St. Croix Update?

6 posts in this topic

Any general info on how the river has been lately above the dam at Taylors Falls? Don't necessarily need fishing reports, just info on water temps, water levels, and clarity of the water after this front that we've had. I have a small 5 boat tourney out there this saturday and haven't been up there in 2 weeks. I'll be sure to give an update on how it went... Thanks for any info!

All I know for sure is they didn't get much of this rain we had here. I would expect the lower water levels that have been the norm recently.

The river levels were up a little bit last week, but not anywhere near normal. Tunrevir and I got out near Franconia last Thursday. He outfished me in rock bass! smile.gif But then again I outfished him in mooneye, so in the end we both caught one fish each in the "-1" category. The fishing wasn't too bad, got a few crappies, and a little of everything.

Above the dam, I'm guessing it's about the same...a little higher than a couple weeks ago, but still well below normal.

You won the contest with that white tip. Although you lost that northern so that maybe set you back a little. smile.gif Yes indeed, we will definitely get out again. You are always welcome in the Tracker.

Yesterday was the club tourney. The water had not gone up too much, but the water temps had dropped 10 degrees since the last time I was there. I had 9 1/2 pounds for 3 fish...with the biggest one at just about 4lbs. I caught them all in 6fow or deeper on a finesse jigs. Other guys in my club caught more fish than I did but not many over 14inches. Nobody brought in a limit...all in all it was a fun day out there with beautiful weather to go along with it.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
