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

      We're a little over a week away from the 6th annual LCRA Ice Fishing contest on Lake Gervais in Little Canada, MN! Lots of great prizes, over $10,000 in prizes and raffle. Grand prize for fishing is a Marcum flasher, a Clam X200 flip over thermal and an Eskimo auger! Come on out Saturday, February 4th, noon to 3pm. Line up early for a good spot, the tent will open by 9am with beverages (alcohol and non-alcohol), food and raffle tickets. The raffle is the LCRA's winter raffle. $5 tickets, grand prize is a trip to Vegas and $1,000 cash! You don't have to be present to win in the raffle, that will be drawn after the prizes for the fishing contest around 4pm that day.   The Little Canada Recreation Association is a non-profit group that raises money to offset registration fees for youth in the Little Canada, Roseville, Maplewood and Vadnais Heights areas.

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.
