Heading up to the Iron Range this weekend, can anyone recommend a nice motel in the Quad Cities area?

What do you mean by nice? What are you looking for and what price range. There are a lot of low end to med end hotels/motels in the Virginia area. Only 2 upper end that I know of.

What part of the range will you be spending most of your time in?

In the 50(or less) buck range near Virginia, have to spend a week north of there on business. By nice I meant well kept. Thanks

PT73,

I'm on the range as I type this. I just went through Virginia this afternoon and I would suggest that you try the AmericInn in Mt. Iron right on Hwy 53. It sits right next to the Saw Mill bar and restaurant. There are a few other places to grab a bite to eat right next to that.

I'm guessing that they my be a little over the $50.00 range on the weekend but I'm not sure. As I said before it has many other places next to it and looks like a nice place.

Good luck and have a great weekend!!

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
