Poke-Snake-Cross question(s)..

Recommended Posts

LegattoAD

I know there's a no wake zone coming out of Pokegama and into the Snake, my question is how far downstream does it go? I remember seeing another bouy down by the first backwater area on the right (facing downstream) and am just wondering if that is the end of the first no wake or the beginning of another?

Also, are there any real hazards in the river between the two lakes that I'd have to worry about? I haven't ventured past the Mission Creek inlet yet.

I'm new to fishing the area and am trying to get familiar with it - I camp on the north end of the lake so if you see a somewhat beat-up looking blue Alumacraft driving around looking confused, that's probably me - stop by and say hi! smile

Thanks a lot guys!

No wake zones are typically marked by a buoy at each end. Usually in channels.

From pokegama downstream for about 1.5 miles is no-wake and ends at the sandbar with an old volleyball net. At normal water levels this section of the river is only 2-4ft deep so you'd want to take is slow anyway. A no wake zone starts again at the I-35 bridge and goes until cross lake. There are shallow areas in this section as well so use caution. Logs are the main hazards out there. Take it slow at first and you'll be fine.

Utilize the time while going slow. I've trolled jointed raps (flat raps would probably be better), and have absolutely hammered the pike from pokegama to the hwy. Nothing huge, but fun action nonetheless.

I seem to do okay with the pike as long as I'm fishing for bass! wink

Is the catfishing very good in this section of the snake river?

catfishing is very good in this section. just south of the volleyball net and then again in front of the big houses just west of the bridge.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
