Anything hitting in this stretch of river? Is the water still high?

I live on the Miss just west of becker so I sure can give you reports if youd like...and yes its still pretty high. Every time it starts to go down we seem to get some more rain and up it goes again. I,ll keep you posted on when it starts to go down again.
Later, Pete

Guys,
Don't let the high water turn you off to fishing the Miss. The smallies are really going "great guns" right now and they are really concentrated in the shallows. Pitch jigs and plugs to any shallow rip/rap type shoreline and hang on! Nav

Oh yeah...they are incidental fish for me until this Saturday. The walleyes are "literally" hanging in the same areas as the bass! On my last trip I caught two walleyes, aprox. 16" in length and my next pitch "bang" an 18" smallie from the same hole! Nav

I just got a new job today at Great River Energy, there is a GREAT park right across the street that some folks were catching walleyes and smallies during their lunch breaks...

Walleye GFA -
The outflow from the plant (your plant now, I suppose) is under that big concrete semi-circular deck upriver from the park. If a guy who works there knew the water temp and wanted to share it with say a guy who doesn't, he could really help a guy out wink.gif The back-current from that thing is over a rocky bottom.

Now you work in the neighborhood I fish in.

6/1 report

Two hours - 4 small channels, one smallish carp, one small smallmouth and a snapping turtle. Saw two big carp landed. Minnows abundant as forage. Should've brought a trap.

Kevin-
If I see you out there, which RP is you? I keep seeing a beige hi-pro a lot. Sunday I saw two beige hi-pros, a green low-pro and a green hi-pro.

I'm in the boat Dennis used (stand up CC LoPro) or a Gray DC LoPro.
Maybe we can hook up. If I get all my work done, I may have Sat PM open. Call me on my cell 314 378 2685.
