Depends where you want to fish, the upper or lower lake. The launch on the south side of lake city is nice, but can be busy. There is also a decent launch on the north side of Lake city. 4 seasons bait in Red Wing is Ok. It is just past Mcdonalds.

Herky, Try the Hok-Si-La public landing on the north side of lake city then. It is a short trip to Maiden Rock from there, plus there are few points you can work around on your way up too. Good luck out there!

Stop in to Ike's Bait & Tackle. We'll show you where to go and give you information on where the fish are biting.

Take hwy 61 into town and turn right at the Perkins. Follow the service road back under the bridge and we are the big green building next to the Super 8 motel.

We where just voted one of the top 10 bait stores in Minnesota by Minnesota Tourism.

      That sounds encouraging. Did you notice all the dead carp on shore? I wonder what's up with that, a virus or something maybe?

      I've never trout fished in MN and was hoping to get some help as a newcomer to the state. I know there are a lot of streams but I've also read that DNR info on them is often out of date and I dont want to drive an hour or more to a desolate stream.    Most seem to either have only browns or only small brooks. I really am after some medium size, 12 to 14 inches, rainbow trout for the smoker so I definitely will release any big browns if I catch one.    I've got waders and a kayak and am willing to do what is necessary to get to good, less pressured water.    Bonus offer, I have 2 very stable fishing kayaks, you can stand up in them, and would be more than happy to let you use one if you wanted to organize a float down river in exchange for showing me a decent spot to get some rainbows. Any takers or advice?    Edit - I live in Andover and would prefer to keep the drive below an hour and a half unless it's a well worth while stretch of water.

      That's a really neat boat

      Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

      Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately.
