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.

      Was on the US Side between Island View and the Brule for the last two days.  Tough sledding.  A few 15's for the cast iron, three over 22 and a lot of peanuts.  Nothing big, and not much luck marking pods of fish.  Probably spent as much time graphing as I did fishing.  Still shallow I think.  Casted shorelines and caught a few little smallmouth for fun.     Back at it next week Tuesday and Wednesday.  I'm going to go bottom bouncing in some deeper water and try a few trolling patterns with rapalas... see what happens.

      Hit the big pond today ,, Launched from McQuade and found a good 10 degree temp difference  from tea to clean water ,, Fish didn't cooperate like we planned but did go 5 for 7 in 7 hours trolling but that's fishing not catching ,, Great day spent on the water with pals ,,, Good luck to those who dont have 7 day weekends like us retired folks

      Haven't been active for some time.    Life can do that to you.    Changed jobs doing somewhat the same but what is different is I've been involved with the duty and honor of interment of our Nation's Veteran's.  I'm working at the new MN Veteran's Cemetery on Hwy 53 just North of Pike Lake.  I see myself doing this till its time to retire.   That and servicing Nils Master Blades during Winter months has been kept me extremely busy. Spring, Summer, and Fall is my personally resolution to enjoy my time and take to the water as much as possible. With that I'll share what I can.   Knowing you all have busy schedules too, I ask you share when you can.  We don't ask for your secret spots but share as you can.

      Catching blues under the bridge next to archery range in Shakopee on the Minnesota River. Water rescinding about 2ft a day.

      This forum Great Again.      Lets get some reports going on the Big lake going.  I know we have lurkers and that can share.  For those that don't know, you have tools at find patterns, water temps, mudlines, and surface temps.   Coastwatch for surface water temps.  http://www.coastwatch.msu.edu/superior/s1.html UMD Buoy Data for water temps. http://www.d.umn.edu/buoys/ Modis for mud lines.  https://coastwatch.glerl.noaa.gov/modis/modis.php?region=s&page=1&template=sub&image=a1.19170.1900.LakeSuperior.143.250m.jpg    Hottest tip I can give lately an the temp break has been right on the mud line.   Compare that data on your next trip out.

      I would think the different items would be marked, or do you mean they wear gloves over their eyes?

      Has anyone here fished silver creek before? I'm looking to try a new spot on the north shore but I cant find much information on it. If you have is it fairly easy to access fishing spots there?
    • delcecchi
      I can see how it could happen.  Remember that these days all the prep people are wearing gloves, so might not be able to feel any difference.   Or both could have been frozen...

      Thanks for the tips, I’ll report back after and let you know how we do.  Very excited to get up there.....

      Well, my annual trip was only an extended weekend this year, as I had to use my actual vacation to go to Florida for a wedding.    Drove up Friday morning after work, and was able to hit Two Island Lake for a few hours in the evening. As soon as we boated to my secret spot, a storm cloud moved over and the wind was insane! Temps dropped, and I only caught a few smallies.   on Saturday we went to Greenwood Lake. Even though we caught about 50 bass, it was still a slow day. Weather was perfect. Bugs were horrible! My dad caught a nice lake trout. My daughter caught her first northern pike, and I also caught one. Fished this lake for 30 years and never even seen a pike, now they’re taking over!   Fished Hungry Jack on the final day. Weather was once again perfect! Only caught a few bass. My son absolutely loves fishing off the resort’s dock. So the kids had a blast catching sunnies (including my daughter’s first).    Was a bummer we only got to stay up there a few days. My dad stayed until today, but I haven’t heard how he did. Didn’t see any moose. Was also the first time I’ve been up there and did not catch a trout. We got our fill of Sven & Ole’s and world’s best donuts. We might try to go back up next month.
