Any Knife River Area action?

Recommended Posts

Huskie

I will again be heading up to Duluth this week end for one last shot at the big Lake. Dad and I will head out of the Knife River Marina Sat and Sunday mornings hopefully. Has anyone been having any luck in the area or will we need to run north aways before we put the lines in the water? Have any depths or colors been working better, earlier we had some luck with purple also we will run downriggers and put out 1 board, thanks.

Thanks outdoorranman, I got dad on some fish in the area's you mentioned on Sat. before the wind picked up, then on Sunday we found good water temps out in front and down towards Stony Point. Picked up two nice fish in the 7-8 lb. range one salmon and one laker plus a couple of smaller ones that we kept. Threw back a big steelhead as well. I think he is out again this morning in the same area and will let you know how he does, thanks again.

was out of knife river yesterday, trolled down to stony pt then back up past the island just to the north. could not find anything unless we stay in 180 ft or so. everything was down about 45 - 50 feet. caught 1 laker, 1 chinook, and three steelheads. sure did hate having to throw the last one back, was around five pounds or so. lost two other fish, one got off; the other broke the line, was using 17lb test, would have like to see what it was. only one came off the rigger all the other were on boards. a good day all in all.

Cool report, Sam. You know, if one didn't get away, I wouldn't know how to act.

The older I get, the more I seem to say: "I didn't need to land that thing that kept stripping line off my maxed-out drag — I just wanted to get at LOOK at the monster!" grin.gif

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
