I've been there one time and it was last year. I used the Hwy 6 launch. We caught some smallies and a walleyes.

Sorry, it's a nice little river up there. Better when the water is lower. It's a little milk chocolate looking. I think there are more walleyes in that part than smallies. But I have only been there once. I'd like to go back and prolly will sometime this summer.

Do you have a boat?

I used to fish the 6/11 area often. Some fair smallie water up stream. Several areas with wing dams & eddies when low.

As Ebass said, A few 'Eyes in the mix also.

Down from the 6/11, the Pine comes in. Nice water up the pine for a few miles and at the confluence.

What part of the 'sippi are you looking at fishing? And what do you want to catch? I live in Riverton and I run the section from Riverton to the hwy 6 bridge.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
