Just wondering if anyone is fishing the lake. Haven't seen many reports lately. Thinking about going this weekend.

I went by the lake twice yesterday and I didn't see anybody out there. Just driving on Hwy.61.

Lets hope the levels start dropping.

All Most Fishing

Hi Was just wondering if walleyes might be active this next week up by Redwing?

All Most....

Welcome to FishingMinnesota.com! Enjoy!

The river is still running quite high and the water temps are still in the 50's for the most part. While the high water will deal you some poor visibility and maybe some debris, the water temps will likely hold the fish back in the lake yet, so I'd say do Pepin instead.As soon as we get rid of this mess in the river the fish will again be starting to show up at the dam, but keep in mind it is still real early. The best fall fishing will begin about mid November if you are doing the dam at Red Wing or at Alma. Pepin itself will produce until ice-up.

Again, welcome to FishingMinnesota.com!

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
