River Fishing

Recommended Posts

Beavers16

I am heading up to LOW this weekend and have never fished there in the fall before. We are staying at Riverbend and I was wondering where to start in the river. I was hoping for as little travel as possible, but am open to anything. Any advise would be great.

It looks like FM faithful will own the River Bend this

weekend. See you all at breakfast.

The river fishing is very easy, it requires some patience.

If your watch other boats you will find that they are

every where. If you try to anchor on the edge of the river

channel so you swing back and forth over a couple of foot

difference in depth that is what most will be doing.

You will not have to travel far. Bring warm clothes.

And have a good anchor. On the river a good anchor is

a sea spike style anchor. Most other anchors will not

hold you and that can ruin your weekend in a hurry.

Make sure your rope is long enough as well. I think the formula is that you need like 3 times the depth of the water to set an anchor to hold well.

My dad bought and used a substandard anchor last weekend in his boat. I should say he attempted to use a substandard anchor last weekend. He had to reset about 50 times. He did have plenty of rope length.

I'll be up at Adrian's this weekend in my boat with my dad, and step mom. Black and Tan Alumacraft TS185.

Curt,

Do I need to bring my goggles for breakfast? I've heard the toast can be flying pretty good.

Toast??

You should see what happens when he attacks the pancakes and hash browns!

Sometimes you have to let a guy have his space. grin.gif

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
    • Borch
      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!
    • ozzie
      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!
    • YellowFinRed
      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.
    • Gillraker
      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).
