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!!

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.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
