I made my first trip down to the river last night. The word for the night was SLOOOOOW.

There were 11 or 12 people down there all fishing different methods and in the 2 hours I was there the only fish we saw was a large sucker that was snagged.

I did snag 2 fish myself by they both got off before getting to shore.

Other then that I can confirm one solid bite and that's about it.

I'll give it a few days and I'll see if I can find some time to try again. It might be just a little early yet, at least that's what I am hoping. Some rain would probably help the situation out as well.

I'll write a new blog post in the next couple days with more details on what baits I'm using and how I'm fishing them. Hopefully I'll have some success stories to share as well.

Thanks for the report nofish, I always like to fish that spot, but haven't made it down there yet this year. Can you get down to the shore on the Mpls side? or is that blocked off for the reconstruction?

You can still get down there. I was on the MPLS side last night. You can take the stairs near the old incinerator off of South Minnehaha Park Drive. There are two spots you can park on the street or there are the two permit lots right there.

The stairs are in pretty bad shape as always but now there is also alot of construction debris/dust which makes them a little slippery so just watch your step.

It looks like other spots must be accessible as well since there were a number of people walking the area but i didn't go look to see which other spots are open.

Good to hear you got out there.. Was the water really high yet?

I would like to fish it a time or two this spring. Last year I got a few nice white bass.

The water is still fairly high. It should be fishable for awhile yet. The white bass always seemed to like the current coming out of the creek which is nonexistent this year with the construction so I'm not sure what we will find here this year.
