By Dennis Anderson, Star Tribune, Minneapolis Jul. 23--Lake fishing across much of Minnesota can become more challenging in midsummer.

But perhaps the most fun that can be had these latter days of July is on rivers, fishing for warm-water species such as smallmouth bass and walleyes. Minnesota is blessed with many rivers to choose from. Obvious choices...

Maybe Smith Mountain Lake, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Appalachian Trail. High on my list...

WASKISH, Minn. _ Walleye action was beginning to slow from the torrid pace anglers had experienced since the May 10 fishing opener, but Upper Red Lake still was kicking out fish at a pretty good clip for late June, Tyler Brasel said.

He and his parents, Steve and Tammy Brasel, pulled stakes from their home...

The scenery was breathtaking, the fishing spectacular. And the people two Minnesota men encountered along their 7,000-mile, three-week trek in small floatplanes from Minnesota to Alaska and back were simply unforgettable. "The mountains, oceans and fishing was phenomenal, but I think the people is what we'll remember 20 or 30 years from now," said pilot Wolfgang Greiner, 52, of Bloomington. "We ran into open, generous people every day." Their itinerary would make an angler_or pilot_drool....

By Brad Dokken, Grand Forks Herald, N.D. Jul. 6--The numbers confirm what almost everyone who fished Upper Red Lake this summer already knew: Walleye fishing's been pretty darn good.

Minnesota's walleye season opened May 10. If two fish...
