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.

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,

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).  
    • Sushilicious
      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.
    • Rachelkate21
      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!
    • redlabguy
      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan
