I finally got onto a very good White Bass bite with a few other mixed in before I was so rudley interupted! Heavy rain and hail chased me up the hill to the truck...couldn't have waited another 3 hrs!

Well, I got another 2" and the creek down back is raging once again. Looking at the rainfall totals on the net, it looks like "upstream" got pounded again as well with some areas showing as much as 5"! The guage in Jordan has risen around 10' over the last two weeks and will continue to rise even more. I did some scouting yesterday and found all the creeks and small rivers entering the Minnesota to be chocolate in color and that was before last nights addition.

I think I'll head down towards Rapidan today and check on the Blue Earth....If nothing else, the pie will be good! smile.gif

WET NETS!

Yes, Jenny's pie was fantastic!

The amt of water coming over the Dam is depressing. One good thing about all the rain though....Its making those agates stand out! found my best one yesterday in a gravel pit. I gotta hunt for something. smile.gif

I saw a really nice one two weeks ago but didn't dare to pick it up. I was scared I'd end up with a pick box full of sex stones. grin.gif

I've picked up quit a few pounds of agates and believe me, it doesn't increase the good life at all ....just a little more callous skin is about it smile.gif

I actually found a creek with clean clear water in it. There were fish feeding but I couldn't stay. The Carp and minnows were thick in the shallow end above the mix. Hopefully I can get back there this week and bring some hardware.

Yep, there are a few creeks that are still running clear. I would actually like to see that creek dirty up just a little bit so I could fish it a little easier without spooking the fish. It was a tad bit dirtier yesterday than it was on Thursday.

The river in kato isn't really too high, but the flowage is pretty fast. The best catfishing I have had on that stretch has always been when the rivers were up between 10 and 13 feet range. I think we all got soo used to it being severely low that we are now acting like metro drivers and how they act every year when the first snow falls.

The gauge at Jordan shows 19.5ft and rising!!!

I was out Fri PM 4 days ago when it was at 14.5ft and I thought THAT was nuts!

Whoever's still doing the rain dance... STOP!

I was with Perch Jerker and I thought the water was really high then as well and have to agree, please stop doing the raindance.

anybody know or remember how high it gets before they close the crossing at cr9. I know it hasn't been an issue since the new bridge, but just curious as I travel it daily.

Yep got rain alright! Here is a shot of the Rapidan Dam taken this afternoon.


Well for some reason that didn't turn out! I'm new to posting pics, so I'll have to go back to the drawing board. grin.gif

      Hi all - new to the forum.  I live in NE Wyoming and am an avid fly fisherman.  While I love fishing for trout out west, warm water species on the fly is a blast.   Me and a buddy are headed out this coming weekend for a BWCA trip.  We have a couple of days on the front end of the trip to fish.  I'm planning on towing my drift boat from NE Wyoming and have spot picked out in North Dakota to float for smallies on the fly.  I'm looking at trying to get an additional float in somewhat near Ely before our entry into the Boundary Waters.  It's a 16' drift boat and doesn't really draft much.  I'm planning on having a small trolling motor just in case I need some additional power.  Looking mainly to target smallmouth and pike.   I've looked at a few areas to float, but wanted some advice.  I have a few options that I think meet what I'm looking for:   1) St. Louis River near Hoyt Lakes.  Looked like there are couple of access points to launch and take out below Hwy 110 2) Cloquet River - Hwy 7 to the mouth. 3) Bigfork River - From Ivan Crawford to Reedy Flats   Can anyone provide any advice these or provide any other recommendations?   Thanks in advance!

      I have been doing pretty good bass fishing locally.  A lot of numbers, but lacking in really big quality fish that I have caught the last two seasons.  Biggest I could catch this season so far is 18 inches.

      Welcome to the forum. Downriggers work best for suspended fish in deep water. Most river's are shallow and rocky. If you want to fish the bottom in a river a bottom bouncer might be best to not lose a lot of expensive gear. Imo. Good luck. 
    • DeEon
      I have a Cannon Optima and Iam anxious to try downriggers for walleye.  There is a bottom tracking feature on Optima.  I think most walleyes are close to bottom so I think it is a good tactic.  I am, however, nervous about using Fishhawk XD4 with on river.  A screwup would really be expensive!

      i'm not real involved yet. my first meeting. long story but my parents belonged to it years ago. after the cabin lake had the 2 consecutive years of severe winterkill i dogged the heck out of the fisheries people in grand rapids.🤭 i found out through the watershed assoc they talked them into restocking sunfish and bass into the lake. they did that this past june. so i figured for the 15 bucks join!!!!!   my next battle is with the township......🤣 trying to get them to grade part of our road going into the cabin!!!!! i already sent the letter but havent heard from them yet. since i've retired from being a union thug.......i gotta pick a few battles to keep my skills sharp!!!!!!!!🤪🤭👍
    • Kettle
      That's awesome that you are involved in that! I hope you have a good trip up!
    • smurfy
      I'm heading up sometime the last week in Aug . I joined the Jessie lake watershed assoc and they have a meeting on the 27 I want to attend.

      Definitely in the dog days of summer. Catching a few walleye here and there on the river. Hasn't been too hot which makes me hopeful for an early fall fishing season. I'll post more when the fish turn their feed bags on and the leaves start falling. Until then I'll just work more and get winter gear ready

      Word to the wise. Never click on a Bot post with a highlighted link!  Unless you want cuddies on your system! 😛
