Important Announcement from Minnesota Steelheader
Moving through troubled times
When this organization was started nearly 20 years ago, we set out with the mission to Inform, Inspire and Educate any and all who had an interest in this great fishery we call the North Shore. Since that time, Minnesota Steelheader has written hundreds of articles, started many projects and programs, adopted a river, provided numerous free clinics and seminars covering the full range of Steelheading opportunities in Minnesota, and participated in State Advisory Groups and scientific studies. Our visitors and followers have grown from just a handful in the US to now hosting tens of thousands of friends from Canada, Great Britain, France, Denmark, Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia. We are constantly humbled and greatly appreciate you all. You see, Steelheading is our passion.
Minnesota Steelheader is made up of a group of incredible people. We are all volunteers from many walks of life who live and work along the North Shore as well as in other parts of our great State, and we deeply care about the people in our communities. We are all in this together even though, for a time, we will have to be apart.
As an organization, Minnesota Steelheader will be adhering to CDC guidelines, Governor Walz’s Executive Orders and the Minnesota DNR’s recommendations to recreate close to home wherever that may be. We encourage everyone to read and understand what each of those guidelines, recommendations, and orders mean.
It is with great sadness but equally greater resolve that effective April 4th, 2020, Minnesota Steelheader is canceling our planned spring clinics. We will work with those who have signed up to develop plans for the future. Registered clinic participants who have made a donation to our spring Women on the Fly clinic may request a refund via our contact e-mail: Minnesota Steelheader
Our social media presence will also deviate somewhat from our usual spring postings for the time being. MNST believes these changes must be made, and are one small responsible part of a much larger effort to protect those we care about in our North Shore communities, ourselves, our families, our friends, and our followers.
We look forward to the day when we can all once again freely share in this passion we call Steelheading. Until then, Be Well, Be Safe.
