Blackhoof River

4 posts in this topic

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

I've fished it. It definitely has fish, but I wasn't all that impressed with the fishery. Pretty remote for being close to Duluth and Cloquet, and nice scenery.

It also gets a run of steelhead. Good trout water, but remote and difficult to traverse. Bring a shotgun, too ...

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
