A customer emailed me this report just now from this morning!

8.9.17 Stream Report

I received a report this morning of great trico fishing around 9am on the Rush before the rains today. The rains could dirty up the rivers a bit depending on how much we get. The cooler weather has gotten the lake temps in the metro back down in the low 70’s.

7.8.17 Stream Report

A report from a customer of ours who fished the Rush River yesterday. “I started fishing around 7:00 a.m. and elected to start with a #12 tan caddis with an 18” dropper to a black girdle bug. Fish were hanging on edges in a foot or less of water. Action was modest but steady. 3-4 fish took

6.8.17 Stream Report

Trout streams are in great shape! Mornings and evenings have been the best times to be out. Sulphers/PMD’s have been hatching from 6-9pm or so. Caddis and Dark Hendricksons are not a bad bet either to have in your fly box right now. Mid day has been a little tougher with super warm temps. Don’t

5.18.17 Stream Report

Rains are falling and rivers are rising!! The Kinni went way up to almost 900cfs and the Eau Galle is huge at 1500cfs from its normal of 25cfs.  I would imagine the Rush River is way over its banks as well. This is a great time to get out on your local lake and throw

5.17.17 Stream Report

The rains are falling and the rivers are rising. The Kinni is up to 260 and is still rising. I would imagine the Rush is pretty high as well. You can still catch fish with high water with big dark flies in the slow water and eddies. Just be very careful wading and crossing or
