Hi,my dad and I live in chisago mn and are looking for a place for walleye within a half hour max of us.We are going for the mn opener,but since wi is a week earlier,we figured we would head to wi.So what would be  the best bet for walleye a half hour or less from chisago?

Not a lot of great walleye lakes just over the border. Cedar is probably the best bet and that will be right around 30 minutes from Chisago. Most other lakes with rebounding walleye populations are further away. You could also try the St. Croix River, although north of Taylor's Falls Dam those fish could be a long ways upstream.

Just look up the fish crib maps for Cedar, or on opener you can probably just look for the other boats. It is a pretty easy lake to fish.

Balsam isn't a good walleye lake right now. A lot of lakes have seen really poor success on small fingerling stocking, so they have recently switched to large fingerling stocking. While they are improving, it will be a few more rounds of stocking before the fishing picks up.
