I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place but I'm going to be in Rochester for several days and was wondering if there are streams around town. I have fished all over Iowa and Wisconsin but this is my first trip to this area. Does the Minnesota DNR put out trout maps like Iowa and Wisconsin? If so can someone post a link? Thanks.

MN DNR Trout Stream Maps

Nothing right in town, except for Foster Arend Pond, which gets stocker rainbows throughout the year, but maps 4 thru 11 aren't too far a drive for a morning or evening outing.

The entire Root system is worth a look. My personal favorite is the Rush/Pine Creek system north of Rushford, on map #5. Tons of water, easy access, and if you're a fly guy its incredibly open. Just please release any Brookies you catch.

Thanks guys, I always release the Browns and brooks, I release 95% of the rainbows I catch but once or twice I year I keep one or two to eat. They sent me back to Iowa today but I will be heading back up Monday and should get some fishing in on Monday and Tuesday.

Do the brookies a favor and eat the browns if you find both in a stream Razz

See above; I love Browns but they're reaching such high numbers that they're even starting to push Brookies out of the headwaters and feeders on quite a few streams. The system I recommended has PLENTY of Browns so please don't hesitate to take a few 8-12s.
