Opener - Redwood Falls Area

Recommended Posts

RignJig

Anyone out there fishing the Redwood Falls area on the opener? I may go try a few inlets, probably from shore. We had good fishing last year, many willing 'eyes to be had. Hopefully we can find them again this year in between rain showers.

i Will be fishing close to redwood and the water level is good it is at a normal level for the spring time i was out on wed. in the boat lots of fishable spots and lots of good looking spots the river should start to drop in a couple of weeks and it will drop 5 to 7 feet to be around normal summer levels

only fished for a couple hours sat afternoon and I got one walleye that was just under 18". Nice health fish....haven't heard much from anyone else. I fished between Redwood and Delhi in a creek mouth.

Good Luck!

there is a couple spots but most are not public. I guess I always fish from the boat so I really haven't paid much attention, sorry. There is some areas that are public tho. There is the Renville Co. Parks. One near Delhi, a couple between Fairfax and Franklin and of course the public accesses. Come down and take a drive along the river bottom road and check them out. You may be surprised on how many spots there is.

Good Luck!

I used to fish that stretch of river you are talking about. My best up there is at 31#. When I do fish the river for cats, and I have not been since last year, I fish downstream from morton. I like that stretch and have had a couple hogs on that I never got in the boat. I need to find a place to get some bullheads that will actually bite when I want them to. Bait is always my biggest problem.

Good Luck!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
