Just a quick update on the river from the Falls to Hammond.

I drove along the river road last night and the river is high and muddy. If it keeps raining it's going to get worse.

More of the same here in town as well Dan. I've been meaning to report. I walk across the 4th street bridge everyday and it has been flowing steady and up for a while now. I'll keep everyone updated on how it is looking.

Well the rains this weekend brought things up a bit. Water levels below the 4th St bridge are higher and flowing faster than last week. Looks like a bit more rain in the forecast so it may be a bit before things settle down.

Though its still flowing pretty steady and muddied the water levels have dropped quite a bit below the 4th St bridge. If the rains stay away I'd be willing to be Lake Zumbro will be nice and ready to start getting out on soon.

Well, just because it was such a nice night Alex and I went to the Hammond wingdam last night. Where we usually would stand and fish from was about 2-3 feet under water. Or should I say Nesquick. It was pretty dirty. I can see that it has come down some from the mark the high water left behind.

We fished using cat bait and crawlers. Nothing on the cat bait. But one huge sheepie and one little channel came by using crawlers.

Still a bit early, but as soon as the river levels off and gets warmed up a bit we'll be in business.

      No ice in Stuntz Bay yet but I did lift the boat out of the water onto the boathouse deck.  Easy to drop it back in if the water is soft after I get my deer.

      I took a trip this August to Buffalo River State Park to wade in the river while hitting the holes. My brother and I caught a variety of fish from red horse and chubs to a clam. All fish were caught on worm chunks. This spring/summer I want to use my new 5wt fly road and see what I catch

      Let’s get them 22-27 inch fish out of the lake

      I think anybody can see that the food/forage base is or has declined in Mille lacs.......having a lot of large fish doesn't help it at all. I think they should thin the herd.

      Well was a sad day today indeed. Got the kayak all vacuumed out and cleaned up. Then hung it in it’s winter spot in the shed. Trailer got a cleaning to. But until next year so long open water. Time to finish putting the open water gear away and finish getting the ice gear out.

      10/21/18     I have hunted in the Hutchinson area the last two weekends with my Dad, son, and some friends. Dakota ducks are trickling through central MN as the calendar migration has begun. With strong NW blows before or during the past two weekends, we have harvested mallards, gadwalls, redheads, bluebills, canvasbacks, and ringnecks, as well as a couple of geese hunting from a boat blind on some shallow lakes. This calendar migration should continue over the next couple weeks whenever we can get a strong NW or West wind. It will take some more cold and frozen water in Canada to get the big Canadian birds to come down--hopefully that happens before Thanksgiving. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Snow?  Yeah I finally ran into some today.     And I HAD to get them on the tailgate! 😅   And that is one of the reasons to leave that stuff in MN for a little while.  😎

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️
