Osceola

What kind of fish should I expect to catch if I fished in this area of the St. Croix.

Not looking for any hot spots, just wondering if there are any numbers or size of practically any species of fish.

Pretty much all the species youll find in the lower Croix are in the upper sections as well.Tunrevir and friends are pretty plugged in to those areas and may be able to share a few tips on locations for select species.....

i know there is some really good crappie fishing around osceola. I haven't fished there enough to know any spots, but I know people that do very well crappie fishing. otherwise i know the smallie fishing is good. walleye fishing is good, but they are more concentrated in certain spots than others so you need to know how to find them. hope that helps some...

AFL, there are some decent fish in this stretch of the river. Look to brush piles, rocks and rip rap areas the upper and lower ends of islands and the outside bends for the most productive areas. You can get a mixed bag of fish there. The bridge pilings can and do often hold crappies.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
