      Minnesota Fishing Report Clubs - ONLY 20 FREE MEMBERSHIPS Per Area - Join Today - FREE   03/08/2018

      Fishing Minnesota has added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. Initially we are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20 members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then Join Now! Some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

      I may be giving it a try next Sat. Seems like the best time is when it melts down a bit right before honey combing.  Not sure if they move in to eat all the craap felling through the ice but seems like they move in the bays more then. If at all some years?

      Here is my opinion, from 4 hrs away. There is no doubt pressure has increased.  I has to have an impact of some degree on the lake.   However, with the increase in pressure there has been regulation changes along with it.  With more to come I am sure. The spring river fishing really doesnt concern me much.  The reason why is the window of the bite is so short, and that only a small fraction of L.O.W's fish spawn there.  Although even with a 2 fish limit alot of fish are taken home.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Wadena County this spring. The data are being collected for the Wadena County Geologic Atlas, Part B (hydrogeology). The results build on the Part A (geology) information, which was produced by the Minnesota Geological Survey in 2016. DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2020, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available at Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is accepting public comments through April 18 on an environmental assessment worksheet (EAW) for the Kingsbury–Grassy Point Habitat Restoration Project, located in Highland Township in St. Louis County. The Kingsbury Bay–Grassy Point project sites are located at the upper end of the Duluth-Superior Port in the St. Louis River Estuary. The DNR proposes to mitigate contaminated sediments, legacy wood waste and excessive sedimentation to restore 240 acres of fish and wildlife habitat within a part of the St. Louis River Area of Concern. Detrimental materials will be removed, contained onsite or capped in place. Areas with excess sedimentation will be deepened and the clean materials transported and reused for shoreline improvements. Bay habitats that support productive Lake Superior marshes will be restored. A copy of the EAW is available on the Kingsbury-Grassy Point habitat restoration page. Additional copies may be requested by calling 651-259-5082. Copies are also available for public review at: Minnesota DNR Library, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155. Minnesota DNR northeast region headquarters, 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744. Hennepin County – Minneapolis Central Library, Government Documents, Second Floor, 300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55401-1992. Duluth Public Library, 520 West Superior St., Duluth, MN 55802. Superior Public Library, 1530 Tower Ave., Superior WI 54880. The EAW notice will be published in the March 19 EQB Monitor. Written comments on the EAW must be submitted no later than 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, to the attention of Kate Fairman, EAW project manager, Environmental Policy and Review Unit, DNR Ecological and Water Resources Division, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155-4025. Electronic or email comments may be sent to with “Kingsbury–Grassy Point EAW” in the subject line. If submitting comments electronically, include name and mailing address. Written comments may also be sent by fax to 651-296-1811. Names and addresses will be published as part of the EAW record. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
