How is the snake river for bass fishing large and small mouths between Pokagama and Cross. Is there a lot of boat trafic. Is it worth hitting somtime between bass opener and mid June. I would like to hit it at sun up and slowley work it with top water and crank baits with a little of plastic in there all the way to the Cross Lake landing.

I don't know about the other 2 species but you can pound the stripers/white bass out of that streach.

I've caught some bass (both species) in that stretch. There is lot's of boat traffic also, most of the stretch is a no wake zone though. You'll probably catch more pike than anything. Any backwater areas are good for crappies as well. I've caught some dandy 'eyes, sunnies, and silvers there. Off the main channel the river weeds up pretty quickly, so buzzbaits and weedless spoons have always been good for me.

I'm pretty sure there aren't any stripers in there. If there was I would cancel my trip to Connecticut next month. There's both smallies and largemouth in there but I'd skip the topwater baits near opener and stick to plastics and shallow cranks/jerkbaits.

No stripers, but some big whities in there. The bass fishing can be pretty decent. Far more largemouth than smallmouth in the stretch you're talking about.

Do the white bass ever school up on the snake? I've only caught individuals.

Rarely. I can only remember one time where I have caught multiple fish in succession on the river. I use to get into schools out on the lake, but that seems to be increasingly rare. However, all the whities I have caught in recent years have been big ones. 15"+ fish.

How about snake north of Mora on Hwy. 3? I got a cabin right next to there anybody fish that strech, I imagine you need either canoe or waders

I've fished various access points upstream of mora and got the typical smallies, 'eyes, and pike. Nice size to the 'eyes though (up to 4 lbs).

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
