St. Croix River fishing report: Bite's on for walleye!

You couldn't ask for more of a beautiful day!  I had 4 hours out on the water with air temperatures of 70 degrees. Water temps that ranged from 55 to 57 degrees and wind's out of the east at 5 mph.  The Walleye were biting in 18 to 20 feet of water and really active. All the fish caught today were biting night crawler's with a Lindy Rig's with a slow presentation. Jig&Minnow with a hard drop and lift hold was also working. Among the many Walleye that were caught there were also White Bass and Jumbo Perch.
I released about two dozen Walleye that didn't make the 15" minimum all being 14 to 14.5 inch fish which had to be returned back to the water for another day.  I love going out and having a busy fishing day, you just can't beat the fun. Really good to see so many smaller Walleye's that means the population is really growing and the future of Walleye fishing in the river will be there to enjoy by everyone. The St. Croix is a hidden gem of a fishery and produce's some good eating fish with some really nice trophies mixed in.

Have a great fishing day !!!
