Mouth of Minnehaha

Has anyone fished near the mouth of the Minnehaha Creek lately for cats?

Not lately for Cats.

Of course there is always a chance for Cat's down there but the problem is right now we have minimal water flow coming out of the Creek and nothing out of the sewer drain. Another Problem I have found fishing for Cats at Minnehaha is there really isn't any deep water or hole's to speak of in the area.

I guess there is a chance to pick off some Flats in the shallow area's by the Creek and Sewer Drain, if you want Channels maybe add a little weight to your setup and get the bait out into in the main channel if you can!

Good Luck!

My recent adventures down there..... Hardly any water flowing out of the creek or discharge.

I agree with Pier.

Thanks. Do you have any recommendations of other spots to fish for channels around the city?

Not much discharge from the dam? I have been meaning to give hidden falls a shot up around the first bend down from the dam. Went up there real early in the year and it was too fast and I have been meaning to give it another run.

No water at all coming over the Dam what little water that is coming down stream is coming through the Power Plant spill way.

I usually just park the boat on the Island and head up to the North end and fish as close to the Dam as possible.

If you are in a boat remember not to go past the signs you will be boating in a restricted area it's illegal to be with in 500' of the Dam while boating and they will ticket you.

Jake did get a PB Flathead the other day along with 4 other Personal Best.

Pug size Flat.. grin

Notice the Dam in the background no water at all.

Wow, having no water like that pretty much rules Hidden Falls out for me. I guess I'll keep pounding the spot I've been hitting until it gives one up bigger than the one pictured above. smile

I say a flat is a flat.

I'm sick of the low water too. I got a warning for going to close to the dam when there was no water flowing over it. That lil power plant spillway was hot though. No wonder why they don't want anyone close. Just kidding - the CO told me the horror stories about being too close to the dam.

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • 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.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
