STREAM CONDITIONS AND BLOG
Today brought the end to Minnesota's regular catch & release trout season but don't fret, trout fishing remains open on waters within the area's State Park and Fall can be an excellent time to fly fish for Smallmouth! The last few days were often wet, dreary and cool but the streamer action was red hot. It was a phenomenal way to bring the season to a close. Be sure to stop in at the Driftless Fly Fishing Company fly shop in Preston, MN to replace that older worn out gear, upgrade that fly rod, restock the fly box or it's never too early to start Christmas shopping! How about a gift certificate for a guided fly fishing trip for someone special ..... or maybe just treat yourself :-)
