September fishing in Red Cedar River

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I'll be camping in Irvington in mid-September, and I'm wondering if iI should pack the fishing pole and take time out from my bike trip on the Red Cedar Trail to check out the Red Cedar River. I've heard its a bass river, but I'm not sure if they'd be biting in September and if so, what they'd be biting on.

Any advice / comments are welcome. Just getting back into fishing after a long hiatus, so any help is appreciated.

thanks, glen

Its well worth fishing, not just smallies but walleyes, perch, northerns, catfish, etc. A canoe is ideal but I'd just keep an eye open while biking - look for river bends with deeper pools, timber, small islands with current shoots, pretty much any 'fishy' looking spots.

A silver blade/white tail mepps or blue fox inline is tough to beat for covering water. Rapalas, topwater poppers, and tubes/twisters on jigs also produce. If you have room, pack some crawlers as well.

Beautiful stretch of river, enjoy and good luck.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
