Koronis and Hwy 55 bridge

7 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has been fishing the Highway 55 bridge for sunfish yet. They should be bitting soon and hope someone out there has tried it already. thanks, ff

I stopped by there yesterday afternoon on the way home from work and talked to a couple of the guys fishing near the bridge. They had not caught anything at that time. One said he was fishing for crappies, but if you ask me, he's a couple weeks early. Maybe he was just marking his spot for the upcoming shoulder to shoulder battle under the bridge.

If we get a couple warm days that are toward Rice Lake can put out some nice fish. This early it's got more pike in thse back waters.

I didn't make it down there this weekend, but I heard at the baitshop that they were starting to catch some sunnies on sat. evening. They should definitely be moving in there soon. This week will be a safe bet. Might even try it out tonight. I'll let ya know how it goes.

I made it down there this morning. The water level was way to high to fish. You cant even stand under the bridge without waders. A couple guys where there and had a few sunnies but not many. The water is moving to fast to fish. It might be a couple weeks till it goes down. ff

thanks for the report, i didn't get down there. sounds like a boat is going to be the way to go. if there is that much water around, the whole channel from koronis to rice will be pretty good. but it seems that they always like to pile up near the bridge. that system needed a good flush, there has been a big problem with getting between the two lakes the past couple years. but there always seems to be crap floating in the current when people go up river and start stirring it up. that shouldn't be happening with the deep water this spring.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
