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.

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
