Saturday on the Zumbro

14 posts in this topic

My friend Eric and I braved the elements yesterday and canoed from the Green bridge to Zumbro falls. We got on the water at 7:30 am and at first I thought it was going to be a miserable day because it was storming and the wind was blowing. To my surprise, the weather cleared off and we caught a ton of fish. We each caught 30+ smallies, several white bass, and a sauger. The largest smallie was 18" and weighed 2.5 lbs. The sauger was almost 2 lbs. Most of the fish were caught on a crayfish rattletrap and a jig and twister tail.

This was the first time that I have canoed that stretch of river and I was shocked. The water was very clean and clear. Most of my canoeing has taken place closer to Rochester where the river tends to be dirty.

Here are a couple smallies that my friend caught. I will post some more pics later.

Nice work Kasey!!! I love the look of those dark river fish.

Did you spot any pike/muskie on the trip?

Yeah, we saw two dandy northern pike or muskie but they were not interested in our baits. I am hoping to get out there one more time before the weather gets too miserable.

Nice report Kasey! Let me know if you go again. Maybe I could tag along. We got a canoe and a small pond prowler.

Is anybody else having trouble seeing the pictures? All I get is the red x thing.

If you right click the red X you get a menu chose properties and it should give you the address to the pictures copy the address and paste it in your address bar and hit enter. you should see the picture. Then just hit the back button on the browser and it should show up in the post.

Same for me, no pictures visable. By the way, how long does that canoe trip take?

We put in at 7:30 am and took out at 6 pm. I think it is nine river miles. We brought along an anchor so we could fish every hole.

I am able to see the pics this morning. Is there something that I did incorrectly? I uploaded my photos to Kodak photo gallery and then copied the address here. Do I need to do anything else?

You can right click on the red X and select Show Picture and that worked for me.

I don't know why they will not show right away.

Nice day on the water. What fun. Thanks for sharing.

      It's been dredged to 4'. The lake still has a sandbar. He did not dredge past the creek mouth

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes
