Water levels

6 posts in this topic

I hope the BPCL went well for all last night. I haven't been on the river for weeks now and would like to make a few trips before September and the hunting season. Are there any areas that have water that one can travel on by boat. Just thje landing and what direction that would be safe would be great.

Thanks for the help.

I am sticking to the dredged area of the river... props are expensive.

You could launch at St. Peter and stay near the launch area. There is deep water on the opposite shore of the launch area for several hundred yards. I wouldn't go too far from the launch site.

Come to think of it... I didn't "bump" a single thing last night. We also didn't catch any fish either, so I must have done something wrong by not "bumping" enough stuff.

No problem with water level downstream of Jordan. Just a TON of wood to snake through. As long as you know what line to take.....piece of cake.

Until that is when your spotlight goes out....

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
