Looking for some basic information on trying to fish for some loopers, or maybe a bonus brown trout between Duluth and the baptism river. Anyone have any ideas. Might be in the area next weekend. Looking to catch my first looper. Hopefully on a fly rod or a light rod with a spinner. Also want to get the fiancé her first as well.

The loopers and steelhead have left the streams by now and are back in the big lake. You are better off fishing for stream trout in the upper streches of the rivers or inland stream trout lakes. good luck.

Most people use bait for loopers, whether it be nightcrawlers, salmon eggs, or mealworms. Mouth of the French River is the most popular spot, followed by the Lester River. This was the first year the DNR discontinued looper stocking, so as time passes, they will become more and more rare, until they are completely gone in 4 or 5 years.

If you are talking about Loopers , yes they will be gone as time goes. They stopped stoking them for one thing and they don't or very little have a effect on re-producing in a natural manner. The DNR has evidence of loopers and steelhead cross breeding and that weakens the steelhead in the long run and that is why they stopped stocking them. good luck.
