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.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
