Mississippi River, Near Kellogg, Mouth of Zumbro River

Hello, anglers.

We are looking for a Golden Retriever that went missing around July 1 while its foster family was visiting a wildlife preserve on the western shore of the Mississippi. It's a large, low area just downstream of Lock and Dam 4 and across the river from Alma. Here's a map to the area:

Google Map

Morgan was rescued from a puppy mill in April. She is extremely shy of people, but likes other dogs. She was sighted a couple of times in the first month after she went missing, but has not been seen lately. A live trap was set, to no avail.

We are hoping that someone has taken her in--a nearby farmer or perhaps a family visiting the preserve and campgrounds. But of course, we would like to bring her home. She is a special needs dog that requires a specific kind of training to help her overcome the psychological damage from the puppy mill.

Morgan is microchipped and was last seen wearing a collar with identifying tags.

Here is more on Morgan:

If you know of anyone who picked up a stray Golden Retriever near the shore of the Mississippi or up the Zumbro River, please call our 24 hour emergency hotline:

Thank you for your patience with this off-topic post. We have exhausted the obvious search areas and now are just trying to get the word out to anyone who might have been in the area.

Devon, I hope you find Morgan. Did you check the Pioneer? And put up some posters in the supper club and campground. Check Kruger campground too. I'm sure she's fine. Who don't love a Golden right? If she's chipped I would hope who ever finds her get's her to a vet. I really hope you get her back.

Someone was driving around Oronoco in a van yesterday trying to find the owner of a Golden Retriever they had recently found. They stopped and talked to my wife for a while. Could have been from the madness of Gold Rush, or you never know, the dog could have followed the Zumbro all the way over. July 1 was a while ago.

Wow, you have to wonder about that lost Golden in Oronoco. Did your wife happen to see the dog? Or notice if it seemed excessively skittish? You're right--a dog can travel a long way in a couple of months.

I do foster for the rescue group from time to time, but Morgan was not my dog. Her foster is just heartsick over this and has spent weeks distributing flyers, talking to nearby residents, local authorities, etc. I'm sure she has covered the immediate area quite thoroughly. That's why we have branched out so far with our search--even to posting on fishing forums! blush.gif

Thank you for your kind support.

Oh, right. Yes, the foster combed the area pretty thoroughly, including the campground. I believe the dog was originally lost very close to that camping area.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?

      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
