Snake River

Spent yesterday wading in the Snake. I was hoping for the clouds and rain but it was very bright, with the water as low as it is it makes it tough for finding fish did get three real nice smallmouth (16, 17, 18). Caught lots of hammerhandle pike.

At one point I had 3 smallies chasing the 4th smallie that I had hooked, they were trying to take a swipe at the lure in the hooked smallies mouth, that would'e been a battle!

All and all a beautiful day, no bugs, new scenery and the sound of rushing waters! Sometimes I feel bad for folks in boats (just kidding I have a boat).

Sounds like a great day, did ya happen to get any walters amongst all the pike and bass?? I waded into the snake earlier in the summer and got a couple nice walleyes to eat along with the great battles with the smallies...

I have always wanted to fish the Snake, would you be willing to give me a rough estimate as to where you fished. I would like to have a likly spot before I go and give it a shot, anything would help, thanks - The Prodigy

I didn't get any walleyes, I fished topwater (cause the water was mostly shallow and it's fun). My guess is if you find any pools that are 5ft or more you might find the mighty walleye, with water this low it may be best to hit the river closer to Pine City. I'm actually concerned that the big Pike may not come back into the river this fall the river is just too low, the water temps are starting to drop.

Prodigy-

I'm hesitant to give out spots online, my best suggestion would be to get a good map and find every bridge that goes over the river. I've really only fished 4 spots and found them all to be good to great. I've fished east of 35W, but would love to hear reports about other areas. I hate to be vague but it is a fairly small area. The nice thing is with the water as low as it is right now if you are wading you cant go wrong lots of areas that normally would be too high are completely accessible right now. I can shoot you an email if you want.

I totally understand your hesitation. What you have said will help a lot. I will be catch and releasing everything except for maybe 1 or 2 walleyes if I get them. If you wouldn't mind sending me an e-mail, I would very much apprciate it - The Prodigy ( whitegunner@hotmail.com )

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      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
