Minnesota Steelheader Updates Creel Project Collection

See link at the bottom of this page to access the new Creel Form Beginning this fall, MNST is changing the way we collect data for the MNST Creel Project. Unfortunately we are limited in keeping up with the times; up-to-date servers and applications cost money, and all of our membership funds and donations go right back into programs and outreach to facilitate our mission of Informing, Inspiring and Educating online and in the community.

Each year, Minnesota Steelheader collects angler-submitted creel reports of steelhead, kamloops and presumed coaster brook trout through our Creel Project page. This catch information is presented in ways we hope provides you with the most accurate picture of Minnesota's annual and long-term North Shore steelhead run behavior. This is not a scientific creel by definition. We do however incorporate and present as much of the available scientific literature as we can; the difference is that this is done from an angler's perspective. These tools provide an opportunity to be a more knowledgeable and most importantly, a more successful North Shore steelheader. 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 . MNST analyzes reported catch dates, region caught, the numbers by species, measurement
