Where is the Straight River located? The one I'm thinking of is a trout stream by Park Rapids which definitely isn't SouthCentral MN.

the straight river i am speaking of flows from owatonna to faribault then meets with the cannon and eventually goes to the mississippi i believe, I was there again today caught a lot of smallies mostly 10-12 inchers but a few of them were in the 15" range.

STRANGE THING IS THAT I GREW UP ON THE STRAIGHT AND SPENT A LOT OF MY FREE TIME THERE AS A TEEN AND ALL I EVER CAUGHT THERE WAS CARP,BULLHEAD,SUCKERS AND AN ACCASIONAL NORTHERN

I WONDER WHERE THEY CAME FROM , SOMEONE MENTIONED

SOMETHING ABOUT A LAKE BYLESBY DAM ????????? BUT I HAVENT GOT A CLUE WHERE THAT IS .

Lake Byllesby is just south of Hampton and just west of 52, part of the cannon river system, but from looking at the DNR info, they didn't get any bass in the survey nets at all (but the last survey is 1993) I have picked up several smallies at Tetonka the last 4 yrs, so if the water is clear etc, maybe they like the river.

note the spelling of the lake, you can find data (map) on the DNR lake finder.

      Nice job Bob! Fishing off the neighbors dock sucked for us. My gang is coming up Thursday night till Monday, this will be our opener, we'll hit it hard. It's a bummer my dock is mostly under water and the lift isn't in. Thanks to the neighbor around the corner for letting us park on shore at there place next weekend.

      I had a great weekend the weather was decent and fishing was good. I caught 5 walleyes 21"-25", 4 northerns largest was 32" and a 17 largemouth opening day. 2 more walleyes, 2 crappies 2 northerns on Sunday all on jig and minnows.

      We had a good opener as well we could have kept limits opening day, but just kept enough for a fish fry. Then Sunday had our little friendly tourney and everyone had a pretty good day. Pulling cranks and jigs n minnows caught fish.

      Had a great opening weekend. Son and I boated 51 walleye between Saturday and Sunday. Plenty of small stuff but no problem getting some nice keepers. This is a pic of the best weekend fish for us.

      I was on Rice this weekend also. Seen boat lifts with water up to the canopy. I was the only one to catch a fish out of the hole campground It was about a 6" crappie.

      We had a pretty good weekend. There were two couples and we limited out both Saturday and Sunday. The eyes we kept were all 15-17”.  We caught many 10-14” eyes and one 26” which was returned to the water immediately. All on a variety of jigs in 18-35’ of water. As usual the women out fished both of us😀

      Wrong area, sorry.

      I will second the advice on watching out for floating debris.  We saw a lot of floating logs and deck sections this weekend.  Also, most hazard and navigation buoys were not out yet.  I wonder how many lower units and props were destroyed this weekend?  It would be dicey if you don't know the lake.
