Stream trout fishing season now open (01/14/2007)
Those looking for a cure for the winter blues might want to cast a glance toward southeastern Minnesota where the stream trout season is now open.

The winter trout fishing season in the southeast, which is strictly catch and release, runs from Jan. 1 through March 31.

Steve Klotz, Department of Natural Resources (DNR) area fisheries supervisor at Lanesboro, said winter stream trout fishing "provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy the outdoors during the heart of winter and also sharpen your angling skills. It's highly challenging and great fun."

Klotz reminds anglers that only barbless hooks are allowed (crimped hooks are permitted) and fish handling should be kept to a minimum. If the temperature is below freezing, trout should not be removed from the water.

Only select streams are open to winter fishing. Those are listed in the 2006 Fishing Regulation booklet, in the brochure 2005 Trout Angling Opportunities in Southeastern Minnesota, and on the DNR web site (www.dnr.state.mn.us).
