I fish this stream all the time. It reminds me of the larger streams I'm used to in Upstate NY, with plenty of room for backcasts and an abundance of fish. Since I've not perfected my stealth approach to the more common spring creeks in Minnesota, that's a good thing for me. Fish rise easily to dry flies, but I've had more luck on a yellow, gold or orange beadhead caddis nymph swung across the current. I've caught fish to about 18 inches, and have had 30-40 fish days using this fly. Well worth the drive from the Twin Cities! Oh, so now you want to know where I fish? Ha! (1/19/13)
