Kawishiwi river south of White Iron Lake

4 posts in this topic

I am planning several day trips during an up coming summer trip to the Ely area.

I am anticipating that someone may be able to provide me with information regarding the conditions of the Kawishiwi river between the dam at State Route 1 north to White Iron Lake. I am very familiar with the area where the river enters White Iron; but I have no idea of the conditions upstream to the south. My son had quite a catch and release experience two years ago and now at age nine he is begging for a chance to repeat the experience.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks, BowOut

Hey BowOut, welcome to FM. Great to have you here. grin.gifgrin.gif

I've fooled around along shore down from the dam on the river but haven't run or fished that stretch from a boat/canoe. However, it fluctuates quite a bit depending on how much water the power company is allowing through the dam.

No doubt you'll get more useful specific information from others here.

Thanks for the welcome stfcatfish.

I have been watching the site for years and through folks like you Steve, I felt that I could count on some feed back about the feasability of exploring this stretch with my son. He is past the point of fishing off the dock or weed beds and is now very excited about adventuring into areas like this and has the ability to deal with being shut out or simply enjoying the journey rather than having to catch fish one after the other. In addition he has learned to enjoy some fine fresh eaters and return everything else (including the trophy catch and release I indicated in the previous post)for someone else. I would just like him to have the same opportunities that I did to learn how to enjoy the out of doors.

Your information regarding the power company's water release rate is noted and appreciated.

Thanks again,

BowOut

My pleasure, BowOut. Wish I knew more, but someone else no doubt will.

It's great that your boy is chomping at the bit for a bigger experience. He'll never forget the trip.

My first trip to the Ely area was going on 20 years ago, and it's what cemented the idea that this was where I wanted to live.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
