Fished Saturday for Silvers near Franconia and Taylors Falls. Water was really high, cold and fast - which surprised me after the stable dry week we just had. I caught one little walleye - no silvers or crappies. I'll skip the crowd on opener, probably fish pool two instead. I'll get serious about fishing the St Croix after next week.

Lund 18,

There is a boat landing just north of down town Stillwater. The access is free, however you will need to show up extremely early to find a parking spot. You can also put in at Beanies just south of the 94 bridge, i think they charge $10.

Yup, I'll be heading up north of TF for wally action. There are several nice drifts north of the dam a few miles that I'll try. Last year jig and plastic shad tail worked well vertically jigging while floating w/the current.

I too was below the TF dam fishing white bass this past Saturday. I was w/a buddy in his 17' alumacraft. One fish in about two hours... not too good. However, I was undeterred and went back on Sunday. Eight fish, including a monster crappie and a couple of dink walleyes. Still wasn't outstanding, but better than nothing! I agree that the water was surprisingly high, about two feet up from the previous weekend. Why? I don't know. The good thing is that the water temp was up this past week from 41F to 54F. Pretty significant rise in temp I'd say!

Good luck this weekend.

You're probably looking for Rush Creek landing. Yup, Rush City exit, go East through town and follow the road out of the east side of Rush City. There is another road, wish I could tell you the name of it. Get on TerraServer, look up Rush City and go east to find the road. This is dirt ramp I believe so small boats only, I'm guessing. I also don't know what the water depth is like there. Somebody else'll have to speak up with more info. Best I can do. Good Luck.

I'll be out there Saturday.
Were starting in Bayport and working North.
I hope we do as good as last year 9 keepers many dinks with a few sheepskins and silvers mixed in to keep you baiting the hook.

Good Luck,

Ferny.

I've never taken a boat down to Prescott so I'm not sure but I just got inform that you can launch at Hastings and its free. I usually fish from shore at the park on the northwest side of the bridge.

Eyes 1850,

In Prescott they have envelopes you put your money in and then you rip of the tag part and put it on your dash of your truck. I beleive it is around $7-$10. I have heard you can contact the city of prescott and get a season pass. You can always put in in hastings and motor down it is free. Or there is a nice ramp at bluffs park (washington county park) just south of afton on the minnesota side. Very nice ramp in a protected bay and nice park also. $20 a year pass good for all washington county parks. Last year on the first tuesday of every month the park was free to use not sure if they are doing that again but i would imagine they would.

crappie getter,
