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,

SA/wdw

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.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
