CR dam to anoka, boatable?

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

Does anyone know if the area between the Coon Rapids dam and the Anoka/Champlin bridge is OK right now for a prop boat? I have a 17' Lund Explorer and would like to get out on the river. Thought this area might not be too low. I'm looking to chase some smallies, which are hopefully hanging out somewhere I can reach them.

Thanks in advance,

Bob

Well, that's all we caught for the most part, "smallies." Our largest fish was 17.5". We did pick up quite a few that look promising for future years. Nice to know the river is extremely navigable in that stretch. I remember the work on the dam last year and heard there were some issues with it this season, but plenty of thick water to get around in there. But that's about as far as I can go without owning a prop company grin.gif
