OutdoorMN News - DNR accepting comments on proposed stream restoration for Spider Creek

1 post in this topic

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released and is accepting comments on an environmental assessment worksheet for a proposed stream restoration project on Spider Creek, located in St. Louis County. Release of the EAW marks the start of a 30-day public comment period. 

U.S. Steel proposes to restore the pattern, profile, and dimension of an approximately 2,660-foot channelized reach of Spider Creek. The project would reposition the existing straightened stream channel to restore about 4,050 feet of channel. The restoration is designed to ensure sustainable stream characteristics and to improve riparian and floodplain vegetation.

A copy of the EAW is available on the DNR website.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
