Little Falls Shore Fishing

Recommended Posts

Rip_Some_Lip

I will be up at Little Falls next week for a class for work and was wondering if there is any shore fishing spots close by? If anyone knows of anything, please point me in the right direction. It will be all catch and release because I am staying at the Super 8 motel. Thanks for any replies.

I don't know about Little Falls itself...

However... If you go south (Aproximately 10 miles) on Hwy 10 from Little Falls to the Town of Royalton... You'll hit a Stop lights... Take a right... Go over the railroad tracks...

About a mile down there's a sportsman's park on the right. (Costs like $5 donation in a box to use it.) There are some smallie opportunities along that shore.

OR... If you go past the sportsman's park you come to a bridge about a half mile down... I've seen guys shore fishing the Mississippi out there.

Then there's also Blanchard Dam... (Which is probably your best chance for a bite.)

While I've been to Blanchard Dam 8-10 times... It's been years, and I don't know that I Can give you good directions... I would stop in a gas station in Royalton and ask for directions... I'm sure the entire population of the town has shore fished Blanchard Dam in their lives.

You can fish above or below the dam right in town. The whole west shoreline from the bridge to Larson boats is fishable(it's a city park). Below the dam is two more parks, one on each side of the river. You should be able to hook into some smallies in any of these spots. Good Luck

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.
