River fishing rice creek??

6 posts in this topic

I wondered if you would catch anything in the rice creek, I know there are fish in lakes connected to it and have caught some in the summer but don't know if any would be in the river at this time. I kinda doubt anyone has tried it but if you have let me know if you got anything...

Where can you fish Rice Creek at besides the mouth at Sucker? I always thought it was off limits. I seen the DNR writing tickets last spring near Vadnais.

In the spring there are always a bunch of people fishing on the southwest corner of County Rd 10 & County Rd H in Moundsview across from the Mermaid. Don't know what they're catching but it's pretty busy for about a month straight.

That would be carp snagging (or used to be anyway). Never actually did it but worked with a guy who did. He said that when it's busy it can get pretty ugly, as you can imagine (the creek is maybe 20' across and they're throwing weighted treble hooks).

Carp snagging by the mermaid. We used to do it when we were kids. Now the authorities will boot you out since it is illegal. People fish the creek where it comes out of Lake Peltier. Northern,crappie,bullhead,carp. We used to catch walleye down by the mouth where it enters the Mississippi. Also below the dam at rice lake. The water levels have changed alot since back then. You can also fish where it enters Long lake.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff
