Little Falls Shore Fishing

3 posts in this topic

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

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
