Creeks

I saw these in a different forum and thought it would be cool to do a local one. And i have always wondered what is in some of these creeks and little rivers that are all over the place. I am suprised what i have seen in the creeks around here. There is a creek in town that i have seen carp, bullhead, sunfish, crappie, perch, and 2 very nice size walleyes i would guess in the 17-20 inch range, and in st.james creek i have seen carp bullhead sunfish perch and bass. Never fished those creeks so don't know if they bite but i have seen them in there. Also Lots of shiners in both. What have you guys all seen or caught in the area creeks and rivers?

My creek and river experience is minimal at best. Having said that, Lime creek at the outlet of Lime lake is awesome for fishing. I'm often amazed that the county park isn't used much. It's a very nice park, with a boat landing, and great shore fishing.

I've caught (I'm not kidding) 8,9,10,16,and 19 pound pike on the outlet of the Lime lake dam at the creek. If you like to bowfish for carp this is definately a good spot, also. I've never caught walleye, but I've caught perch and crappies in this creek, also.

Where the Des Moines river flows below cty 6 (river road) is another nice spot for perch, crappies, and an occasional walleye.

Three years ago on the Three-mile Creek by Ghent,MN I was fishing with one of my buddies on opener weekend and we each caught a 6-lb. northern and I was lucky enough to reel in a 24.5inch walleye! Second biggest walleye in my life and I still cannot believe it.

I used to go and fish a creek that had a bunch of walleyes and pike in it early in the year. They were some easy pickins as well!

I would imagine in the early spring (ice out) that any lake with crappies, 'gills, or perch that would maybe swim up or down the creeks could potentially become great spots to try and fish! I know the creek on the south end of Lake Hanska gets hit quite a bit!

I have had some of my best walleye fishing outings on the Des Moines River on both open water and ice fishing. Fun times!

      It’s still a blast to fish

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
