North Fork Crow River Canoeable?

7 posts in this topic

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

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
