2.13.18 Stream Report

Finally!!!  Wow, that was a long stretch of cold weather. The lowest temp I am seeing in the 10 day forecast is 20 degrees with plenty of 30’s. The ice shelves will recede and fishing should be good! Pink Squirrels, midges, buggers, frenchie’s, scuds, black stones and some griffith’s gnats should cover your bases while

2.7.18 Stream Report

BRRRRRR!!!!!!  Cold temps settled back into MN and WI last week and not too many folks have been out fishing. I am sure a good bit of shelf ice has formed on the rivers again. Once some warmer weather (mid 30’s) comes back around it won’t take long for the ice to dissipate. Upper reaches

Check your water temps when the snow is melting!  We fished down down LOW on the Rush yesterday and couldn’t even buy a fish while friends of ours fished the upper Rush near Martel and had a great day. Water temps yesterday by Martel were in the low 40’s while water temps in the lower

Fishing has been excellent lately. The warmer temps have gotten rid of most of the ice.  We recommend using scuds, pink squirrels, and midges this time of year. If you get bored of nymphing, streamers such as a wooly bugger can be pretty effective on the right day. The forecast looks pretty good for the

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

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

Rivers have cleared up for the most part and are fishing well!! Caddis and Sulphers are going to be the main hatches you will see out on the rivers right now. I have heard streamers are working well and nymphs are always a good bet. Smallmouth bass fishing has been excellent as our waters are
