I didn't know there were any fish below that dam anymore. When I was a kid it used to be great place to fish...I used to catch bullheads up to 2 pounds there, lot's of sunnies and crappies, big perch, lot's of hammer handles, and a few largemouths. Then 1 year, nothing! Then again the year after. Haven't been there since...and that's been about 10 years or so. Would be nice if it's been rejuvenated.

I have seen about everything caught there. A 10Lb Muskie and even a stringer of 5 decent walleyes. this has been about 2-3 years. I have never fished it myself but seen a lot.

It seems to me that its really shallow below

the dam. Theres better holes in that river might have to

wade to get to them but its well worth the effort.

Is Kost connected with the St. Croix somehow? A few years ago I caught a pretty big crap there with a long @ss lamprey stuck to it. Those lampreys are freaking ugly and scary. crazy.gif

The kost dam is on the sunrise river, and yes it flows into the st. croix. So yeah, there could be all kinds of stuff swimming around in there.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.
