Has anyone been out here lately? If so, is anyone catching any crappies or sunnies? Would it be worth a paddle out there this weekend or should I just head to Fosters?

I am headed home from college and looking to get in a little fishing before I start work in two weeks and don't want to get in the mess that is opening walleye fishing in the Fairbault region.

Any suggestions? Maybe I should headout to one of the trout streams I used to call home, or maybe to the backwaters of the Miss. Hmmmmmmm...too many options. What should a guy do?

Reports from the area would be appreciated.

P.S. Can anyone help me post a new avatar I took on a digital camera and now have on my computer? I caught a real nice crappie (15.5"-measured not estimated)up in Alex. on Monday and would like to post the pic of Me and it as my Avatar.

Knute....Not much has been going around about Chesterwoods. The Zumbro may offer some relief and can be fished from shore, canoe or whatever. Foster has cooled off some, but they still get some trout.

The reservoir action, if you are looking for it, might best be found at the CountryClub pits, especially the one right behind the Mayo parking facility. I'd look for crappie and sunfish relating to the shorelines by now and if the weather warms at all, they'd be a good target from shore.

I am fairly familiar with the pit area, but where is the easiest and legal spot to get on?

If I remember correctly, I think there is a small grass/rocky "drainage" that runs alongside the parking lot back to the pit behide the Mayo lot you spoke of. Is it legal to enter there (aka public right of way), if not, any other places to enter without knowing someone who lives on the pit (Are there houses on that pit now?)?

Thanks for the quick response Tom!

Knute....you are right about the area for access as you described it. When you park, be sure to park away from the entrance to the Mayo facility, yet on on the street servicing the housing area and try to stay off grass areas if there are any. Or you could try stopping by the new fire dept and ask if you can hide your car in the lot behing the station for a while.....word has it that those guys are great.
