St Croix State Park area (St. Croix River)

I might try to get up there this week. I would rent a canoe and take the shuttle up to Thayers landing and paddle back. Is there any walleye in that stretch? Fished it once before and did well on smallies but didn't think there were any pools deep enough for walleye.

Anyone that can give me some tips of walleye fishing up in that stretch?

there are walleye all the way up to the gordon dam in wi...... and prolly above that, though i haven't caught any up there...... i'm sure it's better the further down you go, but they are in the stretch you are wondering about.... just a matter of findin' em...... in rivers they don't need as much water as most people think.....

Maybe I'll have to put a little more focus on them next time I'm up there. I'll try to make a cast or two with a walleye bait and see what tugs on the line.

just look for the slacker water (not still) next to the swift current below riffles...... mostly smallies, but occasionally you'll stumble on walter...... slip bobbers or yer favorite plastic worked slow...... if the light isn't too bright i suppose you could jig 'em if you find a deeper hole......

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
