Released Water

5 posts in this topic

International Falls is releasing as much water now as they did last November, which resulted in muddy water for a week. No walleye fishing the last day of this season and those coming to sturgeon fish in the next week, bring heavy weights for the current will be strong. Look for improving conditions soon after I-Falls reduces the outflow.

How does this affect your strategy for fishing sturgeon? Do you do anything different other than adding weight? Does the bite slow down much? TIA

The answer to all three of your questions is no. If you find a promising looking hole, start at the top where it starts to taper down, it that isn't working, let out some anchor rope til your fishing the bottome of the hole, if that isn't working, let out some more so you're fishing the incline back out of the hole. Give each spot at least 1/2 an hour to an hour. If you get no bites, find another hole, and start over. Good luck

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
