The Croix/Danbury Wis.

5 posts in this topic

I am wondering about the fishing around this area,I have never fished the river north of the Hwy #48 bridge,and wondering if it is worth my time/trouble? I am talking about the open water season so any info over the next few months would be nice.I have both a canoe and a 14' jonboat so I can be on some skinny water if need be.

I have never fished that far upstream, only from Hwy 70 bridge north about 10 miles, but can tell you that whole river from headwaters all the way to Prescott is full of smallmouth. I understand the muskey fishing is pretty decent, ocassional northerns and walleye most anywhere.

Stop at the Log Cabin Store in Danbury for better info.

Thanx DonBo

My main focus is C&R on some smallies,I did stick a fat 17" last summer by the #48 bridge while wading,and just thought about hitting the river north of there this summer.

I have fished this stretch by Danbury a few times with limited success. Imho, the further north you go the fish are smaller due to the shallow water. We fish the area lakes for bigger fish.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
