Canoeing the Zumbro

2 posts in this topic

I would like to go canoeing on the Zumbro River and was wondering which stretch had better fishing. Green bridge to Zumbro Falls or Zumbro Falls to Hammond? How long does each take? Which has less traffic? Thanks.

Kasey, for the less traffic run I would choose the Green Bridge to the Falls. Plan on at least six hours, and that's if you don't fish every hole.

The Falls to Hammond is a busier run, but if you leave before 8:00 a.m. you won't see many people. That trip will take a minimum of 4 hours and if you spend time fishing the good spots it can take longer. For a time judgement "Wall Rock" is the half way point.

Good luck Kasey and let us know how you did. And don't forget the camera! grin.gif

      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.
