Just got back from the Brule. We fished all of Saturday. The weather was awesome and the river was beautiful as always. I brought some friends along who don't get to fish the rivers or streams very much and they loved it. We had a blast... even though we got skunked. The water was pretty high and I'm not sure many fish were moving upstream yet..A lot of people told me that they heard someone else had been catching fish. None of those people had caught any for themselves though. I think it's a little early still.

It's still the special season so you can't fish south of HWY 2.
It's also artificial bait only right now..
The lakes throughout Douglas county still had some ice. but the edges were mostly open and lots of the smaller lakes were open too.

do you think the river will be fine in 2 weeks?

I'm not sure.. It would be nice to find some other reports from the area. I'm usually there in the fall not spring so lots of spots are different with the higher water..

I would think your chances would be better in two weeks though.

DNR says water temp is about 38. Those steelheads don't move in until 40.
There are a few being caught on the lower rivers. The Brule is still several weeks out.

Hey CK.. did you just call the DNR and ask them or is there something on the site that tells you the water temps?

I wish I knew things like that before driving..
I didn't know about the 40 degree thing so I still would have driven up their. Next year I'll keep it in mind.. smile smiley

I couldn't find it either but this link has a few reports.
Brule reports


The one from 4/16 says the ice is still around the mouth. I can attest to that because when I was there on the 12th the ice was still floatin around the mouth. But temps have been warm since then and I know it hit 70 the other day. I would think it's getting close.

Wish I could be of more help.
