The Elk River area is great for cats, smallmouth and carp. You will also catch plenty of walleye, northern, suckers...etc. I would recommend using a small aluminum boat or a flat bottom. There are a lot of rocks to watch out for but once you learn the channel and how to run it she goes pretty smoothly. If you want you should join a bunch of us for our second annual Miss Cat Gathering, we use the big island in down-town Elk River as our base camp. The dates are June 14-15th.

Good luck out there.

thanks for the info. I have a 16ft. with a 50 on it is that small enough? it looks shallow around that big island. do people go out around the 101-169 bridge?I think there is a ramp there.

That boat should be ok, not ideal but it should do the the trick. We put in at the 101 bridge and head up stream from there. The river is pretty shallow up until the small bridge in down-town, it drops off nice about 200 yards before that. Once you get up by the island there is a lot of good deep water.
