      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Namakagon River Fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

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.
