Ikeslayer,

Mac's may be closed to parking, but is the water closed to fishing???

I fished from the green bridge up to the plunge pool on Sunday. I tossed jigs and plastics for smallmouth and sauger, and husky jerks and smithwicks for exox, and didn't even get a bite. I've fished this stretch since I was a kid with my Grandfather in the 60's, and I'd like to think I know it well enough to find the fish. Yesterdays water was low and clear, but something is up with that stretch ~ it's really changed in the last 5-years (about the time the zebras were introduced). I find some fish in the summer months, but not like it used to be. No more 50 fish outings on the tail waters. I miss it.

Anyone have a theory?

yeah i know that you can't get into macs anymore and that is a shame however there are some alternate routes of getting down there and i was wondering if anyone had been down there lately. i am looking to do a blast and cast trip where the rod is in hand and the gun is accross the lap for ducks and geese. Wondering if anyone has had any luck in the area. Goody it sounds like that was rough. I don't know what i would have done differently. best wishes to all and let me know if you have any hints. ike

Ikeslayer,

Spoke to a man last night that knows the zumbro better then the back of his hand, and he still has great outings on that stretch of water from Macs on down ~ as recent as last week. Could have been the cold front or the pace I was working upstream to cover the miles. Probably a combination of the two. Go for it, work the deeper water slowly, and best of luck. Post a report if you are inclined.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
