North Fork Crow River Canoeable?

Recommended Posts

NorthWoodsGuy

Just wondering if anyone knows if any of the sections of the North Fork Crow River are canoeable. Would like to get out this Friday if possible.

Thanks!

From what I've seen in my wading there will be some spots that'll be shallow maybe a few portages (dragging the canoe over sand). Check the dnr website they have info on the route probably including where the flow should be at for canoeing.

Thanks T-Water. I did check the DNR website and it states low is classified as below 3' and the current reading is 1.88' so I figured it was pretty low. Just looking for some first-hand accounts.

Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the info Brandon. It appears my canoe trip will have to wait until next year. Maybe I'll just grab my waders and see what I can see and catch a fish or two in the process.

Thanks again.

Now you're talkin'! Wading can be a blast on this river. I ussually spend several days a year fishing the crow. My recs would be to not fish after a rain (gets very silty 0 visibility) walk up stream and throw shallow running and topwater lures. I generally use big and bright. It can also be helpful to not fish while the sun is high the fish depend on shade for ambushing. I've only fished the areas south of Annandale and Maple Lake but I'd assume most of the river has some solid fishing. Good luck and let us know!

Thanks for the tips T-Water. With this rain, I'm sure it's going to be quite muddy tomorrow. But hey, maybe I will get the canoe out. It's all good! wink.gif

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
