I had a pretty slow day, I hooked 3 fish over the course of the day, landed a brown around 20 inches, and then a chrome steelie around 26 inches. I lost another fish later in the day and decided to call it quits around 2 pm. I got the brown on a olive x legs pattern and then hooked both steelies on yarn. Water is quite muddy and is even worse today according to the flow charts. I'll be back later this week.

Hi guys,

I know some of you had asked for some pics if we had any luck, and I thought this would be a good thread to post them. My friend Jay (aka-EidesRX) and I met up with some friends for a nice traditional opener.

We caught a few fish in the morning and then retired to a small warming fire to cook some marinated venison. It was an excellent time. We didn't fish too hard, but managed a few fish, and more importantly got to see some good friends.

Awesome! Thanks for posting pics!

This spring isn't in the cards, but will have to make something work in the fall.

What were the crowds like up there?

It was really pretty crowded on Saturday. Then the river came up and turned off color on Sunday and the crowds were a little lighter, but the fishing wasn't as good for those who stayed.

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
