The Summer Minnesota DNR Cleanup Review just recently was published on line.  The review highlights information pertaining to the Adopt-a-River cleanup efforts within the State on Minnesota. 
In this issue you will find Minnesota Steelheader featured within the "on the water" section.  The write up highlights our efforts this past spring cleaning up our recently adoption of the Sucker River on the North Shore.

For those of you interested in becoming more active within Minnesota Steelheader please contact us through our website or simply keep following our blog and facebook for more info.  We are working on an exciting agenda for 2012, starting with another overhaul to our website.  There are a few group events also on the horizon. Oh, and some cool embroidered fishing caps and fleece hats will be available soon.

Blog & Facebook Contributor Jesse contemplating making a critical fly selection. And yes, he does bring his La-Z-Boy with him wherever he fishes. You should see him perched in the middle of the Knife at 500cfs! Note however the almost perfect utilization of Feng Shui; a sublimely Zen moment for sure...
