Stewartville Area

5 posts in this topic

I'm in the area for a few days and I wanted to know some good places to fish. Also consider traveling to Rochester. Let me know a few good lakes for easy shore fishing.

Thanks,

zasteeg

Lakes are few and far between in the Stewartville area my friend. Rochester has a few "lakes" - silver, foster arends. Chester woods is east of Roch a few miles and Lake Zumbro is a few miles north of town. My advice would be to hit up an area stream if you are shorebound... Otherwise, any of the above gives you a chance.

Willow Creek is only about 6 to 7 miles from Stewertville. It's located about 2 miles directly north of the Rochester airport. If you zoom into a map of that area, you'll see its accessible via the road Lone Pine Dr. It has a public fishing dock, but also lots of shoreline area. Mostly bluegills and largemouth bass.

If you are looking for some variety, I would suggest Foster Arends, all three species of stream trout are stocked in there. Plus there are some lunker bass in there as well. Gills and crappies tend to run on the stunted side though.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
