Might make for an interesting change of pace, just sayin'.

Southeast Minnesota is all spring creeks, which stay around 40F all winter long. Winter fishing is a bit slow due to the cooler water, but still can be very productive if you know what you're doing. Some ice forms on still water, but the channels and currents all stay open.

It's one of my favorite times to fish that area because it is jaw-droppingly beautiful. When the sun shines down to the bottom of the stream and warms up the rocks, you can get midge hatches that result in excellent dry fly fishing. Olive wooly buggers and small stone nymphs are also very productive.
