But Kamloops rainbow fishing not as good
DULUTH, Minn. -- Steelhead anglers on Minnesota's North Shore enjoyed some banner steelhead fishing days this spring. Returns of spawning steelhead to the Department of Natural Resources' Knife River fish trap indicate it was a record year for wild steelhead returns since the trap began operating in 1996.
ST. PAUL -- Bass in Minnesota have long lived in the shadow of the walleye, the official state fish.
But on Saturday, the celebrated opening day for walleye — the quarry of Gov. Mark Dayton, political leaders and the bulk of perhaps half a million other Minnesotans who will go fishing — largemouth and smallmouth bass will share the spotlight as well.

Early spring means anglers can expect a more typical Minnesota walleye opener this year, but low water could present challenges.
The half-million or so anglers venturing out for this year's Minnesota walleye opener will encounter a drastically different fishing scenario than they have the past two years.
DULUTH, Minn. -- Citizen advisory panels convened by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in northeastern Minnesota have recommended a range of deer population goals -- from no change in some units to 50 percent increases in others -- as part of a statewide effort to reassess deer population goals.
Anglers on Upper Red Lake likely will face continued conservative regulations this spring as fisheries managers look to rein in a walleye harvest that is beginning to creep past target levels on Minnesota's 48,000-acre portion of the lake.
One thing is certain about this summer's walleye regulations on Mille Lacs Lake: They're likely to be at least as restrictive as last year's, when anglers were allowed to keep just two walleyes between 18 and 20 inches, with one over 28 allowed in the limit.
WILLMAR, Minn. -- Kelly Welch has covered himself in corn stalks, shivered in cold waters in the pre-dawn dark, and slogged through ankle deep mud. All of this is for the thrill waterfowl hunters know when their prey comes into range.
Q. I've heard reports that spring snow goose seasons again are underway in North Dakota and Minnesota. Why are these seasons offered?
A. The spring snow goose season is a federal "conservation order" -- as opposed to a traditional hunting season -- implemented by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service some 15 years ago in an effort to reduce overabundant populations of light geese that were decimating the fragile arctic coastlines where they breed.
FRENCH RIVER, Minn. -- It didn't matter that the afternoon temperature topped out at 7 degrees. It didn't matter that the breeze from the west was creating a flip-your-hood-up wind chill. Nor did it matter that a chaos of fractured ice extended 40 yards from shore near the mouth of the French River.
DULUTH, Minn. -- Fifty feet above the ground, clinging to a sheer wall of gabbro 80 feet high, Duluth's Adam Dailey begins to disappear. He's doing a training climb on mixed rock and ice at Casket Quarry, a popular climbing area on the hillside above West Duluth.
