Baudette to Clementson

6 posts in this topic

If you dump your boat in at Baudette, can you motor to Clementson area without any hazards or low water? Have always put in at Vidas or Frontier so just curious. Thanks

Stay on the correct side of the nav buoys near Silver creek, watch out for deadheads and you should be okay.

Nav buoys should still be in up there? Dutchman would probably know, I have'nt been upstream of the airport at all yet this fall.

Slammer,

Just above Silver Creek (3-4 miles above Baudette) on the US side, there are something like 19 rock piles and a row of pilings down the middle. There are Nav. buoys which direct you to the Canada side & as long as you stay between the buoys you'll be good to go.

There is a rock pile on the Canada side at the mouth of the Rapid River. You probably won't hit it but logs like to pile up on it so head down the middle there.

Watch for dead-heads even if you just ran the area 'cause there moving all the time. We've had level fluctuations of over 2 feet this week as the North wind stacks the water up in the river and then lets it go. Should break a lot of dead-heads loose.

Good Luck!

Thanks alot for the info guys. We might just play it safe and put in down the river some where. I have never fished between Baudette & Clementson so had no idea what was there. Thanks again!

Just a note on the buoys, the DNR usually pulls them sometime in October to retrieve them before ice-up. Might want to check with the DNR of Baudette, Royal Dutchman or Clementson Resort to verify if they have been removed. smile.gif

Not that it matters, but I believe the county is the one that pulls the channel markers, but the DNR office is usually in the know on this as well.

WAR EAGLE!!!

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
