pool2 hidden falls

5 posts in this topic

Shorefishing on the Mississippe by hidden falls (st paul side). Plastics having NO results. Crawlers got me a 3lb channel cat, couple of 2lb smallmouth. Tried cut bait right by the shore, hooked a monster walleye rightaway where the river bends-brought it to 5 feet from shore then 10lb line snapped. Current is strong there, and hitting the bottom with crawlers and cut bait is really working.

There is a turn off of River Road in St. Paul.

on FORD PARKWAY(st paul), take the River Road (close to the PETCO)exit and take a left on Mississippi Blvd, follow this down past the ford plant. About half a mile or so, you will see the entrance for HIDDEN FALLS (right before McGoffan I think). Just go straight down and you can park by the boat landing. I normally walk towards the dam and fish the points.

I'm heading down there on friday afternoon. email me if you want

PS: I think it's better to fish with other people in the evenings over there, have seen some strung out creeps around

North Hidden Falls entrance "boat Ramp" is on Magoffin Street. South Hidden Falls entrance is south of Mississippi River Boulevard and Prior Avenue.

Good Luck!

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
