We made the run down to the Winona area for the Memorial Day weekend, as my wife is a Winona State alum. The kids had a good time at Farmer’s Park on Garvin Brook.

 

Not a prime location from a hardcore fishing standpoint, but a solid choice for a picnic with the family and some fishing.

 

Here’s me trying to teach kids how to be stealth when approaching some rising trout.

 

Which eventually netted Ava’s first brown trout. Note the finger nail polish sort of matches the spots on the little brown! We also ran up to Pickwick Creek (I didn’t get any shots). I had planned to fish the pasture section above the mill, but ran out of time. Looking forward to my next visit to get a more serious crack at a few of the local streams!
