Clearwater/Becker area?

5 posts in this topic

Hi does anyone know of a good fishing spot for smallies anywhere from a 1/2 mile up or downstream of the clearwater or becker landing. I'll be in my kayak so I don't want to paddle too far. Also i've never been on the mississippi so is there anything I should watch out for? thanks

Yeah, watch out for the DNR! The bass season doesn't open until 2 weeks after the walleye opener.

Ahhh, I was hoping you'd say that. Well, I hope you do get some good advice, I'm interesting in fishing that area too. I cross the river at that bridge all the time and it looks really promising down there. As low as the water has been though I think I might just throw some sandles on and wade up and down the river. When it's hot and muggy I can do that all day...very productive fishing too.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
