Lake Pepin/Lake City

7 posts in this topic

With all of the rain in the area can anyone tell me if the river is up (and how much)at Lake City. Has anyone been fishing and how have you been doing?

Thanks in advance.

Looks like it is up only 1 foot from normal. water levels

Not sure about the bite. I haven't heard any reports.

I was out on Sunday, hardly seemed up at all, they must be letting it all flow through, which is weird with the high water down by Winona. You would think they would be holding more. Fishing was pretty good for smallies on top end of Pepin on Sunday

Hellabass,

What is a good spot on the top side of Pepin to fish for smallies. I've been out a few times on the lower end, but never been out on the top. Thanks

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.

      Great fishing everywhere?  Please give me the resorts and depths of the great fishing as that will help me decide where to go.
