I haven’t written many reports this year, mostly due to the great fishing that we have been experiencing. In short, I have just been too busy fishing to write. As far as weather goes, the 2011 Minnesota trout season has been tough, but that’s where the bad news ends, because the trout have been more than cooperative.
In the past I have found that the years with the most water produce the most trout, and so far in 2011 we have had an abundance of both. So far the waters south of I-90 (particularly the Root River) have stayed relatively high forcing most anglers to work the smaller streams or into the upper branches of the Root around the Forestville area.
The streams and rivers north of I-90 have missed much of the heavy rains so these waters (Whitewater River) have stayed at a fairly normal level and are mostly clear. Regardless of whether you go north or south, the trout have been active and hungry.
Very active hatches are taking place right now (yellow to white in a #16 to #18 size) so Feather Floaters are having a bit of an edge over Hardware Heavers, but Spinners are also producing extremely well and bringing in some very large fish. My most productive spinner so far has been the new BLACK LIGHTING with the silver blade and single hook, but clients and buddies have been doing very well using SUPER BOWS in Gold/Silver, Copper/Silver as well as both styles of BLACK PEARLS.
Because of the great trout action, we have been fishing well after dark using the Glow-In- the- Dark BLUE Super Bow spinner, with great night action results. See all of the Bow Spinners at” eggersspinners.com “ and check out the new GOLDEN RAINbow! FREE with every order of $30 or more.
Until next time...
Keep it low, slow and with the flow, and don’t go without your Bow!
