Does anyone know what the fishing is like on the Kettle River? There was a guy who owned a bait shop in Hinkley and he would talk about fishing this river. Now that store is closed and I have been unable to gather any info about this river. Any help is would be great!

Well I know that the new state record sturgeon was cought under hte bridge on 48.. but other than that I knwo after the **** went out alot of the good holes are no more. Although I have noticed a few boats on teh kettle river and the Banning Junction access..... and that is odd becasue I have never seen a boat there before.. maybe they know something we don't.
Let me know if you do any luck.. I might go and put the boat in it this weekend

I have heard rumors about this river. I have drove by it many times and I have seen trucks and trailers at the accesses. Every time I bring up the subject about this river, I either get the run around or everyone is hush hush. No one wants to talk about and the person that did talk about it can't be found now. I have asked the DNR to send me maps of the river and I'm going to check it out for myself. I think I will travel in my canoe. That way if I don't catch anything, at least the trip will be enjoyable.

I will keep you posted on my journey.

By the way, I seen a picture of that fish. It was huge!

My family owns land along that River, north of 48. There are Sturgeon and trout! A few walleye... not many though.. I nver fish it now that it is normally WAY low. A canoe is a good bet!

Good luck.

Yes a canoe is your best bet nowthat the river is lower since the **** is gone. I knew of a few holes on that river but i Have not heard of any since the river **** is gone.. THere was one just south of the old **** about 200 yards adn then there was another one you could access on the FCI side of the river... we cought alot of northern and big cats out of that one. And a occasional muskie... god was that fun!
There is also a hole just south of the bridge in Rutledge that was EXCELLENT but you need a depth finder to find it now.. that is if it is even still there
Good luck on your endevaors and have fun... that is one thing I would like to get is a canoe so I can do that..... my boat motor had a long shaft and I am really not looking forward to putting it in the river.
