River Near Rice Lake/Lum Park

4 posts in this topic

Since all the water around the north metro has suddenly gotten so skinny I thought I would make a final smallie trip to Brainard/Lum Park this weekend. Not asking for spots or advice but for water conditions - is there enough water to float a boat from the Lum Park landing and travel up the river from there or has that been drawn down as well?

Would really appreciate the feedback. Thanks,

Daze Off

Stopped by the Crow @ Dayton today, highest it's been since early summer. Down here, keeps dropping.

Wow, that's hard to believe when just upstream at Elk River it is about the lowest I have seen it....

Also heard it is low near Anoka - Rum has been dropped for the season already so flow will be reduced.

Hey, Daze-Off, I'm renting a cabin on the Miss, first week in June. Never fished the area. Any info on what I might expect? Thanks.

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
