Hey! welcome aboard.

Yes there will be salmon in the rivers.

New Member umichjesse said it best.

"I won't share the names of the rivers but I really don't need to. The pinks will be in any river with enough water. 95% of the fishing is done within a half mile of the lake so it is only a matter of stopping your car and taking a look in the river. If the fish are there, you will see them. If you don't see any, hop in the car and check the next river. The dead give away will be all the cars parked next to the bridge.

Normally I am more willing to give out information, but the north shore tribs are so short that they get over crowded quickly. If it were a longer river like the Brule (Wisc) then I probably would name names.

Believe me, you WILL find pinks, and the exploration will make it that much more satisfying."

So those thinking about chasing salmon this weekend, we've had plenty of rain, the timing is just about perfect. The salmon will be in and you won't find a report saying so in so river is hot. That much you'll have to do for yourselves.

I'm not naming any rivers, but they do have a slight tint of pink running through them!

How long do the salmon usually run? Is a trip in early October worth it?

I couldn't resist this one but is a bear Catholic? I mean does the pope go in the woods? Well you get the point. Sorry, again, I couldn't resist.

The salmon run usually peaks last half of sept into the 1st week of oct. I have had good fishing into the last week or so of oct. But that was a while back and the runs just ain't what they used to be.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.
