Better look at maps again...most of it was closed to hunting this summer. (Powerplant to Elk River) They did it under the radar made a bunch of people mad.

I used to hunt by snuffys landing in Becker behind the the powerplant then one day their was a observation platform there and got bummed out and kind of slacked off the river. man I miss that spot the hunting was awsome and never failed to see birds.

Jimbo80-did they just close it for the early season(overwater)? You can still hunt the river in that stretch during regular duck season, correct?

all hunting....more houses = more noise complaints. Also, people started hunting really close to town, so that don't help

not in that area but closer to the cities but still outside the no water zone...got chased off the river by an irritated land owner. She owned the property on the other side of the road. I wasn't breaking any rules just didn't want to get in to it. She kept saying I was on her property, I'm pretty sure she doesn't own the stream bed which is obviously exposed due to the drought. Now, am I off base here? First of all I take issue with what she was claiming to own...I'v hunted this spot for the last few years now and have seen others hunt it as well. Doesnt the tresspass law read...up to the high water mark...? Anyways...I left to avoid further confrontation. Not quite on topic...but thought you other river hunters could share some insight.

the high water mark is not a reliable rule, so I am told...

I always keep my feet wet while hunting the river or fishing the river and have always avoided prosecution.

we had a conversation about this awhile back on another board and others tended to agree.

I'm with sartell angler on this some of the property owners think that they own property all the way to the other side of the river at least thats the impression I get from some of the people when I last hunted the river.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
