MN river flood plains


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

I have a "stupid question," to ask. Where can I find MN river flood plains? Or any areas where a small shallow stream enters or is connected to the MN river? I lake fish mostly and dont river fish. I am after some orange spotted sunfish. I hear there are some in the Miss. River and MN river.

I looked on google maps, but I do not really know what I am looking for.

Any help or direction will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

most of the creeks or river that feed thwe Minnesota the mouths of them are usually only accessible by boat but a few of them are

The Sand Creek there are quite a few places to fish this from shore staring in Jordan at the waterfalls.

Rush river just out of Henderson but most accessible places are around private property.

High Island Creek Same as above

There are a few more down by the Mankato area but I'm not sure what they are all called and I dont want to give false info.

I hope this helps a little bit and Good Luck

If you are looking for orange spotted sunfish any creek or small river will work. Fish by the bridges or in woody cover. Basically fish anywhere you would fine creek chubs and you have a good chance of getting some. If I remember right the biggest one I have ever caught was around 3 1/2 inches and from what I read they are typically around 2 inches. So I would just use a small ice fishing jig and a worm. Just like when fishing for shinners and chubs.
