Going to Grand Marais, can I river fish?

8 posts in this topic

I am leaving for Grand Marais this afternoon. Does anyone know if there are any rivers up there that I can legally fish? Doesn't really matter to me what species. Just looking to wet a line. I have been looking at the Fishing Regs but I can't really figure it out. I am not very familiar with how things work up there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

If your refering to the northshore streams then yes, you can fish them. It's continuous up until the posted boundaries. However there are special regulations/seasons on steelhead and brook trout. My guess though is you won't find much for open/running water.

I dont know much about the inland stuff right now but you can fish the lake superior tribs below posted boundries...only thing is they would be frozen...maybe cast into the lake around the mouth but thats about it.

Right now you'd have better luck in your bath tub. It's just not time yet. If you're set on doing any fishing grab the longest light/med action spinning rod you have and some light line (4-6lb). Find open water near a river mouth or pier/breakwall and throw some casting spoons or float a crawler off bottom. That'll probably be your best chance of maybe getting a fish up there. Even then it's not a high yield opportunity. As long as you know that ahead of time, it's all godd, right? As with any out of town outing it wouldn't hurt to talk to some folks for a second or two at the local bait shops or elsewhere to get a feel of what's going on in the area. If you really have the itch to get in the streams head back up in may.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
