Looking for some pointers or ideas on what to expect out of the river up stream aways. Mostly the area where is goes under Jean Duluth Rd and up a bit more where it runs into the sled trail. I have been out 3 times for brook trout and have yet to see a fish. Wondering if there is much of a population in there. I have tried drifting worms and some small spiners, in what seemed to be several good spots. Thought I would have at least spooked a fish out of them. I live close by these spots now and would like to take my oldest daughter out and actually have a fish on. Although this may not be the easiest fish for that but it would be fun to take advantage of it. Thanks guys.

Sorry but the fish are limited. I grew up in the Lakeside area and we use to bike to the upper Lester and Sucker and did good but the creeks in the last ten years have turned into a trickle of water during the summer months. When we were fishing them there was still alot of the old CCC dams and pools below them deep for that size of water You can still catch a few brookies on the upper sucker of the McQuade Rd and you can also catch some on the upper Knife on the Fox Farm Rd. But let me forwarn Ya rough fishing. If you are looking for brookies and do not mind a little hike thru alittle bit of marsh the trout lake off the Pequam (/) lake rd is great If ya want mor info [email protected]

There's still plenty of brookies to be had in the Lester. The river does see a decent amount of pressure compared to other local streams, just slow your presentation down a bit. However the like the other fella said, the sucker is probably a better option. And normanna lake - I've never been to high on it. Pain to get too and small fish. You'll catch bigger brookies out of the sucker.

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
