Go to the MN Bookstore, can be accessed through the DNR webpage and pick up some contour maps. I have copies from Sartell to Little Falls. The area above the Blanchard dam is deep and has some mid river structure that looks real good. I have only fished it a couple times, but have never caught anything. The area around the Swan River inlet is supposed to be good. Last time I was there, it had good weed growth.
I am not very good at fishing rivers. I think I need to change my approach out there. I live about 300 yards from the Mississippi just north of Sartell, but am far from a master of this waterway.
I here every Fall there are some bruisers caught up by Little Falls, but not sure where. The nice thing is the river is pretty much void of damage causing obstacles out there.

I have only fished the area atime or two with limited results, but I do have a good story about Muskies in the area!

My older brother was fishing for walleyes below the Blanchard dam i do believe it was and he was standing on a cement embutment, he got a snag and upon jerking it free, a Muskie hit the little minnow that must have still been attached, and jerked my bro off the cement piece and he broke his leg! Not a compound, but a simple break. He hobbled and hopped and fell and hobbled somemore, up and down river and he landed the fish!
It was 25 plus pounds and he had it mounted.

The fish came first, then he went and had a cast put on his leg! A real trooper!

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
