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.

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
