Finding a creek?

5 posts in this topic

I was just wondering if there is anyway to find a creek that is on the dnr web site but is not posted on it.

I ran into a similar situation last year when trying a find a trout creek to take my nephew fishing at. I ended up contacting the DNR for directions and they were more than helpful. They also told me about other streams in the area that I had not considered. There is one small creek outside of Detroit Lakes that I have tried to find but just can't seem to locate inspite of a map, good verbal directions, a sign marking the management area and a paved parking lot and trail in the area. Although we came across what appeared to be a small creek (a few inches deep) we walked quite aways and couldn't find anything remotely resembled a creek that might have fish in it. Anyone know of this creek that could give me better directions blush.gif

Thanks!

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
