I do believe this is the one.
The Metro Area Lakes and Rivers may be helpful, but I think this one would be more specific to that area.

Calvinist....I live about an arrow shot from the Mississippi where you are talking about. If you have some specific questions, maybe I can help?

I want an alternative to lake fishing that is fairly close to where I live; looking specifically for walleyes, but also smallies, and good-sized panfish. Keep in mind I am pretty much a rookie when it comes to river fishing. On August 9th I will be launching in Elk River and floating down in my 16' boat for smallie action and whatever else that is biting. I realize I have to really watch it so I don't hit bottom with the boat. Grebe and Ebass, if you have any suggestions, but don't want to "advertise", please contact me at

Thanks,

If you are drifting down from Elk River, I assume you are having another vehicle at the Dayton Landing or were you planning to return to Elk River? The reason I ask is that there are two really shallow riffle areas between Elk River and Dayton. Once you get below them, I don't think you can drive an outboard over them. (I couldn't last year)You could perhaps get out in the water and pull your boat back up stream.

BTW, those two riffle areas are really good Smallie spots. Just anchor down and fish 'em good.

Calvinist...if you are new to river fishing, you might want to reconsider a long float trip, your first time out on a new stretch of river! Maybe a trip up stream aways and a float back to get an idea on how to read the water, and a feel for the current, etc.

We used to trap quite a stretch of the river by canoe and a small 10 foot Jon Boat, we had a lot of experience on the river and even at that, we would rub once in awhile! That current is really deceptive...if you hurt your lower unit, or something happens to the motor your gonna have an adventure, no doubt!

The one just up stream from the Dayton landing was at 2 and 3 ft at the end of May when the river was a quite higher than it is now. If you do hit that stretch, once you hit, wading with the boat or just beaching it and fishing would be an option, but an iffy one!

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      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!
