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.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
