I fished Salem Creek for the first time in early June. Went with a friend who has some land in that area. I caught Creek Chubs at will with a tiny straight line spinner but nary a Small Mouth. Going to go back soon.
Anyone had any experience with that stream?
It looks like it should contain SMB.

I fished Salem Creek once with similar results. All creek cubs and one rock bass.

With all the stone and some decent holes, I agree - it looks like good smallie water. Maybe it's just two shallow for good migration.

I was wondering where Salem Creek is. I wouldn't mind a few chubs or some rock bass. A fish is a fish and teaching a kid to fish, even on chubs, is for me!

Thanks

Salem Creek is south of Salem Corners. I accessed it through private land so can't tell you where to access it. As I recall it runs northerly into a branch of the Zumbro

Thanks for the info. I know the creek you are talking about. I'll have to find some place to fish it.

ssendek,
Have you tried the zumbro in and out of Silver lake in Rochester? A lot of fish to catch and a great place to take a kid fishing.

I'm curious to know how people have done on the ZUmbro in Rochester and Silver Lake!!??
There was a lot of interest not too long ago. Just revisiting the notion!!!
Keep the rods bendin'!!! JIm W

For old times sake I fished a little bitty hole a little ways down from the Silver Lake dam about one month ago and caught fish basically at will: 4-5 inch bullheads!
Then, in midst of the bullheads a thick little Large Mouth took my crawler.
Years ago when we had such low water I floated the stretch of river below dam out to 37th street and found a good hole around a bend not too far below the dam (within 1/4 mile) and could count on action every evening with SMG, catfish, carp and others but these structures change and subsequent years I could not relocate. I need to float or wade it again and relocate the good spots.

      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!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
