How far up the MN?

8 posts in this topic

I've fished the Mississippi for catfish quite a lot and done a little in the Minnesota near the metro but I'm wondering how far upstream you can find good catfishing. Is it good all the waq to the Dakota border or is there a cut off where the catfishing is no longer worth it?

I'm confused, your title of the post asks about the "MN", but the text of the thread asks about the Mississippi..

I'm seeing it as he has fished the Miss and is wondering how far up the MN he can work and catch cats.

And Dtro's statement is a big help.

FWIW, I was in Granite Falls on work this week and there was a DNR poster asking anglers to turn in tagged flatheads. Did a bit of fishing at night with frogs I caught and struck out - not even a channel cat or a run. Killed the carp on corn though...

Good point...I'm talking about fishing on the Minnesota River. My experience is strictly on the Miss but was wondering about the MN. I'd like to do some pheasant hunting this fall and go catfishing as well out west. Just trying to see if this is logistically workable.

Goblue were you in the john boat that talked to me at skalbaken,on your way down it seemed as tho you guys were new to the area not really knowing the channel?

Those yellow posters about tagged fish havent been around for 5-6 years where did you see that one? I picked one up in a flood in the woods a while back,I caught lots of flats but never one with a tag.

Once your above GraniteFalls dams,I've never caught a flat but plenty channels,and eyes will be grouping below dams around the time phasants are open.I have heard of flats above Granite,Below Granite,I catch quite a few,However the water is higher than norm and fishing 32 hrs. straight produced only 2 cats This week! Thats REALLY POOR for me below Granite.
