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!

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
