Anyone know how to get to the Hudson Dam?

6 posts in this topic

I keep hearing about it but can never find it?

Is it a part of the Saint Croix River or some river that flows into the St. Croix?

Some Directions would be appreciated...if anyone knows.

Thank you.

I can't remember exactly but you can find it on the North end of town. Drive North through Hudson until you get to a bridge with a river going under it, I think its the Willow. I've heard it called lake Malileu also. I think you can see the dam from the road but can't quite remember anyway you should be able to figure it out from their it's West to the Croix which isn't far. I usually fish it from the Croix in a boat so sorry about the poor directions. I see people fishing off shore every time I'm their. I've done good for walleyes (in boat) and caught 2 sturgeon out a couple hundred yards also.

Good luck

Was there last night. Caught a 16 incher (walleye) and a small mouth bass. Walleye had no fight in it what so ever (what a waste of time). Two thumbs up on the bass. Of course, I practice catch and release.

Is the Hudson Dam a good place to fish? On the St. Croix side, or the Wisconsin lake side?

Big Ben,
The dam they are talking about is on the wis side in hudson along 35 going towards north hudson.You can either have mn or a wis license to fish here.On the St.Croix river side of the railraod bridge (with a mn license).When you e-mailed me and told me you where going to the Croix on sat are you going out on boat or shore??I figured boat.

Good luck I hope the weather turns a little in our favor soon!

      Stopped in this morning and it looks like it should be good to go.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
