Fished Saturday for Silvers near Franconia and Taylors Falls. Water was really high, cold and fast - which surprised me after the stable dry week we just had. I caught one little walleye - no silvers or crappies. I'll skip the crowd on opener, probably fish pool two instead. I'll get serious about fishing the St Croix after next week.

Lund 18,

There is a boat landing just north of down town Stillwater. The access is free, however you will need to show up extremely early to find a parking spot. You can also put in at Beanies just south of the 94 bridge, i think they charge $10.

Yup, I'll be heading up north of TF for wally action. There are several nice drifts north of the dam a few miles that I'll try. Last year jig and plastic shad tail worked well vertically jigging while floating w/the current.

I too was below the TF dam fishing white bass this past Saturday. I was w/a buddy in his 17' alumacraft. One fish in about two hours... not too good. However, I was undeterred and went back on Sunday. Eight fish, including a monster crappie and a couple of dink walleyes. Still wasn't outstanding, but better than nothing! I agree that the water was surprisingly high, about two feet up from the previous weekend. Why? I don't know. The good thing is that the water temp was up this past week from 41F to 54F. Pretty significant rise in temp I'd say!

Good luck this weekend.

You're probably looking for Rush Creek landing. Yup, Rush City exit, go East through town and follow the road out of the east side of Rush City. There is another road, wish I could tell you the name of it. Get on TerraServer, look up Rush City and go east to find the road. This is dirt ramp I believe so small boats only, I'm guessing. I also don't know what the water depth is like there. Somebody else'll have to speak up with more info. Best I can do. Good Luck.

I hope we do as good as last year 9 keepers many dinks with a few sheepskins and silvers mixed in to keep you baiting the hook.

Good Luck,

Ferny.

I've never taken a boat down to Prescott so I'm not sure but I just got inform that you can launch at Hastings and its free. I usually fish from shore at the park on the northwest side of the bridge.

crappie getter

Eyes 1850,

In Prescott they have envelopes you put your money in and then you rip of the tag part and put it on your dash of your truck. I beleive it is around $7-$10. I have heard you can contact the city of prescott and get a season pass. You can always put in in hastings and motor down it is free. Or there is a nice ramp at bluffs park (washington county park) just south of afton on the minnesota side. Very nice ramp in a protected bay and nice park also. $20 a year pass good for all washington county parks. Last year on the first tuesday of every month the park was free to use not sure if they are doing that again but i would imagine they would.

crappie getter,

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish. 
    • ANYFISH2
      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.
    • Wanderer
      Good job guys!
    • YellowFinRed
      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.
    • Gillraker
      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)
    • Wanderer
      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!
