STREAM CONDITIONS AND BLOG
The Minnesota catch & release trout season closes next week (October 15th), so be sure to get out before then and enjoy the absolutely gorgeous weather that is forecasted along with what I would describe as superb fishing. The warm, sunny autumn afternoons we have been experiencing has the "hopper" action going strong once again along with some real nice Blue Wing Olive hatches. Stream conditions are excellent and the trout are feeding well on the surface with great results being produced with Dave's Hopper patterns, BWO's and Parachute Adams dry flies.
To paraphrase a deceased patriot, I regret that I have only one life to give to my fly-fishing.
