I fished it one day in early June right at the (Contact Us Please) near VDL, to the rapids about a mile down. Wouldn't recommend that area - a couple snakes, one big smallmouth follow, and that was it. There are a couple musky in that area, but not enough action overall, and a lot of boulders to ram into.

That's pretty good, I spelled dam wrong and got called on it by this site. Anyway, I fished from the DAM near Vermilion Dam Lodge until the rapids about a mile down....

Sue,

The stretch between two mile and eight mile creek is best for fishing. Mostly smallies and northerns. Good numbers and a lot of fun. You will likely have it to yourself. Your resort should have a canoe that you could use. Drop in at two mile creek and canoe into the river, would make a great day trip.

i used to guide the area doug just talked about...you can catch alot of walleyes and some jumbo perch.....also the pike and northern and i would imagine there are those muskies in there too......the trip up two mile creek can be hard on a prop...take an extra.....there are ribbons to mark a shallow spot....but the water may be down...so its all real shallow....just take your time.....bugs may also be a factor....can get alot of deer flies and such......doesnt sound great ....but it can be of some fun in there....depends what you want to put into it....

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
