Cannon River - Northfield

6 posts in this topic

Has any posters fished this river? I see people fishing in town but I've never seen anyone catch anything... I'm guessing lots of carp?

It depends on where you fish it - the river below the dams in faribo gets a lot of activity. If you are a little more adventuresome and want to wade to the falls in Northfield, there are some BIG walleyes, northerns, and striped bass up there. I would recommend wearing waders as there can be a lot of garbage swept into the water - do not go barefoot! The stretch upstream by Carleton College to the Waterford bridge also gives up some nice fish.

Walleyes r us, Thanks for the tip. It's nice to know that there is the potential to catch walleyes in Northfield.

If you check in the Small rivers and streams above. Go to page 2 Cannon River section. You will see that I posted some other spots to try.

I was born and raised in Dundas and basically lived on the river for most of my younger days, Really fun place to fish.

As I have grown this is where my daughters cut their teeth on fishing.

Good Luck and have a blast.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
