Pokegama/Cross/Snake River

4 posts in this topic

Looking to fish more rivers this year and was curious if the Snake in between Pokegama and Cross held pannies? Can I go all the way from one lake to the other? If so, what the largest boat recommended to make the journey? Which general areas should I focus on? Any help is appreciated. Making a last minute decision where to head tomorrow and saw a few out on the snake in pine city. Thought maybe it'd be an option.

Any size boat on the Snake is fine. Expect to do quite a bit of no-waking. There are some large no-wake zones.

The Snake is ultra high right now. I doubt it would be your best panfish bet tomorrow. At normal water levels, the Snake holds panfish. But, it's not the world's best early season water.

I did see a couple of boats out in Pine City on the river. I think the water is still a bit high too, but you can get a boat through from Cross to Pokegema unless the water is really low. I am not sure if there are any pan fish biting now either, but there were people fishing. I drove by W. Rush yeasterday and seen some people with some smaller crappies in front of the store. They might be biting down that way. Good luck on werever you decide.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.

      I looked at cook, mn page didn't see the story.  both webpage   cookmn.com and the facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CookMn/ and the cook group   https://www.facebook.com/groups/396154887224760/ Not on Timberjay site either.     You can post a link by just copy/and paste the url from the bar in your browser into your post.
