I'll take a look today. Any location in particular? The runoff should get it going pretty soon as the ground is still frozen and should all flow in.

Hey Dan

Thanks, I like from the Dam about 1/2 mile down stream, get some real big crappies out of there once the water starts to flow, do you fish it much?

I haven't the past few years. Before that I found some spots in the spring where you could get a dozen walleyes in no time and that was a blast, but most weren't big enough to keep....I'm not sure if I'd keep them anyway.

Although the spring flow should be about done by the time they start on the new dam, it'll be interesting to see what that does to the river while and after they finish.

I'll take a drive over there today and see how it looks. I haven't paid much attention to it lately and drive by it everyday. It may take a few days before the melt gets down this far too.

Not much happening. The stretch below the dam is still frozen and it may be a while before the water starts running.

Thanks Dan,

Maybe after this warm up it will be moving by next weekend! laugh.gif

Yeah, I could see that being a possibility with the warm weather continuing. I'm guessing it'll take a while for the water above the lake to get down this far anyway.

Well i went I tried the Crow but wasn't successful. Tried several spots on both sides of the river from the dam all the way to behind Provesta. Didn't have one bite but it was sure noce to cast the long rods again. I will be trying it again tomorrow. Hopefully it will get a little better. Most of the ice is off and the water is flowing really good. If anybody has some free time tomorrow and wants to go down there i will be there at some point during the day.

Fish for the Crappies at this time of year and then the walleyes and northerns when you can fish for them again.

Mrcarp - I know how you feel. I go there with Carverfisherman once in a while. He hauls in fish and I give up offerings to the tackle demons.

I am going to try to get out there this weekend. Will have to work it around work but there should be time in the evenings. Is there open water by that culvert between campbell and the river yet. Had some decent luck there in years past.

Yes it is open there. You will be able to fish it. I have also caught some nice fish there as well.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
