Kinnie

I was thinking of heading out to the Kinnie or Rush this weekend. How do you think the rivers are after all this rain? What hatches might be going on?

As of yesterday 5-25 they were both "off color" however, they will clear quickly. Sulphurs are hatching in good numbers with the best yet to come. March Browns should be along any day as well. This is the best time of year!

Wow!!! A Magneto sighting!!! About as rare as a Trico hatch in May! smile.gif How's fishing, Mike?

I fished Saturday and Sunday. Lost Creek and the middle portion of the Rush were like milk chocolate. The lower was a little better. I did find some great fishing on a couple of other streams in the area, including one 18" brown on the stream near the area where you pay for rabbit pellets to make big things get even bigger. Caught a Hendrickson hatch on another stream that seemed to be just west of the storm. Water was actually clear.

Fishing has been good... when I find the time. I started my own business last fall and I have been busier then I have in my entire life. Last year I was on the water 137 days, so far this year - 10 frown.gif

Nice to know I have a fan base. wink.gif

Fished the Lower Kinnie today. Caught 18 browns total. One double. Biggest was 14 inches. The rest were mostly 10-13 inches. Some pale afternoon duns hatching, but the trout weren't feeding on them, just the nymphs.

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.
