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!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.
