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.

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.

      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
