Hiawatha Trout Unlimited

Big Trout Update

What to know what’s happening with big trout in the Southeast, why they are relatively rare but also where to find them? And maybe a few hints on how to catch them?

Come to the April 1 meeting of Hiawatha Trout Unlimited and hear Brian Nerbonne, regional Department of Natural Resources fisheries manager for the Central Region, explain more about the big trout. The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at 125 Live in Rochester (125 Elton Hills DR NW – on the west side of the Rec Center).
