Cottonwood River Smallmouth???

5 posts in this topic

I was looking at the DNR's Public Access maps for accesses on the mn river, and on the second page there is a list of the landings and it also says what types of fish that are in the body of water that the access is on, and under the Cottonwood river it says there are Smallmouth Bass in it and I can't believe there are smallmouth bass in there. So I guess I was just wondering if anyone has ever caught any in there or heard of them being caught.

I've caught smallies out of the cottonwood. Nothing to bring to taxidermy, but I've caught them.

i've seen 5 lb + caught in new ulm when the schells brewery dam was still there. every once in a while i hear about some being caught still, just find deep holes early in the season also can be good for walleyes to.

      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.
