Davern hill one more time

Faith Outdoors

For the second time, I conquered the Davern hill near my home in St. Paul. I made the four-and-a-half-mile jog one week after I did it for the first time.

This time, I hit the pavement at 5 a.m. The early start time was needed because my friend, Pete Wolney, planned on picking me up at 7 to go on our annual fall fishing trip to Lake of the Woods. We normally go earlier than this, but the walleyes have been late in their annual migration from the main lake into the Rainy River.
In fact, the major run still hasn’t happened, so many of the fish are still in the lake. Fortunately, they are biting well and anglers who make the trip out past the gap and into the main basin are being rewarded with limits of walleyes.
Hopefully, the winds won’t be too strong and we’ll be able to get out there, too. I will have a report from our trip later in the week. Then, after that, it’s the deer hunting opener on Saturday!
