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
