Little Falls area

8 posts in this topic

Hey everyone I'm rather new to the Little Falls area here, moved from the Avon area. I am used to a lot of lakes around me and looking for some that are worth going out on for a bit when I have a little time. Anyone know of any? I see Green Prairie is close but havent heard too much from it. Thanks all

There aren't many lakes that are close to LF so i think your best bet would be to do some short traveling...

There are a lot of smaller lakes around the swanville/grey eagle area that are good for producing a lot of sunfish and crappies but they don't seem to be very good for size.

Bigger lakes like Alex, Sham, and Fishtrap are only a 20 minute drive away up highway 10.

As for me I do most of my fishing in the BLA which is about 40 minutes from small falls.

Oh and don't overlook the Mississippi; if you really get to know it you can catch a lot and a wide variety of fish out of there.

I fish Green Prairie a fair amount for panfish. They aren't huge but you can usually get enough for a meal.

Pierz Fish Lake is another one thats not too far from Little Falls(about 12 miles).

Lake Beauty, west on 27 about 20 miles, is another thats worth trying.

There are a lot more lakes once you start to get in that 30 mile range.

Thanks much! I traveled out to Swanville/Grey Eagle area before I like a lot of the lakes out there. Big birch, mound, etc. I never tried Alex, sham or fishtrap yet, got to study the layout a little bit and get a decent day off to dedicate to it being bigger lakes. Thanks for the advice though really appreciate it!

Mississippi just makes me nervous, one day I'll get out there

I just got off Gree Prairie tonight, tried from bout 200 to 445 for a bit. Right off the beach drilled several and just jumped from each one. Fish wouldnt take anything for me I tried everything. They would come off the bottom, stare at it, and sink back down...weird. I'll have to put some time into it though. Thanks for the tips!!

If you don't feel comfortable fishing the river in the winter, make sure you go this spring and summer. The river is still one of my favorite places to go. Memorial weekend seems to always be a good time. You wouldn't believe the different species of fish you can get out there.

Say Crappies are pretty hot in the afternoons on Lake Alexander in Lincoln. the last two weeks we have been over there and limited out on Crappies in less than 2 hours. Were being kind of picky they were ranging from 7" to 11" on average. Good fishing though and lots of fun.

I think we are going to head up there soon, hopefully we are not too late. I'm not too concerned about the size, the wife wants to get out there a bit and we are just looking to catch a couple and toss them back type of thing. Hopefully we can get a couple before they shut off.
