Must be rough going out at midnight.... I have to wait till 4 a.m. down at the governors opener on Leech... We have a dinner tomm night and another one on Friday night... Then a lunch on Saturday at Huddles and a Awesome dinner planned at Trapper's Landing(www.trapperslanding.com) next to Huddles on the south end of Leech... Did I mention between all that food that I will be fishing too....

Good luck,

Beef

Beef,

What have you been hearing about the fishing at Leech. My buddies and I went there for four years and stayed at Huddles. We haven't been there since they started eliminating the cormorants. Last week the Minneapolis paper said they are expecting a pretty good season based on the success of the last few years stocking program. Do you anticipate it returning to the good ol' days?

They say it will be a 10 year cycle to have it prime and ready to go... HOWEVER, I think this year we will see an awesome amount of 13-15 inch fish with some pigs mixed in.... Catching a lot of 19-26 inchers like the past will still take a few more years I THINK!!!!!! I'm anticapating a good to VERY good year on leech... But I'm hoping it could return to it's prime here sooner than later...

TC can you give my cell a call today after 3:45 but before 5:00 p.m. tonight... I have a few questions for ya....

Good Luck,

Beef

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
