Kawishiwi river south of White Iron Lake

Recommended Posts

BowOut

I am planning several day trips during an up coming summer trip to the Ely area.

I am anticipating that someone may be able to provide me with information regarding the conditions of the Kawishiwi river between the dam at State Route 1 north to White Iron Lake. I am very familiar with the area where the river enters White Iron; but I have no idea of the conditions upstream to the south. My son had quite a catch and release experience two years ago and now at age nine he is begging for a chance to repeat the experience.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks, BowOut

Hey BowOut, welcome to FM. Great to have you here. grin.gifgrin.gif

I've fooled around along shore down from the dam on the river but haven't run or fished that stretch from a boat/canoe. However, it fluctuates quite a bit depending on how much water the power company is allowing through the dam.

No doubt you'll get more useful specific information from others here.

Thanks for the welcome stfcatfish.

I have been watching the site for years and through folks like you Steve, I felt that I could count on some feed back about the feasability of exploring this stretch with my son. He is past the point of fishing off the dock or weed beds and is now very excited about adventuring into areas like this and has the ability to deal with being shut out or simply enjoying the journey rather than having to catch fish one after the other. In addition he has learned to enjoy some fine fresh eaters and return everything else (including the trophy catch and release I indicated in the previous post)for someone else. I would just like him to have the same opportunities that I did to learn how to enjoy the out of doors.

Your information regarding the power company's water release rate is noted and appreciated.

Thanks again,

BowOut

My pleasure, BowOut. Wish I knew more, but someone else no doubt will.

It's great that your boy is chomping at the bit for a bigger experience. He'll never forget the trip.

My first trip to the Ely area was going on 20 years ago, and it's what cemented the idea that this was where I wanted to live.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓

      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
