I have a farm up there 2 miles south of Thief Lake and borders Agassiz Refuge. I was up there last week and the water levels looked pretty stable or a little lower this year. However, I didnt see any birds, but Im sure they are around. I can give you another report this week or next week.

norwall,

Sorry I don't have any info for you, just wanted to comment that I'm watching too, but I'm guessing we won't hear much until people get up there. We go in October each year as well and are already planning the trip. I'm not sure if they are getting the recent rains, but if it's low now it seems like there is a decent chance that will change in the next month or so.

i work in trf everyday, and although i haven't been out to theif lake lately, the water levels here should be fine. We've got a couple of bigger rains that have kind of saved the summer. --we could use another shot right now though........

I was out in the area for a couple days, checked out Thief Lake. The water looked to be the same from last year, or else little lower but the access seem to hold some good water to get out there, but i dont hunt it or know how deep the water is to get to the lake. As in Duck reports, lots flying around but saw some on the lake, most flying in and feeding in wheat/barley fields. Not much to show for honkers yet.

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
