Prolly better in the spring or when the water is higher. I don't think much water is being let out. I'm going to Tonka tonight, but won't check out the lil dam where Minnehaha begins. Good luck

I heard the dam is closed so no water coming out of tonka. Which is good for Tonka - its low. We need RAIN confused.gif

The creek is really drying up. I saw lots of fish trapped in pools in the St. Louis Park area. Mostly chubs & minnows but there were a few small bass, bluegills & carp. Catching bait is pretty easy right now.

I wonder how it is now with the rain we got? Hopefully some minnows/fish made it.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
