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....

      Thanks Rick, i was hoping that at least a few of the areas would be decent to explore.  Looks like a life jacket, spud, hand auger and a lot of walking are in store to get to know the area.

      Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort Lake of the Woods, NW Angle 1/16/17 Fishing up here in the angle has been great! On the Minnesota side the Walleye, Sauger and Jumbo Perch bite has been hot. The early morning and afternoon bite has been best and the fish are aggressive. We have been fishing in 21-28 feet on reefs, gravel bars, shoals and rocks. Buckshots, Lindy Flyers, Ripping Raps, and Jigging Raps have all produced fish. Live minnows with demon glow and a bobber have also been successful. Colors of choice have been red glow, gold, pink and green glow. A lot of nice fish in the 29 inch range have been caught as well as large quantities. Over on the Ontario side the Crappie and Walleye bite has been awesome, better than the days of Red Lake. We have also hooked into the Jumbo Perch and they are of good size and quantity. We’ve been fishing in the 28-34 foot range. Something to know about when fishing up the deep waters of Ontario is the crappie mortality rate is high when releasing crappies in 25' of water or greater.  We encourage guests to catch your desired number of crappies up to your limit and then go target other species of fish.  Crappies and Walleyes sometimes appear to swim back down the hole when released but often times do not make it due to being reeled in so fast from great depths. We still advise anglers to stay on marked trails due to the heavy current changing ice conditions. Until next week, good luck fishing!
