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.

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
