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!

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
