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.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
