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.

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
