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 have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
