Finding a creek?

Recommended Posts

Bassman

I was just wondering if there is anyway to find a creek that is on the dnr web site but is not posted on it.

I ran into a similar situation last year when trying a find a trout creek to take my nephew fishing at. I ended up contacting the DNR for directions and they were more than helpful. They also told me about other streams in the area that I had not considered. There is one small creek outside of Detroit Lakes that I have tried to find but just can't seem to locate inspite of a map, good verbal directions, a sign marking the management area and a paved parking lot and trail in the area. Although we came across what appeared to be a small creek (a few inches deep) we walked quite aways and couldn't find anything remotely resembled a creek that might have fish in it. Anyone know of this creek that could give me better directions blush.gif

Thanks!

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
