Any advice on the best area to fish between Brainerd and Little Falls. I have tried to research this area and find very little info. and no maps...It looks like there are ****s?? south of Little falls - does that limit your fishing area if you put in by little falls?? Would it be better to go North of Little Falls and then work South?? If so, any advice on areas/access to put in??

There are two boat access above the dam in Little Falls. Both are in town, one on the East side one on the West. Below the dam there are also two. The one on the West side is located just South of Lindbergh state park. The other is on the East side six miles South of town off of Hilton Rd.
Both stretches offer some great fishing.

Tour Pro-

Thanks for the advice - in your opinion is it just fine - and enough water to fish from the Little Falls area south - or would you start North and work your way down to Little Falls?? Our original plans were to start by Little Falls and work south - but didnt know if the water was too shallow there or if there are more ****s just a little ways further south that you would run into.

Thanks much for your help- it is greatly appreciated!

Hoffer,

The river South of Little Falls is pretty much worry free as far as rocks and shallow water as long as you stay South of the access at Lindburgh. If you do go North, once you hit the golf course I would stay to the East side of the river, lots of large under water boulders in the middle and a few on the West side. The only other spot that you have to worry about South of the access is a sunken island located about 1-1/2 miles down river It's right after where the Swan river enters the Mississippi. It is right in the middle of the river. You can go around it on the West or East side. If you put your boat in at Lindburgh and are heading South there is an island a short distance from the access stay on the West side of the island, the other side is shallower. There are alot of great spots to fish on this stretch, I'll share one. The area just after the island is known as the {pipeline} this is an great spot if your after walleyes. A jig and minnow on the West side or trolling the area with crankbaits will put some fish in the boat

Good luck!
