northshore streams

Recommended Posts

Does the DNR have a map of any of the streams around the North Shore that have trout? I can't find any on their HSOforum. I'm also wondering what streams around there are stocked.

Any info would be great. I have fished a part of the Knife River and I'm looking to try some new areas.

I'm not asking for anyone's secret spot, just places to find info would be very much appreciated.

Go to the French River hatchery and grab a map. They have some informative booklets also...

Looking for stream trout you will find most rivers near Duluth up the shore are stocked with rainbows (Kamloops, steelhead) for the spring anadromous run. These smolts are hungry since the rivers are sterile. Use barbless and no bait since you must release in summertime near the lake - unless you happen upon a 16" clipped looper in summer, not likely. Likewise on a 20" brookie, which would be a shame to fry.

Read your regs and scan a map. For brookies go up the shore or to one of Duluth's stocked parks. I asked a DNR creel survey taker about brook trout and he replied "Nobody fishes for brook trout". Mind you it was HIS JOB to ASK ME what I was fishing for - he didn't.

Not sure where you are from but, after some arm twisting I was able to get one at the Region 5 headquarters(rochester).

Say_der if you live near the metro go to the DNR headquarters in St. Paul. They should have a North Shore trout map.

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
