Shore/Dock Fishing-Rochester Area?

Recommended Posts

Mcrae

Hello...I am new to the Rochester, MN. area (moved from Colorado)and I am looking for some good areas to fish from the shore/dock?

Also, is fishing allowed out of the main river that runs through Rochester? (Within City Limits) I have not been able to find any regulations for this.

Thanks...

trout, since the season there is open year round. check out the special regs on that lake before fishing though. people also target bass and panfish in foster's as well.

The locals on this forum should be able to help you out finding other spots around Roch. to shorefish....

Good Luck!

County road 68 (Wabasha county) has a number of places to pull over and fish the Zumbro River. The road goes from Zumbro Falls to Hammond. Smallies are the fish to target right now. But there are walleyes and northerns in there too. Plus every rough fish you can think of.

Mcrae,

Welcome to FM and HotSpotOutdoors.com

If you haven't already, take a peek in the Rochester forum. We talk about shore fishing in there about every day.

Rochester Forum

The river that runs through town can be fished in any adjacent public park (there's several), but may not be fished from private land. You might get a better response if you post this in the Roch forum as well.

Foster Arends, Willow Creek, Silver Lake, Chester Woods, Lake Zumbro are all decent fisheries and all have public docks to fish off of.

Also, find someone who lives on lake George and can let you in there. Its the lake right off of the Zumbro and highway 52, by the Think credit union. Its usually pretty good. Private but pretty good. Otherwise get out of town a little ways, there are some great trout streams in that part of the state, well worth the drive.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
