Fishing Report: 4-7-11

The DNR spring creel on the lower shore will begin today, Friday, April 8.

The spring creel on the middle and upper shore will begin when conditions become appropriate.

Today we received teh follow report from the DNR.  Our field Staffer, GL, has been on the water virtually everyday this past week checking out the conditions.  His report estimates that by mid week several of the lower shore rivers should be in good shape to fish.  Next weekend he feels should be a good bet if you are a weekend angler.

MN DNR report:
On Wednesday, April 6 I drove from the Lester River north to the Temperance River to assess stream conditions. Water temperatures from the Lester to the French were 35-36 degrees; from the Sucker to the Beaver were 34 degrees; and from the Baptism to the Temperance were 33 degrees. The stream channels downstream of the upstream barriers were 75% ice free from the Lester to the French; 50% ice free from the Sucker to the Beaver; and 25% ice from the Baptism to the Temperance. Anglers stated they had caught either Kamloops or Steelhead along the lake shore adjacent to river mouths on five streams. The Lester River was the only stream anglers stated they had caught fish in the stream.
