Headwaters Fly Fishing Company Stream Reports - Southeast Minnesota Trout Streams

Current Reports for Southeast Minnesota Trout Streams:
Select Year:  

6/10/2005 - Week of 6/1 Steve Olson

No major changes since the last report filed. Recent rains have kept the streams in the area slightly off color making for great fishing conditions. Sporadic hatches of mayflies are occurring with some caddis around as well. One notable hatch that has started is Light Hendrickson’s. In addition, there are some BWO’s, Sulfurs, and March Browns around. Look for fish to be actively feeding on nymphs and emergers in the riffs and runs. Rising activity can be widespread, but the more consistent fish are looking up for food in the flat sections.

5/24/2005 - Week of May 23 - filed by Headwaters guide Steve Olson

The Whitewater and Root River systems were still slightly off color due to recent rains as of Sunday, May 22. Having said that, fishing conditions in my opinion are ideal. There is good flow and a little bit of color to the water never hurts. Sporadic rising activity was witnessed with no fish setting up in feeding lanes and taking flies on the surface with any consistency. There is a smorgasbord of bug activity right now, with BWO’s, small Sulfur Duns, Caddis, March Brown’s, and even a few stoneflies around. No blizzard hatches so to speak though. A lot of March Brown nymphs are on the stream beds now, and expect them to start hatching with more regularity in the upcoming weeks. As always, Pheasant Tail nymphs, Hare’s Ears, Caddis Pupa, Copper John’s, and Scuds are a good way to target fish feeding below the surface. Emergers and nymphs fished weightless is also a deadly technique that many fly fishers overlook.
