Rivers.

4 posts in this topic

I'll be heading out to fish some rivers in the area this weekend. Any one else going to give them a try? With the new moon they should be on the bite and with turnover happining, I think the rivers would be a good bet.

I'll be looking for the up stream end of pools.

T,O. have you hit the rivers?

I just got back from the Blue Earth River. The fishing wasn't fast but we did manage two Walleyes, a Catfish and a 10" Mudpuppy.

The Walleyes were in 3fow or less right up tight to shore on an outside turn of the river. Just where the current deflected from the bank and made an eddy.

A Yellow/Orange 1/4oz jig head and a Fathead is what was working for us but the bite was slow, so another color may work better.

Not yet but I hope to soon if I don't fish Mille Lacs or any lakes down here within the coming days and into the weekend.

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
