Was wondering if anyone here has fished the South Fork, and if so, good access points/Road Crossings to try it for larger Trout. Tried just upstream from Boyceville on Sunday, lost my one diving rap to an ice shelf, and left for the Kinni. I've heard that the downstream reaches held some huge Brookies, but I'm not sure if I'm working the right area or using the right tactics. I assume fishing the mouth of any of the feeders would be a good summer strategy for this, but I'm not sure. Looking for a 15+ Brook Trout, and I think the stream can produce them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Access is pretty limited to road crossings/bridges. There is one location that is public access more to the north, however, it obviously gets heavily fished. There are some good fish in this stream and other sections are less then enticing with a lot of flat straight sandy pasture sections.

Below 79 is dog shit wide and sandy. By mouth assume also worthless. Further up more productive. Brook trout streams in general think still too cold.

Thanks guys. Looked like a better stream for summer anyway. Just want to get a wild trophy Brook Trout without having to cross borders. Thanks again
