There are plenty of channels, but not sure of flats. All the years I've fish the crow haven't seen one come out yet.
Check the small streams and river trend and search for the crow river

Just channel cats unless someone is personally stocking it. Also nice eyes, smallies and pike.

ebass where do you primarily see most of the smallies on the crow? I live in waconia and can get to a few different parts of the crow not far from here. I know that out by cokato I have cought a few, just wondering other good areas. Thanks

I haven't boated up it YET, so only from shore. Hanover area. I normally go for kittys while shore fishing, but once in awhile a bass or eye will hit a soaked crawler.

Plus I hear about all the stories about the big bass, eyes and pike in there.

Mr Special knows more about this river than I do. He's more of a cat man but I'm converting him into bass fishing.

I'll have to get out there and let you know. I wish I could be more of a help.

Now if you want to talk about the sippi around the 694 area or Anoka area let me know. I also know the upper croix

Thank you,
But I think I've successfully converted you into a RiverRat cat guy.

But on the Crow around the Waconia area, I would try the bridge at Cr25 or the dam in Watertown for starters. Here and there I've picked up some smallies and some really nice ones. For the most part I catch walleye's, northerns and of coarse the almighty catfish.
I've seemed to catch more smallies on the north fork from Rockford area and near Dayton.
Check out the small streams and rivers trend.
We're planning a float trip down the river sometime this summer.

Good luck hope this helps

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
