question about st. louis

Recommended Posts

bubster77

Hey im new to duluth and am going here for college. I used to live in the twin cities and did a ton of fishing down there. My favorite fishing to do is catfishing. I had heard that you can catch channels in st. louis river. I was just wondering if this is true, it seemed to me the water may be a bit to cold for them. Can i just go and find some shorefishing spots towards the upper parts here around town or would that be a waste of my time?

Ive caught some catfish in the st. louis lately, where it flows through cloquet there by usg. Bobber and a crawler.

I used to do some float trips via canoe in the Brookston area off of Hwy 2. We would drag shiners. Caught lots of cats in the 5 lb class and a walleye every now and then. Sometimes we would sit on the bank upstream from Brookston and we had good fishing doing that. There is a gravel road adjacent to the RR track and the river. Take that and look for the pulloffs.

In the Duluth area fish under the Oliver Bridge. Wi. license because you will be standing in Oliver or there are some spots on water street that have deeper water with wood close by that the cats will hand in. Just below the 23 bridge there is a monument parking area on the river just after the creek and you can get cats there. Also right under the 23 bridge in the Fon Du Lac campground.

Not many numbers and size is average.

Best bet if you can drive a bit is Brookston area right abover the bridge is a landing and a road that goes from there. Follow it in the daylight and you will find some nice spots on both sides of the river.

Be prepared for rowdy drunks on the weekends though.

Do you go to UMD? I am in my sophmore year at UMD, and if Im not in class I am likely on the water. shoot me an email if you want to go give the river a try. I have never tried it, but am up for giving it a shot. Most of my fishing up here is on the big lake.

      Nice gill Rick

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.
    • Borch
      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
