fishing report for SE Minnesota?

Recommended Posts

moefishing

I'm from the Kansas City area and I'm thinking about heading up to SE MN this weekend for some trout fishing. I was up there in August a couple of years ago and had great luck on a number of the streams like Trout Run, Rush, Mill, etc.

I was just wondering if someone could help me out with a current fishing report in the area. It's about a seven hour drive so I hate to make it if conditions aren't great. In three hours I can be in the Ozarks where fishing has been fairly good.

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to HotSpotOutdoors / FishingMinnesota.com

Here's a report from last weekend. Cold Water Troutin

Somebody will chime in with some better details on stream conditions, temps, hatches, etc.

Hey Moe!

The streams are in great shape. A bit stained with recent rains, but good nonetheless since there wasn't an excess of rain this summer. Water temperatures on the streams you mentioned are in the upper 50s and will be about the same this weekend. There is a decent chance for more rain in the area Friday evening through Saturday, but Sunday will be sunny. High temperatures Friday through Sunday will be in the middle 70s.

Grasshoppers are all over the meadows and pastures. smile.gif

Terrestrial patterns (hoppers, ants, crickets, madame x) are tons of fun this time of year and your typical nymph patterns like PTs, Princes, and scuds are producing too.

Bring your raingear in case you get caught in some downpours Saturday, but overall things are looking good.

Good luck!

Randy

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      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.

      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.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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.
