Bizarre Trout Experience & Video

Recommended Posts

I had a very surprising experience last weekend on the St. Croix River on the WI walleye opener… fishing with my dad and he caught 2 large brown trout. About 10 years ago I also caught a nice brown trout on the St. Croix while going for walleyes (crawler on the bottom) so was quite shocked to get 2 in the same morning.


We didn’t want to kill the fish anyway but were curious – do you guys know if you’re allowed to keep a trout on the St. Croix without a trout stamp?


My dad had never caught a trout before (and I’ve only caught 3 or 4 lake trout in Canada) so now we’ve got trout on the brain. We’re going to Aikens Lake Wilderness Lodge in Manitoba this summer with my 5-year and it’s predominantly walleye but they do have trophy lake trout we might target for a day.


Also saw this video on Kenanow Lodge and it looked pretty awesome, plus a cool twist getting on the fall bite since May/June we’re pretty busy chasing walleyes and pike. If nothing else, a fun video to watch and get excited about!

You need a trout stamp to keep a trout anywhere. Unless your dad is a senior citizen? In which case, he doesn’t need a trout stamp anymore.
