Hawgtide, river info?


Recommended Posts

Hey bud,

Not sure if you will get this before I leave for the river today. Scott and I are smallie hunting tonight and I'm thinking about putting in at the Kalder access. How far up and down river can I go before I need to watch for the pesky rocks? I dont really want to smash my prop.

As soon as you go north (about a 1/4 mile), you'll see a nasty looking riffle area, but the channel runs right up the middle. You should be able to go right up the middle of it without problems, it looks bad, but it's about 5ft deep. After you get past that stay to the right and you should be able to make it up quite a ways. Hard to tell since I don't know how shallow your boat runs and the river is still up a little. You probably can make it all the way to Monti, just be careful at times.

Just across from the access on the North shore it is deep 10-12'. It stays that way for about 1/4 mile south until the riffle area, but that one is not too shallow now so you should be able to get back without any problems. Just look out for the obvious rocks. shocked.gif

DUDE!!! HOLY SMOKES what a night. Lots and lots of fish. We didnt care for the Kadler area so we moved to fimilar territory and slayed them. 19, few 18's, few 17's, few 16's I lost count after 500 fish.....well maybe not that many. Non stop fishing action all night. I could get addicted to that.

Man the river is moving.

I was in that same area last night...just down from the Kadler launch and I crushed the smallies as well. It took me awhile to settle in on a color, but "Old Steady" (#3 Mepp's) up on the banks was on fire.

I couldn't go 3 casts between fish. Probably 20 in 2 hours...all nice ones...15"-18".

I didn't settle in on a pattern until 8pm, but I fished until it was pitch black and I would've paid $100 for one more hour of daylight.

I don't think there is anything that will keep me off the river this weekend...

The smallies are on, boys...

Cancel any and all plans and spool up heavy.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      Where are the opener fish pictures?

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
