How is this stretch of the river for channel, flatheads and sturgeon? I'm always looking for a new strecth to fish.

The lower section of pool 4 is probably the best flathead water in all Minnesota for size and numbers. Oh yeah and you don't have to fish out of a dingy boat but can use a big boy boat with the navigation channel marked so moving at night is a breeze.

Great question - I am looking for the same info...especially after watching a 25-30lb flattie caught last week up by the dam. By lower section I'm assuming you mean closer to Alma? How about the lake itself and upriver to the dam? Just a wintering area?

Good fishing exists, but so do good numbers of good anglers. It's probably one of the most heavily pressured flathead fisheries in MN. Seems like in heading out to the Minnesota with Dennis, that it was more consistent. Maybe that's just because I was fishing with Dennis!

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
