Opener - Redwood Falls Area

11 posts in this topic

Anyone out there fishing the Redwood Falls area on the opener? I may go try a few inlets, probably from shore. We had good fishing last year, many willing 'eyes to be had. Hopefully we can find them again this year in between rain showers.

i Will be fishing close to redwood and the water level is good it is at a normal level for the spring time i was out on wed. in the boat lots of fishable spots and lots of good looking spots the river should start to drop in a couple of weeks and it will drop 5 to 7 feet to be around normal summer levels

only fished for a couple hours sat afternoon and I got one walleye that was just under 18". Nice health fish....haven't heard much from anyone else. I fished between Redwood and Delhi in a creek mouth.

Good Luck!

there is a couple spots but most are not public. I guess I always fish from the boat so I really haven't paid much attention, sorry. There is some areas that are public tho. There is the Renville Co. Parks. One near Delhi, a couple between Fairfax and Franklin and of course the public accesses. Come down and take a drive along the river bottom road and check them out. You may be surprised on how many spots there is.

Good Luck!

I do use renville Co. parks every time I go.Just thought I might get a different spot.I have'nt gone downstream of the park north of Deli yet I catch lots up there but I'm lookin for a over 50 flat and I dont think the waters where i've been fishin hold em 35# is my largest.DNR tells me Morton and down holds lots a 40s and some larger.

I used to fish that stretch of river you are talking about. My best up there is at 31#. When I do fish the river for cats, and I have not been since last year, I fish downstream from morton. I like that stretch and have had a couple hogs on that I never got in the boat. I need to find a place to get some bullheads that will actually bite when I want them to. Bait is always my biggest problem.

Good Luck!

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
