I'm not a river fisherman by any stretch but stopped in by Chris at Freemont Bait and Tackle for bait and advice,  he took a lot of the mystery out of the river.  He did a quick explaination of some simple river fishing tactics and why fish are in those specific locations. He told my son the type of structure to look for and the fish were there,  he also was honest and said its going to be tough so be prepared.  It was fun at least locating fish even though the catch was slow   He has a great little shop that is loaded with everything you need to fish the river.  After leaving my son said WOW that guy was cool and really knows his stuff about the river,  wish we could get him to fish with us, bet we would catch a ton of fish..  He was pumped up.

Thanks Chris for the assistance,  we appreciate the time you spent with us and your honesty

Way early. Water temps remain high. Night time temps have yet to get below 50 so lakes have not had sufficient time to cool. Lot of humidity in the air preventing the cool down.

Fished 6 to noon yesterday from a half mile north of boom island all the way down to the mouth.  Targeted crappie on a dozen downed trees.  Nothing.  Ran salmos at the mouth and near the rat.  Nothing.  Dragged crawlers at the mouth.  Nothing.  Around 10 went to a channel inlet in 4 FOW and picked up 3 nice perch and several dink smallies jigging and dead sticking crawlers and minnows on jigs off the bottom.  For an hour it was decent action.  At 1130 went back to the mouth to find 6 boats with occupants sitting around looking at each other.  No catching.  Other than the fish I caught I saw not one other fish reeled in by another boater the whole day.  Saw some rods bent over pulling in weeds.  Looked like they were having fun ??.  Moral of the story is if you live close you can catch fish if you move a ton and work really hard.  If you're driving from 2hrs away you may want to wait a bit.  Just sayin...

The fall is a little different as the fish only concern is eating  in spring the set up close to spawning areas.

The baits will be the same as spring.  River rigs with flies, minnows, demon spinners, and rattle trap/crank baits.  

There are going to be a lot of smaller walleyes in the fall but some big females are being caught already. The walleye are still on crawlers but will switch over to minnows once we get closer to 50. 

The best part of the fall run is you can catch fish all the way to it freezes.


Hope that helps

I'm planning on bringing my 11 year old son up next weekend for his first trip to the wolf.  I have been coming for the spring run for years, but this will be my first fall run.  Are the conditions and choice of baits about the same, or are there differences in the way the fish behave in the fall?  We are staying at gala and planned on working from down river on up until we find something good.  Any fall run advice would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks in advance!
