carverfshr, there has been lots of reports of good bite from Prescott up north to Stillwater. I haven't tried north of Stillwater in a few weeks, haven't seen any reports either. I've been thinking of trying once more before next year. Lots of sauger on the river, good numbers of eyes if you can find them.

Bluffs Regional Park is probably the closest launch to you. Going up the River you can launch in Afton at the Windmill Marina, just south of 94 at Beanie's at Maui's, in Bayport at the Bayport Boathouse or north of Stillwater from the DNR launch at Boomsite Landing. Not sure if there is a launch south of Bluff's on the MN side or not.

Good luck!, let us know how you do.

It's been like two/three weeks since I fish the bank of Interstate Park...had been catching some undersize walleye's in the shallow...Live bait - small/medium suckers under slip bobber got me my keepers. Fatheads lindy rigged works too, but too many itty bitty ones and those mudd puppies are active voracious. So slip bobber to avoid mudd puppies. grin.gif

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
