Thanks fishin. Is the water out of the banks by the dam? Is the landing open?

Nope it does not look too bad, as far as the depth of the water, but the current is moving pretty good yet. The landing is open though.

I was down there this afternoon, talked to a few guys fishing, they all were having a tough time, I think the water is still to high and running to fast, but it's getting closer.. Least the season doesn't close like the Rainy situation, made the mistake of going up there last weekend. Won't be long now just need to string a few days of sun together

Yep It looks low enough now, so I would tell anyone that it is worth a shot now. I would say it is as low as it was before the mini_flood. Let er buck!

Yup... some Sun would = more river spring walleye Fun. They need some sun on their backs in the shallows to get things rolling again. The cooler water temps helped to clean up the clarity a bit, mixed blessings I guess.

A week of mostly sunny sure would help.

Water's still fairly high, but the fishing was decent. Nothing very big, but got walleyes between 12 and 17 inches. Not fast and furious, but decent fishing. Managed to get my three 10 year old nephews a few fish, which was fun.

Another Red report- my bro and a couple buddies fished the Red yesterday. They managed about a dozen walleyes, a bunch of goldeyes, a rock bass, and a white bass. A nice hodge podge to keep them busy. Nothing big though. We're still looking to put a big pig in our boat this Spring and I'm hoping this Fri is the day to do it! We'll see...
