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.

      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.
