No boat, Lock and Dam 5

4 posts in this topic

No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive

While there might be some action there I think you would be better off fishing one of the fishing floats.  Alma would be my first choice. 

Good Luck!

I fished out of Bass Camp Friday evening. there were a number of shore fisherman fishing on both the MN and WI sides. I did not see anyone catch anything and fishing was slow for me as well in the boat.

Been to bass camp about 5 times.  Nothing bigger than a hammer handle.  Most times there have been a few others out on the pier.  Haven't seen them catch much either.  

 

Think the H2O needs to warm up a tad. 

Last night a couple dinky perch and anot her noerhern.  The guy next to me caught 2 sheep

      Big Watab lake "St Cloud area" between Cold Spring and St Joseph. Couple smaller bodies of water in the area as well.... Mn DNR lakefinder is helpfull. Couple small steams in this area too.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
