Falling water

Recommended Posts

Turk

I'm thinking with the river falling as fast as it is that, the opener may be a bit off? Hard to say, but I'd love the river to stay high right where it is for the opener. I like the first two weeks of fishing smack dab in the spawning areas but with the water falling fast, they might not be in the normal community holes.

But that's part of the fun! Finding them.

Keep Catchin'

Right now we are getting close to last years water level.I would say,unless we get some serious rain we will see some low flow by opener.I havent been out yet but,Ive been told water temps from Bayport-north to the highbridge range from 52 to 45.The eyes are in spawn right now so they should be putting on a good feed at opener.Turks right,those usual spots will still have some fish there but there are gonna be other areas that will produce some nice catches.I cant wait to get out there,I actually prefer to fish the odd spots on opener but its fun to motor through the channels and see the fish eaten grins on everyones face.

Hi Turk, I plan on fishing the St Croix on opener. I hear of people fishing the area around the rail bridge, is this a good place to start or will the current play a major role? Thanks for the updates

If you mean the swing bridge near Hudson, Yes that's a good place to start. Early in the year before the walleye chase the shad in the open water, I believe the current is a major factor in finding fish.

      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.

      Congrats jfitz! I was in boat 85 in the big tiller Lund right behind you guys leaving the harbor. Our nice fish we had going completely disappeared on us.

      I hope you and your dad don’t mind passing along the story of your weekend. It’s a great story and defies conventional wisdom. Congratulations! The best fishermen have skill, intuition, and a little luck on their side.

      Welcome to to Fishing Minnesota, TheEyesofanAngler. My favorite lake for bass in our area is definitely Clearwater. It takes a bit to learn the lake, but the rewards are more than worth it.  Littlerock also holds some very nice Largemouth with a few bonus smallies mixed in... I know you said lakes and ponds, but the Mississippi here in town and  the sections above the Sartell and Blanchard dams all are exelent smallmouth fisheries.

      Was it a G.Loomis Conquest Mag Bass rod with a Shimano® Calcutta Conquest reel on it?  That would be mine!

      I have snorkeled on head o lakes (off our beach) and it is usually ok.   Not Hawaii clear but 5 to 10 feet visibility....  OK, maybe 10 is a stretch, but pretty good.
