All rivers along the North Shore are flowing strong. Unfortunately rain and snow has kept rivers across the shore high and difficult to fish. Rivers along the Lower Shore are all running high and dirty. Afternoon water temperatures reached 35 degrees earlier in the week but were only about 32 degrees with Thursday’s cold front. Angling pressure was light with most anglers fishing close to the river mouths due to the high water conditions. Lake Superior continues to have a lot of ice that moves with the winds and has been severely limiting shore anglers targeting Kamloops. Only one steelhead was reported by interviewed anglers. Smelt will not run until river temperatures climb into the upper 40’s. This was a report by the Mn DNR.
