It was a bit chilly, cloudy, and windy with one week of summer run off thrown in for good measure. When the the river levels were stable there was good action on BWO’S.
August continued to provide consistent top water action
As usual the month of June started slow but finished strong on the St.Croix. The Mississippi remains high. More boats than ever on the river these days.
If you don’t think the featured image appears to match the current year you’re correct, I borrowed it from from 2016 when there was considerably more green by the end of the month. This has been the coldest and windiest month of April I can remember. With that being said, the Rush and the Kinni have rebounded nicely from the floods during the covid years. There were some fantastic BWO and midge hatches during the month of April.
Continued low water and challenging conditions. Big fish were caught however.
Careful not to beach your boat. Both the Mississippi and St.Croix fished well in the month of July.
June of 2021 started with low water levels that got even lower. Both the St.Croix and Mississippi receded to almost record lows for the month of June. The fishing however was excellent.
We pulled it off.. albeit with with some modifications. Bike shuttles, mask compliance, buff wear, and distance maintenance were all utilized in order to minimize potential exposure. Despite the added challenges and inconveniences, some really nice fish were caught.
