I will be staying at Rugged River resort the week of 6/2-6/9. Wondering if anyone can give me any info that might help on fishing this stretch of the river. I fish the St.Croix and Miss. south of Clearwater a lot. Just wondering about any areas to watch out for, upriver/downriver. Not looking for your honey holes, just something to get started. Thank you in advance.

I was out there on last thursday and we did great on gills and crappies. You will be staying right next to one of the best points on the river for all types of fish. Go out the little canal there and first point on the right. Usually always a boat there catching something. I've caught smallies walleyes pike and suckers and just about everything else that swims in a river on that point. As far as how far to go up when heading upriver there are huge wires over the river and just past those there is an oxbow called little rabbit lake also very good. a few miles past that you better start watchin the locator. Have'nt been up that far this year and i can't exactly tell you how far up you can go.

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
