Dam at SCSU

3 posts in this topic

Anyone know where there is access to the river by the dam at the SCSU college?
Boat landings? Fishing piers? shore fishing? Is the fishing
usually better just upriver of the dam or just below?
Any help is appreciated, Pete

My latest trips to the river have been good and I expect them to get better with falling water temps. Smallies have been active around deeper holes within a couple of miles downstream of the 10th street dam. Lots of people have been fishing from shore, which at times can be good on both sides of the river. I mainly fish from a smaller boat inorder to gain access to holes down river. I will CAUTION anybody with a boat larger than 16'. It's hard on lower units and you don't need a boat that big to effectively fish this stretch.

I am able to take my customers fishing in a 15' gruman sport boat with a 6HP. It's a great small river boat.

Good luck. Nav

I live in hte St Cloud area but have never fished the river. I am intersted in using my 16' boat to fish the area south of hte Dam in St Cloud. Is there enough water there to support this size of boat? If not, How about at the Clearwater access? Thanks for the help!
