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......
