How is the river looking upstream from Shakopee? It was really high here last night. So much for fishing this weekend.

Basically prepare yourself for at least moderate flood stage by early to mid next week, which means most all crossing in the South metro will be closed (Shakopee, Chaska, Jordan). Makato area got pummeled last night and that is all headed this way.

I'm not a happy camper as I have to cross the river every day.

I actually think it will make for some good late fall walleye action, but for the next couple of weeks...good luck is all I have to say grin

In Henderson, it is pretty much out of the banks now, or at least in the lower spots. I know they usually predict high, but lets hope it crests just short of road closures. The flood adds about a 50 mile round trip for my wife everyday.

yep, I sure hope the prediction service is high this time. I can't believe a 10ft wall of water is coming in 1-2 days shocked

If anymore than predicted we are looking at a top 5 flood since records have been kept.

I used to work about 5 minutes from my house in Chaska and would have to drive 40 minutes when it flooded. Luckily all my projects are on this side of the river. Let's just hope the predictions are wrong even though it looks like they got a ton of rain down south.

Mankato went up 3 feet from 11pm last night til 5am this morning. I am thinking we could break out the surfboards and ride this sucka!

Kato area spanked hard and its still coming down as the river levels are steadily shooting up. I went to Mankato this AM for a couple of hours and on the way back they had one lane closed south bound 169 due to a mudslide.

I can't get into my jobsite today because it is too wet. Maybe I should build an ark. I will put some rod holders on it and maybe it could be used as a ferry across the river.

I guess mother nature didn't like the way she decorated the river this spring and decided to do it again. womenz 29.gif

I like new spots, but I never got a chance to figure out the last new spots.

I just can't help but think how much fun it would be to get the kayak out in a day or two.

Better bring your wetsuit with!

Fun? Maybe! Dumb? yes! Be smart, be safe!

That's when stormwater flowing down the Minnesota River should reach the Twin Cities. Steve Buan, service coordination hydrologist with NOAA’s North Central River Forecast Center, based in Chanhassen, said it appears “very likely” that river crossings along the Minnesota from Jordan to Savage could be closed.

The agency Thursday was projecting that the Minnesota would rise 16 feet by Tuesday, to a point close to it fifth-highest level on record.

“Next week the south metro is going to be a problem,” Buan said. “This is extraordinarily unsual for this time of year.”

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.

      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?

      Yep crazy. 🤪 I played goalie in HS and my two grandsons play hockey now.  
    • gimruis
      Hockey gear in general is very expensive.  I was in a Pure Hockey last month to get my skates sharpened and while they were doing it I looked around at gear.  A new pair of CCM/Bauer customized skates can easily top 1000 bucks.  Then you need everything else.  It would be several thousand before you had everything.  And then your kid grows like a weed so you need to buy bigger gear.   Then there's goalie gear.  That's enough to buy a small boat.   Nothing cheap about that sport by any means.

      That's a good idea Mike.  But, my sweet wife who's never killed anything in her life, wants them all dead and their skulls on poles! 👹  🤣
