newbie to the area, lookin for some advice

7 posts in this topic

I just moved here as my fiance' is attending DMU for a year of grad school. I am originally from central MN, so fishing is a pasttime of mine I am not going to pass up for a year! Just looking for some info regarding techniques and locations to get me started here. don't worry, i typically fish sportfish, so catch and release is something I practice regularly. I won't clean out your secret spot, just looking for a place to spend some time. maybe i can even fish with ya if ya don't mind! need a partner? anyone have any advice? thanx

Maybe even catfish, as I have never fished for them. Typically, I fish for pike and bass

I actually know a few people in that area in the medical field that are dying for people to go with them. If you need to get ahold of someone let me know. I don't think there are any secret spots the river has decent catfishing, and you can catch big carp if your willing in saylorville.

Red Rock Lake by Pella Municipal Airport. Fish by the dam, you'll catch Stripers, Flat Heads, Channels, white Bass, crappies, and more all day.
