Trout on the Fly

5 posts in this topic

I just bought a fly rod and was curious if anyone has done any fly fishing for trout in the St. Cloud area. Let me know if you can help or want to take a newbie out.

I've seen a few ppl fly fishing on the trout streams out by rice. Great area to fish its surrounded by state land.

smoley are you talking about Little Rock creek? I've scoped that out (without a rod) and didn't see any proof of life...but maybe I wasn't looking in the right areas or it has improved recently. I know there has been concern over runoff raising the temp of the water and also silt issues but it would be nice to have a trout stream in the area to fish (especially if they made it C&R only).

I also vaguely remember you mentioning the little stream that runs into the 'Sip by the Rice bridge. Is this fishable? I spose a guy could just wade up it considering the road provides a public access.

Thanks,

I was refering to the little rock creek. Haven't made it out there this year normally go shortly after trout opener and many trout are visible. Personaly only hooked into one out there, suckers and chubs are very abundant there. As for the one by the rice bridge never fished it. The old man says he caught trout out there but that had to be 25+ years ago. On the Benton side of the river i have fished and you will get suckers and the occasional crappie or eye.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
