Going to Grand Marais, can I river fish?

Recommended Posts

nate larson

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.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
