River smallies

3 posts in this topic

Wondering if there are anyother good spots to fish smallies from the bank of the Ottertail River? I have fished the power plant and down from orwell dam. We dont have a boat suitable for the river so it will be bank and wade fishing. Thanks.

those are two of your better spots from shore. you could try dayton hollow or the broken down dam areas. There are a lot of access points by foot in Fergus. what part of the power plant were you talking about? hoot lake or the diversion? either spot should be suitable.

I have fished both and had luck in the past, I haven't been able to get over there yet this year and figured I'd better before the summer is gone.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
