St Louis River by Jay Cooke

5 posts in this topic

We are going to be camping at Jay Cooke next week and looking for some info.

I have never fished that area and am wondering if there is anything worth bring the rods for? And if so what is in there?

If you want to take the walk and go with some one. Find of the many trails that take you to the river and find some pools, lots and lots of small small mouth and a few nice ones. Some steep trails but you can have some fun. Small spinners with the small 2" gulps as trailers work well here.

I was up there last weekend and the water level is quite low. We didn't walk too far to survey the whole area, we wre looking for swimming places. We did find water that was 10-15' deep up stream a bit, bit I can't comment on any fishing.

Thanks guys!!! I think I will give it a whirl. I have fish the St. Louis down below, but not around the campground, never heard or seen anyone fishing around there either, so wasn't sure if it would be worth while to even bother. But what the hey, that's what fishing is about, right?

      Oh man, I forgot about the South Switch. I haven't been there in close to fifteen years. I doubt that it's changed.....maybe I'll head there tomorrow night!

      Anyone been out lately? I normally wait until the leaves start dropping but am getting the itch to get out pretty bad.

      Prices a little high there too....   Come on down to the switch or the crescent.  

      Didn't Bayview try the upscale dining thing a few years ago?

      Where are all the Duck reports from the almighty Pelican? 

      Did all this rain fill the lake back up?  I haven't driven by at all. 

      I bet the crappies and gills are growing nicely.   Soon enough.

      Yep it is the 3 S's - I just don't think a lot of people are going to be grouse hunting with a shovel - but not a bad idea.

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400. 

      Thanks for the Update, I think that I did see less birds out on Edwards as well later this summer. Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :)
