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 ...

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.
