Hey! welcome aboard.

Yes there will be salmon in the rivers.

New Member umichjesse said it best.

"I won't share the names of the rivers but I really don't need to. The pinks will be in any river with enough water. 95% of the fishing is done within a half mile of the lake so it is only a matter of stopping your car and taking a look in the river. If the fish are there, you will see them. If you don't see any, hop in the car and check the next river. The dead give away will be all the cars parked next to the bridge.

Normally I am more willing to give out information, but the north shore tribs are so short that they get over crowded quickly. If it were a longer river like the Brule (Wisc) then I probably would name names.

Believe me, you WILL find pinks, and the exploration will make it that much more satisfying."

So those thinking about chasing salmon this weekend, we've had plenty of rain, the timing is just about perfect. The salmon will be in and you won't find a report saying so in so river is hot. That much you'll have to do for yourselves.

I'm not naming any rivers, but they do have a slight tint of pink running through them!

How long do the salmon usually run? Is a trip in early October worth it?

I couldn't resist this one but is a bear Catholic? I mean does the pope go in the woods? Well you get the point. Sorry, again, I couldn't resist.

The salmon run usually peaks last half of sept into the 1st week of oct. I have had good fishing into the last week or so of oct. But that was a while back and the runs just ain't what they used to be.

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
