Weighted streamers on flouro. 20 to 14 lb, dredge the bottom. More than likely a slow retrieve with an occasion twitch swinging downstream through pools and deeper runs.

I got out today to a state park. Fishing was slow but between a buddy and I we landed a half dozen. There were a few fish rising to midge emergers and we spotted a very few fluttering about. Most fish came on a size 20 CDC pheasant tail emerger. I landed one on a pink scud too. Fish definitely seemed more sluggish than the last time I fished in early December.

With temps forecast to touch 30 on Sunday we'll likely see midges coming off sparingly yet with consistency. As with many others I plan to fish a tandem nymph rig on the bottom with a bobber unless I spot some decent fish rising.

If anyone sees me tromping around on Sunday or Monday in my dumpy lookin' boot footed neoprene waders don't hesitate to say howdy!

Good luck and stay warmBigGrin

I'll be throwing streamers (zonkers and buggers) on a 9' 6wt with either a 7'5" slow sink airflo leader and 8lb fluro tippet or 7.5' 0x w/ 2x tippet depending on the water level (I'll be out with guys who are spin fishing and like to dredge holes, so probably the former). This is my first opener with a fly rod, but I've been getting out during c'n'r to work on casting.

Hello, what makes fishing for trout in Minnesota so uncommon? Among the clear range of nature, well-managed brooks and streams, and the wide assortment of grand territory in which they can be found. The Southeast Minnesota's strong position holds an amazing 700 miles of assigned trout streams, a large number of which move through the most-stunning stream or river valleys in the country. We have used there Seaguar Fluoro Premier 25 Yards Fluorocarbon Leader. Seaguar Fluoro Premier 25 Yards Fluorocarbon Leader also allows for knot strength and high impact strength so that you can put into service it for angling different types of fishes.
