Well, here I sit in hotel looking at all the snow outside! Trying to make it to the grand canyon and it looks very iffy grin If you never have driven high country switchbacks in the snow, you haven't lived! Good thing they gave us a 4wd explorer!

Might get to fish later this week back around Phoenix...we'll see.

Made it up to the canyon yesterday morning...awesome! Drove back on a scenic road in another snow storm...crazy!

I got a guy lined up for catfishing the Colorado tomorrow night at Blythe,Ca. Lots of water but we'll see what happens....He'll make the call wether to fish or not. I can always go look for rocks grin

You could always try the Salt River right outside of Phoenix. It has both flatties and they stock it with trout in the winter.

Got back to Phoenix yesterday....My guide decided to go prefish for some bass tourney..oh well. They LOVE bass down here...I could get a bass guide for $300 (not)

I did go exploring the Salt River today..way high but clean. Found some guys fishing trout with fly rods and gettin a few. Also found an old rat fishing the bottom...he was having more fun grin I have no gear with me crazy

I'm sittin here at a public library using the puter...better get back to the old folks resort and see what my oldfolks are up to...lots of Minnesota plates around here! I'll be back to the flood zone soon.

Hey Shack...I can put you on a trout or two grin

      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.

      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..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.

      Thank you Vermilliongold. This took care of the problem. 
    • eg_gophers2124
      Yes it is open. It is $7.00 this year. It is a nice access and I use it every time instead of one of the public accesses. It is on Hwy 24 & county rd 39. It is a little old lady that owns it and collects the money. There is a bucket and notepad to write your plate number on if she isn't home.

      We have rented a cabin on Sylvan Lake between Pillager and Brainerd for the family this weekend. My 13 year old really would like to find some bass and pike. I have never fished the lake and don't fish for bass or pike often, does anyone have a fishing report and tips of what depth/lures to use? We do have a boat to get around the lake.  TIA
