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......

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
