Namakagon River Fishing Reports

6 posts in this topic

A group of us are looking at doing a camping/fishing trip down the Namakagon. Have done day trips on other rivers, but have never really paid much attention how far I have gone. Any recommendations on what stretch of the river to fish and where to stop along the way. We are doing two nights of camping and then out on the 3rd day. I've looked at the map and see there are camping sites all along. One thought was to put in at County Road K, and camp near Whispering Pines or Howell Landing the first night, then McDowell the 2nd night and float down and pull out at Namakagon Trail. We'll be fishing fairly hard and was just wondering if this sounded do-able or if anyone had other ideas or rule of thumb for distance traveled in a day. Thanks for your help

Call Wild River Outfitters in Grantsburg and ask their advice. You may want to tell them you were thinking of renting canoes from them.

I think that distance is a little light for 3 days on the river. It would be pretty easy to get to Riverside or beyond in that time.

Here is a link to some river maps to check out. http://www.nps.gov/sacn/planyourvisit/maps.htm

You might want to give Pappy's or Pardun Canoe Rental a call to get their input on floats.

I think you're right. Could put in at Jack's (715-635-3300) at the head of the flowage and spend some time fishing that. Then portage the dam and head down. I think you can leave vehicles at Jacks too and just down the road from there is the Namekagon Information and Visitor Center.

I will be going out of Jacks in Trego this weekend, but for just a day ride. We will be starting in Hayward and going back to Jacks. It is a very nice scenic relaxing ride.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
