Go to the MN Bookstore, can be accessed through the DNR webpage and pick up some contour maps. I have copies from Sartell to Little Falls. The area above the Blanchard dam is deep and has some mid river structure that looks real good. I have only fished it a couple times, but have never caught anything. The area around the Swan River inlet is supposed to be good. Last time I was there, it had good weed growth.
I am not very good at fishing rivers. I think I need to change my approach out there. I live about 300 yards from the Mississippi just north of Sartell, but am far from a master of this waterway.
I here every Fall there are some bruisers caught up by Little Falls, but not sure where. The nice thing is the river is pretty much void of damage causing obstacles out there.

I have only fished the area atime or two with limited results, but I do have a good story about Muskies in the area!

My older brother was fishing for walleyes below the Blanchard dam i do believe it was and he was standing on a cement embutment, he got a snag and upon jerking it free, a Muskie hit the little minnow that must have still been attached, and jerked my bro off the cement piece and he broke his leg! Not a compound, but a simple break. He hobbled and hopped and fell and hobbled somemore, up and down river and he landed the fish!
It was 25 plus pounds and he had it mounted.

The fish came first, then he went and had a cast put on his leg! A real trooper!

      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.

      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.

      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!
