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.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
