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.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
