Shore fishing By Lindbergh State Park

6 posts in this topic

We're camping the weekend after Labor day at Lindbergh park and were wondering if anyone knows the area? Would there be any good shore fishing in that area at that time? Thanks guys!

They are a few areas around the park and then up towards town. I think you can rent canoes at the park which would be a better plan for fishing that stretch of the river. Right now the fishing is pretty good for smallies, walleyes and an occasional musky. The smallies will attack topwater baits in the morning and evening otherwise you can pitch jigs and plugs to current breaks all day long. Nav.

Hey Nav,
can you tell me a little about the Cat fishing on the Mississsippi in your neck of the woods?

I'm getting a little hooked on these babies.

Sorry Rick, but catfish are incidental catches for me. I usually find them in the fall below the two dams in St. Cloud. The biggest one to date was a touch under 10 pounds. I couldn't tell you what kind it was??? It was big and UUUGGGLLLYYY!!! I remember my flasher was light-up like a x-mas tree in the deepest hole below the dam and that's where I caught it, so there must have been more just like it. The catfish, up here, pretty much get ignored by most fishermen at the dam. It's too bad because it was a heckuva battle. Nav

Hey Rick, I fish the Clearwater/Monticello area for cats a few times a year. There are no flatheads, but lots of nice 5-10 channels. As you probably know, the river up there is shallow and rocky with a fairly fast current. Be careful running a boat through there with all the big boulders. I use a jon boat, but I also like to wade or fish from shore. You'll find the cats on the current breaks, the heads of holes and in the fast water riffles. Also try bridge pillars or behind some of those big boulders. I like fishing brush piles, but there aren't too many in that area. Basically, anything that looks like it would hold walleyes probably has cats. I like to fish cut-bait for the bigger fish. Vern
