I'm too chicken to fish on a river. But that's just me.

Hey Wheelierida

Theres not really any backwaters from South of Clearwater to Monticello. The ice would not be safe at all in this area, to much current. The only large back water area that I know of is south of Clearwater, you may be able to ice fish this area, but i've never heard of anyone that does.

Why ice fish north of the nuke plant? Fish the open water just to the south.

Wait, is there any good open water fishing just south of the plant?

Thats a great idea! you'd think the fish would be active in that unsesonably warm water?

The smallies south of the nuke plant are not active wink.gif J/K if the plant is discharging fishing can be very good, if its not then its like anywhere else in the winter ( a crapshoot) but imho its still better then ice fishing! Your best presentations are gonna be slow I mean real slow (tubes, jig & grub, and even the occasional jig & pig or jig & no pig will catch fish)

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
