I would say yes, there's a good chance. Hopefully some of folks more familiar with that area can respond.

I have caught channels around Windom, Kilen Woods State Park, and at the outlet at Talcot Lake. Outside of the towns and bridges they get almost no pressure and will bite aggresively. Find a hole (5-10 ft) and a snag and you'll find some fish. Mostly small but an occasional one in the low to mid teens.
