St. Croix River heating up for walleyes; other waters also improve

Walleye fishing is improving daily across much of Minnesota.

Upper Red has been hot all season. Crane and Namakan on the Canadian border were good when the Ontario season opened last Saturday. Vermilion was good on the opener for many anglers, despite the ice. Saganaga at the end of the Gunflint Trail is finally ice-free.

And great walleye fishing is occurring  next door to the Twin Cities on the St. Croix River, reports guide Dick "the Griz'' Grzywinski (photo above, while fishing earlier this spring on the Mississippi) of St. Paul (651-771-6231 or book through Blue Ribbon Bait in St. Paul, 651-777-2421.)

Guide Tony Roach (763-226-6656 or www.roachsguideservice.com) is doing well on Mille Lacs, catching mixed bags of walleyes, smallies and northerns.

And Guide Tom Neustrom is doing well on Grand Rapids area lakes, including Leech and Winnie. Contact: 218-327-2312 or  218-259-2628, or  tom@mnfishingconnections.com.
