River Fishing

13 posts in this topic

I am heading up to LOW this weekend and have never fished there in the fall before. We are staying at Riverbend and I was wondering where to start in the river. I was hoping for as little travel as possible, but am open to anything. Any advise would be great.

It looks like FM faithful will own the River Bend this

weekend. See you all at breakfast.

The river fishing is very easy, it requires some patience.

If your watch other boats you will find that they are

every where. If you try to anchor on the edge of the river

channel so you swing back and forth over a couple of foot

difference in depth that is what most will be doing.

You will not have to travel far. Bring warm clothes.

And have a good anchor. On the river a good anchor is

a sea spike style anchor. Most other anchors will not

hold you and that can ruin your weekend in a hurry.

Make sure your rope is long enough as well. I think the formula is that you need like 3 times the depth of the water to set an anchor to hold well.

My dad bought and used a substandard anchor last weekend in his boat. I should say he attempted to use a substandard anchor last weekend. He had to reset about 50 times. He did have plenty of rope length.

I'll be up at Adrian's this weekend in my boat with my dad, and step mom. Black and Tan Alumacraft TS185.

Curt,

Do I need to bring my goggles for breakfast? I've heard the toast can be flying pretty good.

You should see what happens when he attacks the pancakes and hash browns!

Sometimes you have to let a guy have his space. grin.gif

      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.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL
