Osceola

3 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone has been fishing from shore near the osceola bridge. I was thinking about giving it a try this weekend but I wasn't sure if it would be worth it.

Any reports/help would be appreciated.

The knock about that area is the huge numbers of canoes floating down the river...and most of which take out at that landing. You wouldn't think that would be a problem if your fishing from shore, but for some reason the majority of those canoers feel it very necessary to hug the shoreline as they drift down, and they apparently have no problems at all running over your fishing lines. It bugs me that they have that whole river to go down but they decide to stay tight along the shorelines and make no effort to avoid your lines. It's annoying and disrespectful. Sorry for rambling, but I had to vent. As far as the fishing goes, you'll catch everything that swims in the river...mostly suckers and redhorse though.

The canoe folks bank at Osceola, some go all the way down to Williams O'brien. Problem with canoists is that the newbies really don't know how to steer. The really do run into your fishing lines while trying to avoid it. At least I believe that's the case.

I haven't been down to Osceola. In the past, once in while you can catch a walleye/sauger in Osceola. Plenty of small mouth bass in the area. Lot's of suckers and sheepshead. A kitty here and there and sturgeons.

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
