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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
