Haven't fished it, but Pattersons's rapids sounds like a place I'd like to try. Must be some walldos hanging out there. smile.gif

Good Luck & Good Fishing. Lucky

I FISHED THAT AREA QUITE OFTEN ACTUALLY! I GREW UP SOUTH OF OLIVIA, ABOUT HALF WAY TO REDWOOD. I'VE FISHED IN REDWOOD A LOT TOO. NOW I FISH THE AREA SOUTH OF RENVILLE AND AROUND GRANITE MORE THAN REDWOOD.

That's the stretch I often fish the most. Have done well for flats in some of the deeper holes and snags. Also have caught the biggest channel of my life in that stretch (17 lbs). There are some nice fish to be caught there but I think west of Redwood upriver is a little better or down farther by Franklin. If you're looking for a fishing partner, let me know. I'm available most weekends.

I went through the co park yesterday and it had about 100 canoeists in the bigger part of the campground. I think we will probably stay at the very west one. Nice little spot for camping there.

I have fished around that area alot, but not in the past 3 years. The last time I was down there I towed a couple of guys from Iowa up about a quarter of a mile to the access. I haven't fished it because the access had that big sandbar in front of it. Looks like they took some of that out though. I will fish from shore though this weekend. If I don't see ya down there I will post how I did.

SLAYER73...

I USAULLY FISH THE AREA BY THE #6 BRIDGE. THERE IS A SAND BAR THAT STICKS OUT INTO THE RIVER A BIT AND WORKS GOOD FOR SETTING THE RODS UP AND BUILDING A FIRE. I ALSO FISH "DEEP EDDIE" KINDA BY THE BOAT LAUNCH. PROBABLY WHERE YOU WILL BE. A FEW YEARS BACK I PULLED A FLATHEAD OUT OF THERE, BUT NOT MUCH ELSE CAUGHT THERE. SEEMED TO HAVE BETTER LUCK BY THE BRIDGE.

I WILL GO FISHING ON SUNDAY FOR SURE, BUT NOT SURE IF I'M GOING TO TRY GRANITE FIRST OR NOT. IF I FISH THE PARK IT WILL PROBABLY BE TOWARDS SUNDAY EVENING.

IF WE DON'T SEE EACH OTHER, I AS WELL WILL POST HOW I DID.

GOOD LUCK!

Well well, a few people hitting up Deep Eddy. That place is always packed with people Memorial day weekend. I myself have never had much luck there, other than snags. The actual "deep eddy" is best fished with a boat from the other side of the river but that's not always convenient. I might swing up there though and try to see if you fellas are catching anything. I have plans for fishing sunday downriver of Morton probably or else between Redwood and Morton. I try to keep away from all the crowds. Hopefully see you out sometime though. Good luck.

P.S., where do you fish by Granite? In town or just east of town on hwy 68 there?

WAS OUT AROUND GRANITE ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON, THE WATER WAS ABOUT 4 FEET HIGHER THAN LAST TIME I WAS DOWN. IN ABOUT 2 HOURS MANAGED ONLY A FEW SMALL CATS, A FEW WALLEYES, AND A SHEEPHEAD. WENT TO #6 BRIDGE, A.K.A. THE PARK SOUTH OF RENVILLE, ON SUNDAY NIGHT. WE WENT TO CATCH A FEW CHUBS AND SHINERS IN A SMALL CREEK WE KNOW, BUT THE WATER WAS WAY TO HIGH. SO WE FISHED WITH ONLY NIGHTCRAWLERS AND GOT QUITE A FEW BITES, BUT ONLY CAUGHT A 4# CHANNEL AND A SMALL CARP. HOPE YOU GUYS HAD BETTER LUCK!

I was thinking about you fellas out there on the River saturday night. I had plans to get the boat out downriver from Morton but that wasn't going to happen. Took a look up north of Delhi and the river was considerably lower there than down my Morton. I know the Redwood was very full so I'm sure that made a big difference. I ended up cleaning my house and doing other "necessary" chores. Waste of a weekend if you ask me. : )

I didn't get to go fishing down there this weekend. I got rained out and ended up loosing my minnow pail in the rising water. Maybe this week some time. Anyone ever catch them when the river is so full of trash?

Just looked at the first page of this thread and answered my previous question.

We should meet up sometime for some river fishing. I hang out with a bunch of other river rats that love it down there. I start overnights tonight at the sheriffs office. Just stop up and say hi or give a call and ask for Jim, I'll probably answer the phone anyways. I get there at 10 pm.

Later, SPUD

LEECH and Slayer you too.

Spud, You're a dispatcher in the Sheriff's office huh. I'm sure I would know you then. I was also born and raised in Redwood and live here now. I farm around here and hit the river most weekends if I'm not busy. we should get on the river sometime. Drop me a line. matt_tiffany at hotmail.com

That I am. That was me who bought that. The johnson is still running strong. One of my better investments. Anyone been out much since last weekend? I'm planning on getting out this weekend work/weather permitting. Hopefully I can get my corn sprayed before that smile.gif Later

      Water is really low. It’s definitely doable, but there will be a lot of spots you’ll have to get out and pull. Fallen trees in low water might be your biggest obstacle. Should be plenty of smallies to catch. They’ll be concentrated in any deep pools you come across.

