Opener is very overlooked. I have fished early, when it is elbow to elbow, fishing out of Birchdale or Frontier. I have then fished the opener in the same spots and only have a few cars in the lots and do VERY well. I think everyone has their spots for opener where they have been going for years so the river is overlooked as a opening weekend spot...but I think with the warmer water temp in the river, you can actually do better than on many of the lakes that early.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
