I fished it one day in early June right at the (Contact Us Please) near VDL, to the rapids about a mile down. Wouldn't recommend that area - a couple snakes, one big smallmouth follow, and that was it. There are a couple musky in that area, but not enough action overall, and a lot of boulders to ram into.

That's pretty good, I spelled dam wrong and got called on it by this site. Anyway, I fished from the DAM near Vermilion Dam Lodge until the rapids about a mile down....

Sue,

The stretch between two mile and eight mile creek is best for fishing. Mostly smallies and northerns. Good numbers and a lot of fun. You will likely have it to yourself. Your resort should have a canoe that you could use. Drop in at two mile creek and canoe into the river, would make a great day trip.

i used to guide the area doug just talked about...you can catch alot of walleyes and some jumbo perch.....also the pike and northern and i would imagine there are those muskies in there too......the trip up two mile creek can be hard on a prop...take an extra.....there are ribbons to mark a shallow spot....but the water may be down...so its all real shallow....just take your time.....bugs may also be a factor....can get alot of deer flies and such......doesnt sound great ....but it can be of some fun in there....depends what you want to put into it....

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.  
    • eyeguy 54
      yep, lotta lead on the sippi from this guy. LOL  sometimes I do a simple drop shot setup. tie a #4 hook on and leave about a foot or less of line. then just pinch the split shot on bottom and jig away. didnt have to tie on so many hooks.  
    • MinnowBuckets
      Nice report! Glad to see there are others still getting out on the river too. I need to get simpler in my presentation and use the fathead/split shot technique more often. I can’t afford to lose 3 swimbaits or rapalas each time out. 😭
    • eyeguy 54
      dont talk yourself out of it. might hit a couple spots again this coming week for fun. Over the years I have had off and on luck till thanksgiving time. Couple pics from this fall.  I just like a fathead on 1/8 oz jig or a plain hook with a split shot. Quite the battle when the 28 inch northern tried to eat the bass. It got stuck on the jig so reeled them both in. Ran into the current two times. Fight city. LOL
