Fishing North of Stillwater

5 posts in this topic

I've never fished on a river before. How's the walley fishing between St. Crox Falls and Stillwater in the Spring/Summer/Fall? Where's the best place to try?

Thanks!

Many anglers fish that stretch all open water season and do well. Other anglers complain about short walleyes (less than 15"s). I know I like it in Spring. Though I have never put much into the Fall bite up north. In terms of where to, much of it is the same, but in general areas with a significant amount of deep water will hold more fish on the structure (breaks) near the deepwater. The area is dominated by sand, so note areas where you find rock.

Keep catchin'

I fish up in osceola in the fall.I bow hunt just south and hunt the am and fish the afternoon.We usually just cast from shore in the log jams.Husky jerk or big jointed raps work good most the time.I the fall up there the bigger the bait the better.Usually just catch northers and have cought a few eyes but not one under 15 inches.Most the fish we catch are in 1-3 fow tucked into the structure.Its a blast!! Last year got a 35 in northern in a foot of water.He came out from under a mess of leaves that were floating on the surface and when the hit they hit hard.Its something else in shallow water like that.

Hey turk why is it,that the 14s alway seem to stay up north? There's gotta be food for the bigger one's isn't there. I do the mojority of my fishing from the Marine to stillwater and i do catch some nice walleyes in the spring but after july you might as well go south.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
