Catching Winter Trout

Author: 

Winter fishing doesn’t have to mean chopping a hole in the ice and hoping you have the right spot to catch the right fish.

           Along the 6,000 stream miles of the Root River in Southeastern Minnesota the water runs at a warm 40 degrees throughout the winter. This is perfect for active midges, caddis flies and hungry eastern, rainbow and brown trout to thrive despite the snow and cold.

Exploring the Arrowhead

Cook County, the tip of northeastern Minnesota’s “arrowhead,” offers groomed trails in the wilderness. When it comes to cross-country skiing, two critical factors make for a memorable experience. Spectacular surroundings don’t make up for sloppy trails. Yet good grooming doesn’t compensate for dull scenery, either.
