Stream Conditions: 4/19/2020

Southeast Minnesota’s trout streams are in good shape for fishing this weekend and look to remain so for the week ahead. Temperatures will finally start to bump upward this week with the warmest day being Wednesday. There will be occasional showers and thunderstorms but at this time aren’t looking to be the lingering type that blow out our watersheds.

Instead of fishing today (Sunday, 4/19) I decided to get out for a hike with the fam through Whitewater State Park. There were quite a few anglers and hikers around; everyone doing a good job of social distancing so don’t be afraid to get out. State Parks will be much more busy than some other streams. If you’re willing to hike in a ways, you should run across fewer people.

There are reports of caddis around and I’d imagine we continue to see more insect activity in the next couple weeks.
