      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

South of the dam, the river is really shallow in several places, even with the spring run off. Your best bet for walleyes is to fish right under the dam, as there is a 25 foot hole where the walleyes love to stack up. If you boat there, there is a public access about 1/2 a mile south of the dam near the cemetery. Just stay close to the east bank and expect to fight some current to get to the dam.

North of the dam, a lot of people fish under the County Road 3 bridge, as there is a river bend there. (Just make sure to bring bug repellent). The river is much deeper north of the dam, so I would think that almost any river bend would have a chance of walleye. For this part of the river, use the Rice Lake/Lum Park access.

God luck

The better walleye bite and quantity will be above the d a m and safer to navigate your boat if you use the Luma Park access. Below the d a m it's so shallow that you WILL take out your prop and or break something. The water is lower now then I have ever seen it becuase this time of the year it's up at least 3 feet or more and even with this rain I don't think it will help.

Good luck

Snake,

If you click on the link, you will see a topo map of Brainerd. When you locate the word 'brainerd", look for a major road that goes traight north from the "r" in "Brainerd". This is where state Highway 25 ends and County Road 3 begins. As you take this road through town, you will eventually pass Wasau paper mill on the left. As you keep going, you will go over the County Road 3 bridge - on the right is Rice Lake, and on the left is the dam.

The Lum Park access is on Rice Lak, though you have to take Hwy 210 to get there.

Based on what you have stated, it sounds like you will be fishing upstream of the dam, so you should be okay . .

Here is the map: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/maps/tomo.html?col=71&row=115&layer=100k&size=3

There can be some solid fishing north of the dam. Rice lake is a solid panfish lake but I wouldnt suggest it for much else. Something i would suggest is below the dam, but not by boat. This past summer, when the water was extremely low, I would walk along the shorelines and fish using topwater lures for pig smallies. Just fishing in the summer i caught two 20"ers and a bunch of other decent ones. Just something to consider.

Thanks for your help guys, I pretty sure I know where the dam is now. So it sounds like I should fish the dam.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
