Being new to the area, what shore fishing options are there around the st. cloud campus? Would love to hook into some smallies or walleye!

South East side of 10th street bridge. I am a SCSU alum and miss that spot. Used to walk the river near the frisby golf course and catch smallies, eyes, and pike. Even had a decent muskie give me a run but it bent my jig hook staight. You will catch fish there. Good luck. I'm sure the water is quite low so just cast at the current breaks and eddies near the visible boulders. Bring extra gear as you will get snagged. cool.gif

The river is definately your best bet. Not only the 10th street dam, but the beaver islands, any of the parks along the river, and the sartell dam. Bridge pillars and rapids= smallies!

I just got back from my first trip out to the beaver islands, had some pretty good fishing. Got about 15 smallies, with 8 of them coming in the first 2 hours or so. Nothing under 12" in the first 8, a few 14-15" and a nice 17". After that it slowed down a bit and it was mainly smaller fish, but still fun. The first two I got on a super spook jr., but after that they wouldn't touch anything bigger than a 2" rapala. Orange seemed to be the color tonight, and it was a blast getting them on the ultralight. This is the first time I've caught smallies and they put up a great fight.

I was out at around 4:30 and only had one hit. Was fishing right by the pier. I did however go wadfing yesterday. I couldn't find the holes, but I was using a mepps spinner. How deep was the water and what time did you go? What was the current like?

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
