelming. Water levels are fairly normal again, clarity is ok, chest waders probably aren't necessary. I barely ever get in the water on Hay regardless of where I access. And yes, there still seem to be some fish in there. GOOD LUCK.

This weekend is the opener of the "catch and KEEP" season here in MN so all of the streams will be crowded. If you can find a place that takes a lot of walking to get to it will eliminate the crowds, but you still won't have it to your self.

Personally I avoid the streams this weekend.

Went to Hay this weekend and as advised, there were tons of people. Did a lot of walking to find some un-fished territory but no luck. Not a single fish. Going down this tuesday or wednesday, hopefully the fish will be settled by then. Does anyone have advice on the best spots to fish Hay??? I've only fished it twice and not very familiar with the area? Thanks, Chad.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
