Where is the best place to fish for walleyes on the St Louis River these days? Is the launch at the old Arrowhead bridge location in Superior open? Need help, want to go fishing tomorrow. Today's date 5/26/10
Early in the season, walleyes from Lake Superior head up the river to the Fon du Lac dam to spawn. Not sure whether the spawn is done yet up in that part of the woods, but I would suspect that the early season would mean that you'll be fishing post-spawn. The good thing about the post-spawn is that the walleyes are very slow about heading back to Superior. Most of the spring walleye fishing on the St. Louis River takes place from the Highway 23 bridge to Duluth Harbor. I would recommend spinners or harnesses with a crawler, leech or minnows. Jig fishing and crank baits have also been successful. Walleyes in current tend to hug the bottom so park in the middle at about 12 feet and keep the bait down and also fish the edges of the channel. Sometimes, if the current is tough, you can find backwaters that are a bit calmer... perfect time to throw out some crank baits as the 'eyes tend to rest and feed in these areas.

People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
