      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 .

Once they close the (Contact Us Please) you are fine to run your boat in the Anoka stretch of hte Miss...if you want to minimize your risk dont go more than 1/2 mile up river from the bridge. The area from teh coon rapids (Contact Us Please) to the Anoka bridge is a "recreational pool". There is plent of water and plenty of smallies, eyes, cats and other rough fish!

People take bigger boats than yours on the miss and rum. I haven't been able to find a water depth/structure map of the any rivers really, but I would be interested in knowing about any too if they do exist. I did find this brochure/info from the DNR. The link on the DNR site was wrong, but I found the correct link through some trial and error.

http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/boatwater/metro_river_guide2006.pdf

This contains some maps of the miss, minnesota and st croix, including info on boat landings, darns, rapids, wake zones, etc but not anything on depth or structure.

It doesn't have much info on the rum, but if you put in at the anoka fairgrounds ramp, you can go about 4 miles north or so I believe and there is a sign that says the no wake zone ends. North of that, I heard it gets pretty shallow.

I do not want to upset anybody but why is the word Dam (a word usually associated with restricting water flow) Such as beaver Dam and the Hoover Dam a (contact us please)... and he was referring to the Coon Rapids Dam. unless of course you spelled it the other way... confused.gifconfused.gif

I was on a guided fishing adventure on pool 3, the guide, had very detailed maps of the river broken down in sections from the Army Corps of Engineers. Showing all the wingdams. It was really cool. It has been about 4 years since I was on that trip, cannot remember the guides name...shame on me. Very nice guy.

I do not know if they have anything up in the Anoka/Coon Rapids area, They may only have the maps detailed of this area for barge traffic? I will try and post soon.

Herman, just curious, but are you talking about the stretch of Mississippi that runs under the Champlin bridge, where the Rum runs into it? And if so, did you really mean there are plenty of 'eyes to be had?? That's awesome if you meant it, no one thinks (at least in my experiences) that there are any walleye worth targeting in this area and I mean I dont kill them out there but I get a couple here and there, I mean its part of the Ol' Miss, how could there not be any 'eyes!? I agree with the plenty of rough fish and smallies.. Makes for an entertaining trip thou! Is there any special regulations for a "recreation pool" or is that just what you call it?
