Does anyone have any stream condition reports for SE MN, more specifically south of I-90?

I had 1.75" in my rain gauge over the last couple days in south central MN. I would like to fish some bigger water but looking at stream gauges that might not be possible tomorrow. I'm sure there is fishable water on the smaller tribs.

Any reports appreciated.

I can't speak for streams south of 90 but I drove past a few smaller ones today and they were crystal clear. I'd guess that bigger ones have a bad stain but I'd guess by tomorrow you'll have some options. If I were planning to get out I'd assume it'll be a flip of a coin. Check your PM!

Hopefully someone can give you a first hand account...

Thanks for the updates. I'm heading south of 90 Sunday. Got my fingers crossed for a dark henderickson hatch.

Well I made it out on Saturday. It was cold and windy. Water was slightly cloudy. I tried plastics for the first hour with no luck. Switched to a Panther Martin and caught about a dozen in the next hour. Switched to a Rapala for a little while and caught 4 or 5 more. Biggest fish was 14" All in all a great day minus the cold and wind.
