This Saturday, April 15, is the opener for Minnesota’s stream trout season and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources expects a lot of opportunities for anglers due to early spring weather.

Minnesota has about 3,800 miles of designated trout streams and according to the DNR, southeast Minnesota will offer some of the best trout fishing in the upper Midwest.  This is due to the past three mild winters, along with the absence of spring flooding, which have led to good reproduction and healthy populations of brown trout.

Crews also have been out stocking yearling rainbow trout in some streams and ponds to provide a greater variety of angling opportunities.

Trout fishing is gaining in popularity and if you’re venturing out this season, make sure to click the link below for fishing opportunities across the state.
