North Fork Crow River Canoeable?

Recommended Posts

NorthWoodsGuy

Just wondering if anyone knows if any of the sections of the North Fork Crow River are canoeable. Would like to get out this Friday if possible.

Thanks!

From what I've seen in my wading there will be some spots that'll be shallow maybe a few portages (dragging the canoe over sand). Check the dnr website they have info on the route probably including where the flow should be at for canoeing.

Thanks T-Water. I did check the DNR website and it states low is classified as below 3' and the current reading is 1.88' so I figured it was pretty low. Just looking for some first-hand accounts.

Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the info Brandon. It appears my canoe trip will have to wait until next year. Maybe I'll just grab my waders and see what I can see and catch a fish or two in the process.

Thanks again.

Now you're talkin'! Wading can be a blast on this river. I ussually spend several days a year fishing the crow. My recs would be to not fish after a rain (gets very silty 0 visibility) walk up stream and throw shallow running and topwater lures. I generally use big and bright. It can also be helpful to not fish while the sun is high the fish depend on shade for ambushing. I've only fished the areas south of Annandale and Maple Lake but I'd assume most of the river has some solid fishing. Good luck and let us know!

Thanks for the tips T-Water. With this rain, I'm sure it's going to be quite muddy tomorrow. But hey, maybe I will get the canoe out. It's all good! wink.gif

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