      Well you're are! 😆 Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous.
    • Caleb9
      Not too long ago, I found synthesis paper topics here. I may be exaggerating, but this is one of the best topic ideas sites I have found in the last few years.
    • Caleb9
      Satirical essays employ humor, hyperbole, irony and irony to poke fun at a subject. These essays are often directed at celebrities, politicians and current events. Although satirical essays are intended to entertain, the writer of satire often seeks out useful, relevant, and eye-opening information. You can learn how to write satirically by understanding the styles and purpose of your content.   Step 1 Pick a topic. You should choose the  satirical essay topics that is absurd or ironic. Your goal is to make your subject absurd, much like a caricature artist who exaggerates his subject's facial features. To get ideas, you might look at political cartoons in Sunday's paper.   Step 2 Hyperbole can be used to prove your point. Hyperbole can be used to exaggerate facts. However, it does not mean lying. It is important to keep to the facts but to use hyperbole to emphasize the absurdity of them. One example of this might be "Andy Garbo consumes a lot of coffee each year to keep his Folgers stock profitable." Although this is obviously hyperbole, it's meant to convey an exaggerated point regarding Andy.   Step 3 To present your ideas, use irony. Irony refers to the use of words and phrases to express something that is not what you really mean or an incongruity between what the person expects and actually happens. Irony can be expressed as "He's kind enough steal from the poor to help his pocketbook." This becomes ironic when the word "kind enough" is used. Because of its sarcastic tone, irony makes a great tool for satirical essays.   Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous. While not all satire can be funny, pointing out the absurdities of your topic can help you to get people to think differently or make your point faster. Humor is a great way to get people to respond quicker, especially if you make them see the absurdity in the same way as you.   Learn more at: https://proessays.net/blog/40-witty-topics-for-a-satirical-essay

      Has anyone fished the Rum River between Onamia and the Wayside landing around this time of year before? I'm looking to take a trip with the kayak over labor day, but wanted to make that stretch would be deep enough to float (I'm ok with occasionally dragging the kayak, but I don't want to take my girlfriend on a 9 mile hike in ankle deep water), and that there'd be a realistic chance to hook into some good smallies. I will be doing strictly catch and release, I just want to get out and have some topwater fun. I had heard from some that the stretch of river in question may be better in June, so I wasn't for sure.    If that stretch of river is no good, is there another that you'd recommend?   I appreciate any help.

      On the south end...  Walleye fishing has been good all summer and is still strong.  Lots of limits of walleyes along with some big fish being caught.  Lake levels continue to drop thankfully.  Boat ramps are open and charters / guides continue to be on fish. Drifting spinners still producing.  Hammered gold, pink, orange, glow white, glow red or a combo of some of these colors working well.  Usually a two or three hook harness with just a few inches of crawler off of the back hook.  Good success jigging for walleyes.  This technique usually slows down in August, but this year it is still working great.  Using a frozen emerald shiner is the go to. Big walleyes being found, as a rule, over deep mud.  Jigging, spinners and crankbaits are all catching the big fish.   Nice eaters still set up in 15-20' outside both gaps on the south end of the lake as well as numerous areas of Big Traverse Bay.   Lots of anglers running north if conditions allow.   On the Rainy River...   Some good walleye, sturgeon and smallmouth bass reports from the Rainy River.  Water levels continue to drop.   Shoreline breaks, current breaks, weed edges and holes holding a mixed bag. Sturgeon anglers are reporting good numbers of fish.  Putting in a couple of days normally results in some success.  Holes and flats or saddles just off of the current good areas to look at. Up at the NW Angle...  Lots of walleyes along with a mixed bag is the norm.  Some anglers fishing MN waters, others boating into Ontario waters from the Angle and fishing there.  Good reports across the board. Angle resorts are located in MN right on the border.  Checking in with Canada Customs and being vaccinated is not needed if boating from the U.S. to Canada and not touching land, docks, anchoring, mooring or exchanging goods or services.   Little Traverse Bay (large open water east of Little Oak Island) still holding good numbers of walleyes over deep mud. Typical summer spots are producing.  Sunken islands, neck down areas with moving water and points.  With 14,552 islands, lots of places to fish. Muskie anglers reporting fish have been active with good numbers being caught. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air (fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      I have been out four times this season since mid July.  I caught some smaller ones the first couple trips, but Saturday I finally got into some larger fish with my Father.  The bigger ones are tiger muskies in the mid 30 inch range.  I had another one on that made these look small.  We got a good look at it when it surfaced and spit the hook with a head shake.  Appeared to be 45+ inches, which is enormous for a hybrid.
    • gimruis
      I saw a fair amount of wood ducks and teal in the Rum River a couple weeks ago when I was floating it for smallmouth bass.  More so than usual.   I hear ya on the ducks though.  There just isn't nearly as many as there used to be, which is why I stopped hunting them.  Hard to justify the time investment and scouting that is required when it only produces a few ducks per season.  I used to harvest about 35/season just 10 years ago too.
