Letter about... Thanking landowners who allow angling along their streams


Mon, Jan 5th, 2015
Posted in All Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

We in Southeast Minnesota are blessed to have over 750 miles of trout stream water in Fillmore, Houston, Olmsted, Wabasha, and Winona counties. Anglers can fish for trout and smallmouth bass along the 221 miles of those streams with perpetual angling easements. Also, many landowners who have not sold an angling easement allow anglers the opportunity to fish along their streams.

Being out on a stream and trying to catch a trout or bass is a wonderful way to enjoy the natural beauty of our region. Friends and families appreciate the opportunity to spend time together in such pursuits.

We want to thank landowners for allowing us to be on their banks. Having access to the streams is a privilege we are thankful for. All anglers should appreciate the property owners who allow access to these miles of fishing opportunities and to treat the resource and landowners with respect. Anglers should remember to seek permission when needed, be careful with fences and gates and take out the trash.

The Win-Cres and Hiawatha Chapters of Trout Unlimited would like to thank all the landowners in the five county area who give access to anglers for the opportunity to fish.

Win-Cres and Hiawatha TU are dedicated to helping increase and preserve our cold water resource for future generations.



Joe Lepley, President
