MNST Fall Streamside Clinic set

It's that time of year again where our excitement for fall North Shore fishing transitions into calendar dates!

 Since 2011 we have been providing a unique fall streamside fishing clinic to interested anglers.  It is held at a river location (to be determined) along the North Shore that will give provide the best opportunity for teaching and hopefully catching some trout and/or salmon.  This is the first in a series of 3 different niche clinics currently on our annual calendar.

The fall streamside salmon clinic, as it is called, was developed to offer beginner and intermediate anglers a learning environment that is comfortable, non-judgmental, and hands-on.  The fall season is perfect for this!  With river levels fairly predicable and stable, moderate to low water flow, our teaching is much easier.  We are able to demonstrate safe wading tips, teach anglers how to read water more effectively, easily identify trout and salmon holding water, and fish more water than the often unpre…

2018 Creel Project Results

A Note about the Minnesota Steelheader Creel Project:

Each year, Minnesota Steelheader collects and compiles voluntarily submitted creel reports of steelhead, kamloops and presumed coaster brook trout through our Creel Project page.

While the primary focus has been fish caught in the tributaries during the Spring migration and spawning run, we appreciate and accept creel reports year-round. MS analyzes reported catch dates, region caught, the numbers by species,measurements of daily flow, temperature and other open-source fisheries data, and the results are charted in Daily, Weekly and Historical formats.

This is not a scientific creel by definition. We do however incorporate, use and present as much of the available scientific literature as we can; the difference is that this is done from a fishing perspect…
