Anyone Been Fishing the Straight?

Recommended Posts

I've heard mixed reports on the Straight River. Where is the "best" place to start if one is thinking of fishing it?

Thanks,

Try south of the lake by osage and work your way down and across 71 look for a gravel road south of the st. river to the right coming from wadena go down there about three miles and your eyes will see something great! I'll be running around there sat. are you flying or ul

Don't know when I'll get there. If all goes Well next Sat(8th) is when I will be there. I will have both the fly rod and the UL. But I will probably be UL'in it because I currently have more faith in my abilities with that.

Thanks for the update and insight.

Hmmmm, thanks for the update. Wow, that's a bit chilly. Brrrrrrrr. I'm trying to swing it for this coming Saturday. I've got the Go-ahead, but my fishing buddy is still a toss-up.

I fished the river Tue, Wed, (morning 'till late afternoon) and this morning... very tuff bite. I used crawlers, spinners and fly gear. A couple smaller fish but nothing bigger than 12 inches. I fished from Park Rapids west both with waders and in my kayak.

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
