Belle Creek Trout Trip
Driftless Region Welch Area
Season: January – October (winter months are weather dependent)


Another adventure trip from Mahigan Outdoors, our Belle Creek trip near Welch is one of those true gems. We have put in some real time here over the course of the last few years and we are ready for our clients to see the magic of this stream for themselves. This is the beginning of the Driftless Region, and this area surrounds you with that true sense of Minnesota trout country. Belle Creek produces good numbers of fish, and at a larger size structure due to the special regulations on this water which create a perfect blend for just this type of combination. This is strictly a catch and release stream! Your going to stay busy here whether you choose to go at it with traditional fly fishing gear or conventional spinning gear. This is the farthest north stream open for the winter catch and release season of the southeast, and that means it is open January 1st, giving those of us with cabin fever a chance at trout fishing close to home almost 10 months of the year!

Some remoteness of this location relieves fishing pressure, so spending an entire day here and not seeing another fisherman is not uncommon on our trip to the "back country". We have proven success on this water with youth and novice fisherman; we specialize in just this sort of thing on all our trips! Let Mahigan Outdoors take you into this beautiful, off the beaten path place, and expose you to what true trout habitat and special regulations can provide here in Minnesota. 

At just 55 minutes from downtown Saint Paul, this becomes an easy day trip getting yourself on true classic trout water. Mahigan Outdoors will arrange everything with you, meeting location and transportation there, gear if needed, and of course great fishing. Our new Belle Creek adventure is nearly perfectly made for any level trout fisherman. Consider this a perfect blend between bigger fish and numbers fishing!
