Places to fish..........

Ok here is the deal...all next week i have my afternoons off after 2:30 and im looking to do a lot of fishing. Problem is the big Miss and most of the rivers and creeks i was going to fish will most likely be chocolate milk and unfishable. I need some ideas on where i can fish. So far about all i have come up with is hope Foster Arends' ice gives away enough so i can do some casting with shad raps for trout. Any other ideas? I can only do so much shed hunting for antlers next week...man i need to do some fishing!!

james_walleye,

This time of year can get rather frustrating! Especially if you don't have a boat! There is still hope that by next week(latter half) that you could find some streams to hit. If you get the chance one evening, get your trout map out and do some scouting. Look for streams that don't have a ton of fields along their course. Sometimes these clean out very fast.
Another option is tryting some of the backwater spill-ways along the Miss. These aren't affected by the spring waters as much as the main channel. I have had very good success on spill-ways! WHere you say? Most of the lock and dams have spill ways near the opposite shore line. Good luck and pray for some hard-core sunshine!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jim W

My advise is to think small water & deep in the valley... the top end of creeks and brooks may be your best bet. They tend to clear up quick and not get the wicked multiple run-off of larger streams. There's quite a few of these types in the Lansboro area... start with Gribbon Creek & check othes around there... even if you completely strike out with the "chocholate milk," you will surely enjoy the scenery!

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A MINNESOTA ATLAS & GAZETTEER, PICK ONE UP AND EXPLORE! IF YOU GET AROUND THE PRESTON AREA, TRY CAMP CREEK. THERE ARE SPECIAL REGS ON IT (BARBLESS SINGLE HOOK?) BUT IT WILL BE ONE OF THE FIRST TO CLEAR UP. THERE ARE SOME DANDYS IN THERE TOO.
GOOD LUCK AND LET US KNOW HOW IT WENT.

Anyone know of any crappie or bluegill holes that may be fishable?

james_walleye,

Your best bet for finding any crappie/panfish spots around SE MN would be back water spots. I haven't been down that way in a while, so I'm not sure if they have cleared of ice yet.
Keep in mind however, that once that ice leaves, them bull crappies can be found schooled up in the very shallow backwater sloughs getting ready to spawn. Keep the rods bendin'!!! Planning on Trout Day?

I dont have any plans for the weekend of trout day so chances are good i might be able to come. Are any of those backwaters where the crappies are accessable by foot or do you have to be in a boat?

Most are accessable by either boat or foot. I don't own a boat, so 99% of where I fish is by foot! A couple spots to start off are #3 lake by the pioneer spill-way. I doubt they are cleared of ice yet. The second would be West Newton down past Kellogg and the last I'll have to keep to myself for now! Jim W
