wingdam help

3 posts in this topic

New to the river. Hear a lot of Wingdam fishing, is there a way to find where these wingdams are, a map or actual way to see a wingdam there on the river? Also what is the best boat launch these days to get to where the fish are? Are the fish still down stream or up to the Ford (Contact Us Please) already?

On Pool 2 a lot of the wingdams have a buoy at the end of them. The Corp of Engineers also puts out maps of the river that have wingdams marked. Once you know what to look for you don't need a map. Just look for the current break over the top of the wingie. Walleyes don't all head for the Ford area. You can catch them all over the river all winter. I usually go out of the 494 ramp and seldom go farther upstream than the St Paul airport.

I fish walleye year round on Pool 2 and dont spend much time at all at the dam. There are much better areas without being around others!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.
