Stillwater Access

4 posts in this topic

How is the access on the north end of stillwater looking? I was thinking of doing some evening/night fishing in a couple weeks and am wondering if I should go there or launch down at prescott instead.

The whole river is really low right now, especially upstream. But the boom site access drops off pretty good at the launch, so you shouldn't have any problems with a "normal" fishing boat. Just be extra careful in the shallow areas between the access and the main channel, and near the narrows and islands if you go upstream.

Problem with Stillwater is, it seems it is always full. Try to stay away from this on the weekend. Midweek is not near as bad.

Yeah, it would be during the week. How is the bite at night? What are people catching under the bridge? Any after dark silver action at the marina?

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
