The Brule River has opened from hwy 2 to lake superior and so far with mostly positive feedback. The river has been running between 160-170 cfs and with just enough color to help conceal us the fisherman. Water temps have been in the mid thirties but of course fluctuating as the sun hits the valley through out the day. The usual menu options of globugs and egg patterns along with rubber legged nymph patterns such as the x-legs, red fox squirrel nymph, aggravators and the like. Good luck.
