Wabasha Backwaters

3 posts in this topic

Are the backwaters along hwy 25 producing any panfish yet? I fished there from shore last year and did pretty well on perch, was thinking about using a canoe this year. Maybe next weekend when we finally get some warmer weather. Any info will be helpful, thanks.

Some shore fishers were fishing for whatever last weekend. I saw them catch a bass on a bobber and minner I assume. It was cold and raining and when we went by they were gone. Also, with this super cold weather they prolly moved out to deeper/warmer water. Good luck

Yes, those backwater are doing excellent with the perch right now. We caught a lot of them.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.
