River Fisherman?

4 posts in this topic

Seems like the rivers really get hot early and late season. My biggest walleye to date came shore fishing from a local river in late October. I keep hearing posts regarding the lakes in the area with a few about fishing below the dam near SCSU.

Any other reports out there on how the local rivers and streams are doing? With the low water I'd think that there'd be good success if you can get to them.

I'm planning to start doing some evening fishing for walleyes during the week down below the SCSU dam...can usually scratch a couple down there.

I won't be out at all on the weekends though with hunting seasons starting.

where are some of the better spots below the dam at SCSU?

it's been too many years since I fished there, I can't remember for the life of me where I used to go when I was in school.

the pool below the spillway, or farther into the Islands? and with the river as low as it is, I know the boat is out, where could I walk to now?

thanks for any advise~

either side of the river is good...just walk along and find the deep holes and you will find fish. There is a cement slab on the west side near the new football field that holds fish (there is a little bay right there).

Good luck.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
