River Fishing

6 posts in this topic

I am looking for a good place to river fish(from shore) for walleyes on the days where the wind is too bad for taking out the little boat on lakes. I live in mankato, so if anyone knows anywhere to try on the minnesota, blue earth, or le seuer your advice would be much appreciated. I am not looking for boat fishing spots because i dont feel like losing a lower unit on the river. Thanks everyone.

Without giving any specifics, just look for water inlets, creeks, fresh water springs.

When I lived in Kato I'd hit Sibley park where the Blue Earth and MN River run together. Also try below the Rapidan Dam. There are serveral spots along 169 all including 7 mi park(or is it 9mi?), Kasota, and Ottowa. Plenty of river action to be had in the area. My best advise would be to put in the time at several locations to see where you have the best luck. Good luck and have fun!!

thanks for the info guys. i have tried below rapidan dam and have only caught small channel cats. there is no where there to get away from the really heavy current. i will try looking around for some inlets to fish on the mn river.

Try Land of Memories out by the South Bend Township. Been out there few times this last weekend on the windy days and did manage to catch a few eyes along with some catfish. So it makes it fun.

Go to Sibley or Land of Memories. I have always had good luck. Move around though, some spots are better than others.

      This ice season  has been in the books on the st croix for about a week now. I ended my year out there with a 50" sturgeon.

      I have been busy with Work ... went down to check it out North access this morning.  Definitely good enough to walk out.  a tall guy walked a big sled right out.  was also a clam 2 seater pull over out on the ice.  The wind however is blowing very cold!  I do not have a sled for walking out ... so hoping for ATV ice soon!  I went searching at Princeton Wallmart if they had any leftover sleds, no go.  Will have to pick one up this week.   Bob
