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.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
