The Mississippi River is expected to be around flood stage this coming weekend, so I decided to check on some of my favorite trout streams in order to help prepare for fishing this weekend.

Being that I live and play in the Mississippi River basin, the season opener doesn't have much impact on me, because I can pretty much fish all year. However, it does restrict my ability to fish for trout until the mid-year season from March to September.

I live and play in the Mississippi River basin, so the season opener doesn't have much impact on me, because I can pretty much fish all year around; however, it does restrict my ability to fish for trout until the mid year season from March to September.

Despite the rainfall we've had over the past week, the trout streams were for the most part moderately stained and very fishable, and unless something major happens in the next day (like a major storm), I expect the trout fishing season opener to be an excellent one.

The weather forecast for Saturday is calling for partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of showers or a storm coming through later on. So I would encourage going out earlier in the morning, focusing on sun rise fish and if the water is too murky, don't be afraid to try a worm or two.
