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.

Thanks for the help guys, I think I'm going to look elsewhere today. I'll post results for wherever I end up!

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
