Like to help ya but I'm not down that way when I go to the river,But up by GraniteFalls my 14'boat floats OK, but I know which channel to take in low water,some places get walked through.I guess it depends on your boat size and what you are willing to do.Last year it was lower than now.

Were you between the Granite dam and the Mn.Falls dam??or above the Granite dam?I personally think below the Mn.Falls dam and downstream is better.Never caught a flat above MnFalls dam,Have You??

Greetings fellas, I am in the process of moving to Redwood Falls this weekend. I am so looking forward to hitting the river down there and meeting some more FMers in that area.

Any info will be great. I am not sure where the landings even are yet.

How has the fishing been?

P.S. Tell the cheif to show you where the city boat landing is in morton. Just don't go to close! Sorry bout the lil joke but I am on the fire dept in Morton and know all about it.

Well with all this rain, maybe the river will start to go up a bit finely????????? Can always hope. I have not been able to even get a bite fishing so far since I have been here.. I think I am starting to go into withdrawls.... Wonder how far I have to go up or down river to find decent water levels? Any ideas? Might have to drive a ways.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      well I never?  Here's another. May have to give that a try.

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
