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 change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.

      Joe The DNR guy has a point.  There is a distinction between taxing the general population, and charging a fee (call it a tax if you want to) that only hits the folks that use the service.       So trout stamp money is used to provide trout fishing opportunities.   The trout stamp or fishing license isn't a tax since you choose to pay it in order to engage in the activity that the money provides.       They have a certain amount of money to spend to provide or enhance trout fishing opportunities.   Planting lake trout in a lake that already gets stream trout might not be a good use of that money.

      How often do you change out braided lines on your ice reels? Finally changed my out, not sure how long it has been on the reel or if needed to change it.
