Went out and fished for Rainbows for the first time on a stocked lake in the Walker area. In 2 days we brought home a 9.5", two 12", and a 12.5" fish along with releasing a lot of smaller fish both days.
Welcome to LSF!!Thanks for your report. Those rainbows should be tasty for sure. Kato, there is good information on the Central Mn. forum in the Grindstone Lake thread. I also explain about rainbows in my site below in the Where To Go page in the Grindstone section. I'll be trying for more until the March 31st closing as long as the ice is safe. good luck.
They seemed to be around 12-18 fow and hitting on small spoons. All of them that where taken home were filled with invertebrates are fatheads. So I would go with fatheads or waxies, but this was a couple weeks ago now so the bite may have changed. Just keep moving!
Remember the use of bait on inland stream trout lakes. NO live bait can be used in designated trout lakes. Lakes like Grindstone for example is a non-designated trout lake so live bait can be used. However most stocked ponds or lakes are designated trout lakes, so no live bait can be used in those waters. good luck.
