STREAM CONDITIONS AND BLOG
Area streams are in good shape with normal flows and they have cleared after the several rain events we had in the weeks past. Although it is early and I didn't personally see a lot of Terrestrials along the stream yesterday I still ended up having a phenomenal outing by throwing Dave's Hoppers and Pink Bellied Morrish patterns. Their eyes were definitely focused upwards so now is a great time to start trying those beetles, ants, crickets and Hoppers! Stop by the shop and stock that fly box .... and while there, be sure to pick up a free copy of Midwest Hunting and Fishing magazine which has an article by yours truly about Terrestrial pattern fly fishing the Minnesota Driftless.
Melvin Hayner is the owner of The Driftless Fly Fishing Company in Preston, Mn. He has been fishing this area for over 23 years and guiding here for over a decade. Some reports will be from other reliable sources around the Driftless area. Thanks guys.
