Just looking for a little info on Orwell dam area. Anyone fished there recently, any results good bad or otherwise?? I plan on stopping by Orwell over the weekend for a few casts. I will post a report if I do.

Fished the Red about 4-5 times this spring for walleyes mostly by the Oxbow dam and it was S-L-O-W...... My guess is quick warm-up then cool down then rain. Spring weather not much you can do. Talked to the CO on the MN side and he said the dams in the FM area had been much better this spring than the Oxbow dam. He also commented that he thought the walleye fishing in the Oxbow area has slipped a little in the last few years. Any comments from you river rat experts? Thanks guys.

Just a quick report from Orwell. Fished the dam on Sunday night from 6:30pm - 8:00pm. There was a big crowd down at the dam. Talked to a few people said the fishing was slow for walleyes, however one guy I talked to said opening weekend they had pretty good success on the walleyes. Myself not much to report a sucker, one walleye, and a couple smallies, everything was C&R for me. Saw smallies jumping all over the place. LOts of people out having a great time and it's a great time to enjoy the dam before the mosquitoes eat you alive.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Pike very active with 6-12 feet running crank baits ... also Bass !!   Been using various crank runners some off deeper weed lines 12-15 feet.    Fun trolling and having to stop because the rod was smacked hard 😃     Cret

      Been awhile since I posted, busy summer but finally got the kayak back out on the Mississippi to chase after them fall smallies. The bite was really good and managed a new personal best at 21"! Bait of choice is my wacky worm, they never can resist! I'll be chasing these till ice is on the lakes. Best fishing is right around the corner, goodluck everyone!    Video:  https://youtu.be/PJOZITB0ol0
