I found that the Eyes have moved off the wing dams last weekend and instead caught Flatheads in scour pools below the dam with a one-ounce jig threaded with a crawler fished on the bottom.
Then there are the trout. I chased the Light Hendrickson and March Brown hatches on Winona county spring creeks. I fooled dozens of trout with my chicken feather flies.
I happened on a Beaver dam pond in a trout creek that was chalk full of Browns. I took many fish on size two streamers, the largest being just shy of three and a half pounds.
The Parsnip plants are up and blooming. They are a poisonous plant that can leave you riddled with blisters and are something to avoid.
