I dont know anything about the st.croix, but I am done fishing millacs for the season as the bit has pretty much totally died off. Besides if you do catch any you wont be able to keep them with the new slot

Question is what do you want to catch?

If it is a bigger walleyes, Muskie’s or Smallmouth hit mille lacs up. The smallie bite I guess has been pretty good on the south end gravel, and Muskie’s have been producing as of late as well. Walleyes might be a little harder to come by but from the sounds of some of the reading on here, you can still catch them.

The croix water levels are down, but don't let that discourage you from going there. Upstream of Stillwater I wouldn't even bother with because the levels of water. But I still here people catching walleyes down there and also Cats and Smallmouth. Oh and if you just want to go catch a bunch of fish that fight.... Sheep head by the numbers are down on the croix lol.

GOOD LUCK!

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
