Hello all,


Trout day will be held at Forestville State Park on the 28th of April(rain or shine, or snow for that matter).

{THIS EVENT IS FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY, SO BRING YOUR KIDS OR THE NEIGHBORS!}

If you would like to, bring a grill for some BBQ-ing. Things will be starting around 9:00am in the picnic shelter and run to
"at least" 3:00pm. This pavilion has both open air and indoor facilities.

There will be door prizes provided by area sporting goods/bait stores!
At 10:00 am, The Field Editor for Midwest Flyfishing will be available for 2 hours of question and answers or BS.

Rick plans on coming down as well. There are a few details yet to come(additional presentations etc.) Plan on a day of fishing, fellowship, education and plain old fun!!! I sure would like to meet other fisherman and talk about our wonderful opportunities in SE MN!!!!

PS. I will be providing an update soon! Look forward to seeing all of you there!!

That sounds like fun, I grew up on trout fishing in N.E. Iowa, and love it. I fished trout when I lived in Colorado, but since I moved to Minn. I have just been fishing lakes. I think it's time to get back to trout fishing.!!!

Latest update:

Turk from Croixsippi guiding services has graciously donated a half-day guided fishing trip on the ST.Croix river! Turk is a Croix river rat who understands the ST.Croix and it's fish! He can help you target your favorite species!! Check out his site at Croixsippi.com!!!
Whom ever wins this prize will definitely be in for a fishing treat of a life-time!

If you have'nt heard, trout opener looks real ugly right about now! This only tells me that the 28th would be your best bet to get some real fishing in! SO why not stop down at Forestville state park for Trout Day?! See you there! Jim W

PS. Just received word from the "Gullguide". He is donating a halfday guided trout fishing trip on the Cuyuna Mine pits near Crosby, MN as a door prize for Trout Day! Thanks Tom!!!!!!!

The guy from Red Barn Rods won't be able to make it tomorrow for Trout Day. Earlier on another thread there was some talk he might be down.
However I will have a few assorted rods from him available for sale, as well as brochures and a price list for the taking.

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.
    • kelly-p
      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.
    • Horseshoe_Don
      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth. 
    • pikeandchester
      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!
    • leech~~
      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there. 
    • eyeguy 54
      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.
