Where to Fish in Winona


Recommended Posts

Father inlaw just picked up fishing and doesn't know where to fish at? I live in the cities and have no idea where to go. also don't know where a public boat landing is. Looking for some help as to where to fish.

thanks in advance for any info.

If he wants to fish the river itself and doesn't have a boat, there is a float available on the Wisconsin side of the river just up from Winona. There is the public water at Lake Winona and the lake near the airport is always an option. I know of people who fish right on the water front...or did. I know that there are several bait shops in town there and they can always direct the beginner to fair fishing.

the guys on fifth street really do kno there stuff, besides winona and the river there is also the spillway on prarie island as well as mcnalays boat launch, if he is intersted in any trout fishing he should get a trout book and look up the streams around the area there are alot of opportunities as far as that goes. i have a few secret spots maybe sometime i can take the guy out and show him around just dont want the whole world to know where they are

I lived in Winona for seven years, and picked up a lot of good shore-fishing spots since I didn't have a boat. Now that I have a boat, I don't mind giving some of them up. grin.gif The spot right under the Interstate Bridge on the south side of Latsch Island can be very good for walleye, especially when the water levels are just a little high in the summer. Crawlers on slip-sinker rigs will produce all kinds of fish. The beach right downstream from the boat launch above the Interstate bridge on the Wisconsin side is good when the water is low.

The current break on the beach right below the Wisconsin side of the Wagon Bridge is also a good summer spot for walleye and other fish, but it is best to get there early in the morning before the partiers get there, or while they are still sleeping it off on the beach. grin.gif Crawlers or leeches on slip-sinker rigs work well here too. It is also a better spot when water levels are low.

Yes, the main bridge that goes from Winona to Wisconsin and Highway 35 is locally known as the "interstate bridge" because it does go from one state to another, although no Interstate Highway is involved. grin.gif The Wagon Bridge is the small bridge, now re-opened to foot traffic I believe, that connects Latsch Island to the Wisconsin shore.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
