It poured in the twin cities , so I figure it will be muddy , with lots of water hitting
the streams and creeks. Is it worth hitting Willow State Park this weekend?
Streamer fishing and angling worth it?

From what I see in River Falls and on the Kinni River gauge, the rivers are fine right now. Unless we get a dumping, the water should be very fishable in the Pierce County area. Any specific reason you are hitting the Willow? Why not drop down a bit and fish around River Falls or Ellsworth?

We didn't get much rain in Pierce County, so I assume (without scouting) that all rivers should be fine. NOAA and USGS show that the area received about .1 of an inch of rain this morning. It is still cloudy, so I think the fishing should be fun. The Kinni, Rush, and their tribs should be flowing just fine. Keep in mind that it is River Falls Days in River Falls, so the roads are busy and there are a lot of people downtown. I say fish outside of RF and you should be fine.
