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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
