Questions about "the run"....

7 posts in this topic

Hi all,

My brother and I may be in the Silver Bay area this coming weekend, 9-16 and 9-17. We're in desperate need of information, so any input would be greatly appreciated. A few questions;

1. Are the pinks and cohos running this week, say in the Baptism River on north?

2. We have been known to carry float tubes onto remote lakes for some good catch and release fishing. Are there any decent (any species) opportunities in the area?

Thanks greatly,

Ben

Leap frog your way up the North Shore checking the rivers.

Start at the mouths and work to the first barriers. Sucker, Knife, Stewart, Split Rock, Baptism, Cross and Poplar.

Bean and Bear out of Silver Bay are inland trout lakes, check the regs out first.

Thanks for the input. As a rule of thumb, when do the salmon run? Also, do steelhead make a fall run?

Thanks,

Ben

Pray for rain or you will be casting spoons on the shore for loopers/lakers/salmon.

The steelhead really don't make much of a fall run. You will catch some but really the main, and in my opinion most fun time to fish the north shore, is in the spring. Another river to look at for salmon is the cascade although from the sounds of it all the rivers are pretty crappy right now. It has been a tough summer on all the fish after that smolt kill and then the water isn't rising. Lets hope for some rain.

The fish are ready they are there it's just a matter of them getting into the rivers for the mostpart. As for the general rule of thumb...rain is good, lack of rain is no good. Right now is not so good. Should get rain this weekend hopefully enough to flip the switch. You might be in luck if we get enough and just leap frog as stated above and you will find fish. Good luck!

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.

      I'm a local and yes we boycott the place. Friends have been told that they aren't wanted there that they only want the tourist business. Wife and I boat to Wolf Bay when we go out. We live 2 miles from the landing and wish it was still run by Jack.

      Well I made a decision to put the trolling rods away and go do some jigging.   It seemed to be a good one.  I concentrated on rocky transition areas.  I had three slot fish in an hour.  Went back in for some VC pizza and picked my kids up and went back out for a evening trolling run and that produced as well.  You have to love this lake.

      We have friends up and they wanted to take us out for dinner, via the boat.  With the wind, the only place was the landing, I tried vetoing It, but lost out.  Had $12.00 burger and fries.  Very good and the service was fast-only 8 others in the dinning area and a few at the bar.  I checked the prices on the wings-$16.00 for 1-1/2lbs.  Del, they had a pretty good burger menu.  I asked about the 20% off deal and the waiter blew me off and said he didn't know anything about it.  I asked who I should talk to, he said the manager or the owner.  We paid the bill and left without asking.  I liked it a few winters ago when they had ,25 wings and 2.00 beers.

      First off I am not a waterfowl hunter, so this info is second hand.

      Here in the Morrison/E.Todd cty area, the hunt really seemed slow considering the weather conditions.  Although a few birds were shot early in morning the day seemed slow by most accounts around here.

      Good luck to all.
