Hows the fishing been?

My family will be down there this weekend for our 2nd anual camping/biking/fishing trip. We are staying in the little town of Whalen not far from Lansboro. We didn't have much luck catching fish last year but had a good time none the less. Does anyone have any advice on catching fish in this area? I usually fish lakes so any pointers on river fishing would be helpful. grin.gif

Thanks in advance,

Adam

Any sort of plastic with a twister tail worked slowly in deeper holes and runs. Faster moving water....think trout.

Mixed bag of fish down there.

Good luck!

Rapalas, twister tails, spinners and worms.

Drift a three to four inch green/brown tube through deeper runs and pools for some great smallmouth action!

I am heading down there this weekend, just wondering if anyone has been out lately on the root, and what they think is working for this weekend?

Thanks!

Water is muddy with the rains we've gotten this week. Fishing has been tough.

We have had even more rain since that last post. I imagine the root will be unfishable. Your best bet would be to hit some of the small spring creeks near there. There's a chance south branch creek (also called canfield on some maps) may be clear enough to fish in the park. Otherwise just east of Lanesboro, Gribben and Diamond have a decent chance of being fishable as long as we don't get anymore rain.

Got a couple smallies, but didn't check this thread before I left. Probably should have left the gear at home. It was pretty muddy. I'm glad I didn't pony up for a canoe rental...might have been a huge waste of money. I'll be back in the fall for some browns.

If there is no more rain this week, do you think the Root may clear up by this week-end? At least enough to be somewhat fishable?

It should be great by the weekend. The north branch of looked pretty good on Saturday, whatever one flows thruogh Lanesboro. The south. Whatever.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
