Well not a lot of fish but nice. Tried to get my son on a nice picture fish but I had the luck today. 19 1/2 inch smally and a 21 inch eye both on a Mepps. Cruddy day so we came home early.

All nice fish. What stretch of the river were you on? I was between the coon rapids dam and river park and only saw one other boat for the day.

I like to fish the stretch from the beaver islands all the way up to Rivers Edge north of Sartell. I hope to explore more towards Clearwater this summer.

wow those are nice fish! So do you fish on the top side of the dam? Where do you put your boat in? My friend and I fish the dam from shore and we are thinking of putting in my boat just wondering the best place to put it in.

My son got his biggest smally today. A nice 18 incher. BIG smile!! The access spots are below the dam, up by Cathedral high there is one, Wilson Park, north of Sauk Rapids, and north of the papermill. TONS of rock between Wilson park and the Sartell dam. If you go there be very carefull or it's prop time.

Well, we got out a couple of times and picked up some nice fish. But when it gets right down to it.... it doesn't matter how many I catch its this guy that is important to me. My son said after he caught this 18 incher "Well that's my first bigger one for the season" Anyway, between breaks in the rain he picked this one up on a senko rigged wacky style. We'll see if this works... Hmmm....still trying.... again??

Too much fun. Nice fish eyeguys son!! We obviously were both out there today. Amazing fishery isn't it... All 60 miles of it. We took a few more snap shots today... just had to post a few. We ended up with well over 40 fish in the boat between the three of us, what a great way to spend the day together.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip. 
    • redlabguy
      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!

      maybe he didn't see the question yet? google is your friend. this one sounds like its for vets that are at the VA.  not sure. Check out Take a Vet Fishing online.  couple events coming up. not by Duluth tho.
