Anybody have any info about the blackhoof river east of Barnum? I hear there are brook and brown trout. Heading to a buddies cabin in the area and are thinking about trying it out. Thanks in advance.

fished it neaerly 10 times, there are browns, brooks, and rainbows. (by the way the rainbows are all wild steelhead so they must be released). the head of the blackhoof is very muddy, due to the clay banks, try to find the clearer faster water like near the public acces road off of 103. if you go ina t a place where there is lots of fishing pressure try to go farther up/down stream, sice there will be more untouched water and bigger fish. it might be a little more difficult to fish considering it is soon to spawning time for the brookies and browns, so look for runs behind the spawning redds, where the rainbows and late spawning brookies and browns will be eating the eggs downstream. Good luck!

oh yeah, try to fish upstream because you will wash the clay and dirt ahead of you if fishing downstream, dirtying the pools you are trying to fish

Does this river make it into the big lake through the nemadji? Does this river get lake runs? too far inland?

i have spinfished and flyfished it and yes the blackhoof flows into the nemadji which flows into lake superior. not alot of steelies make it to the blackhoof, but obviously theres enough to sustain a natural population

i have an old book on steelie fishing from the early 70's and it lists the blackhoof/nemadji as one of the best in the state. I think it used to take quite a run. never fished there myself though.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
