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.

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.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Then Crooked lake pier fits the bill they like corn or worms   or what city are you looking around?

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
