knucklehead,
It all depends on what you would like to catch. Do not hesitate to try the ZUmbro river! Below the Oronoco dam(as previously mentioned) can be a wonderful(lots of snags etc.) place to get the kids on some big fish. Below the Dam at Econo Foods and anywhere downstream to the Silver lake dam has fish! Willow Creek Res. has a lot of panfish and bass as well. Keep the rods bendin'!!!

What kind of lures/bait work good on the Zumbro?

flyguy,

Since the Zumbro flows a tad dirty remember to incorporate highly visible presentations. FOr the bass, I would recommend a lot of the similar tactics used on other streams and rivers. SPinner baits(buy the cheap ones from Northland just in case you end up snagging off a bunch), spinners like meps and rooster tails and of course the good old Rapala(Original floating). Husky jerks might work for you as well!!
DOn't forget live bait either. Rig a slip bobber with a leech or crawler and pitch into cover and near rip-rap. Texas rigged(and weedless) plastics could be deadly too!
The Zumbro gives an angler the opportunity to be creative with their presentations. You might surprise yourself and the fish as well. They haven't seen too many raps/meps or plastics come their way! Let me know how you do!! Keep the rods bendin'!!! Jim W

I have found very good success with a 6" Zoom Lizard(texas rigged). I usually use the junebug color. And i usually do that in the mornings or near dusk. In the afternoon i tend to switch over to a slip bobber and worm or leech(other than bass a worm or leech can also pick up on the sunnies,crappies,cats,and the great sheephead!!) I was just on the Zumbro here on the 4th and was back in a shallow bay and we saw 2 catfish that had to be at least over 10lbs each just casually swimming around along the top of the water. I tossed a slip bobber and worm at him and he actually came up and swirled at the bobber. But you can catch almost any kind of fish in there with a worm and bobber. And the flu-flus have been just AWSOME(and i mean awsome) on the northerns in there. I caught and released 6 or so and the largest was over 25".

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
