Yes, as long as they do not have a motor. and I do not know for sure if you are supposed to go all the way to Green because of the sanctuary. I have been up there a couple of times . We just stop at the sanctuary sign that is in the water and turn around.

sheephead 24 ,Games lake or nest lake Inlets or outlets,full of northerns and if you put on waders at games and walk down,its not deep you see walleye.

At nest inlet go past the bass up creek from bridge [Northwest inlet and walleyes start to show in their as well as northern.

Had to quit fishing both these for pannies as large fish have moved in and you just cannot keep them off line.

Should be one of better openers in years.

Also if you travel to Sakariason Lake,Swift -Kandi line road ,about 3 miles south of Suburg Supper club,ask Bootsie I did 9 Nortern in 9 casts opener afternoon 2 years ago.It was so windy we didnt put our boats in,tryed sloughs and backwaters everywhere,this spot was really good.

Also West Norway lake in waders with raps etc. is very good just troddin along .but this has been mostly for walleye before sunup.

I looked on a map, I didnt see sakariason lake, but I saw Sunburg and West Sunburg lake on the county line 2 or 3 miles south of Sunburg, is this the same lake you are talking about? thanks

sheephead24,I think east and west are the ones on tar,this lake is on both sides of gravel west of those two and I think that there is one more west before Monson.

So many locals call this one Sakariason,a freind has a hunting trailer out on it.

You can also put small to medium boats on it through season.

Just go 2 to 3 miles south from that supper club and I am sure you will find it.

we are going to try it Saturday afternoon about 3:00.

Good luck

I would try foot and willmar lake anywhere you have moving water. the northern population is pretty good out there with a chance of getting a monster.
