Cottonwood River Smallmouth???

Recommended Posts

tjbassmaster

I was looking at the DNR's Public Access maps for accesses on the mn river, and on the second page there is a list of the landings and it also says what types of fish that are in the body of water that the access is on, and under the Cottonwood river it says there are Smallmouth Bass in it and I can't believe there are smallmouth bass in there. So I guess I was just wondering if anyone has ever caught any in there or heard of them being caught.

I've caught smallies out of the cottonwood. Nothing to bring to taxidermy, but I've caught them.

Big River

i've seen 5 lb + caught in new ulm when the schells brewery dam was still there. every once in a while i hear about some being caught still, just find deep holes early in the season also can be good for walleyes to.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
