Fishing North of Stillwater

Recommended Posts

I've never fished on a river before. How's the walley fishing between St. Crox Falls and Stillwater in the Spring/Summer/Fall? Where's the best place to try?

Thanks!

Many anglers fish that stretch all open water season and do well. Other anglers complain about short walleyes (less than 15"s). I know I like it in Spring. Though I have never put much into the Fall bite up north. In terms of where to, much of it is the same, but in general areas with a significant amount of deep water will hold more fish on the structure (breaks) near the deepwater. The area is dominated by sand, so note areas where you find rock.

Keep catchin'

I fish up in osceola in the fall.I bow hunt just south and hunt the am and fish the afternoon.We usually just cast from shore in the log jams.Husky jerk or big jointed raps work good most the time.I the fall up there the bigger the bait the better.Usually just catch northers and have cought a few eyes but not one under 15 inches.Most the fish we catch are in 1-3 fow tucked into the structure.Its a blast!! Last year got a 35 in northern in a foot of water.He came out from under a mess of leaves that were floating on the surface and when the hit they hit hard.Its something else in shallow water like that.

Hey turk why is it,that the 14s alway seem to stay up north? There's gotta be food for the bigger one's isn't there. I do the mojority of my fishing from the Marine to stillwater and i do catch some nice walleyes in the spring but after july you might as well go south.

When you fish the river to you typically troll crank baits or lindy rigs?

      Real men can wear pink! Lol

      Yeah, Chris. I was hoping to get some color. Unfortunately, bright pink was not the color I had in mind.

      Went to the chain on the boat did not get to far. No cats had a good time felt good to hear the Yamaha purr. It's sure moving the water that is.

      Exactly, a 5fish limit would do wonders.

      Thanks to all for sharing.  I also hadn't heard of this before. Regarding the cheeks, what size does the walleye need to be to make them worthwhile?  I never keep any walleyes over 20".

      There were trucks out on Isle Bay yesterday, and ALLOT of snow remains on the main lake. I think significant open water for the opener is a long shot at best.

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.
