Walleye/ Sauger fishing on Mississippi near St. Louis

Recommended Posts

I am fairly new to the area and would like to do some Walleye and Sauger fishing on the Mississippi. I live near L&D 25. I hear that there is some good fishing on the river near here. What times of year are generally best? Which dams should I fish below? 23, 24, 25, others? Any tips or information about which baitshops that are helpful? I plan on living here for years and need to get started but would like just a little help about where to start. Don't want to fish for years and then find out I am not in the right area.

I have fished Pool 4 in Minnesota and seen the mass of boats. Is there anywhere that is similar to that on the weekends?

Thanks for any tips!

I have never done it, but I've talked to a few people that do it. They go below Clarksville, usually in Feb. They use jigs w/minnows. I would like to try it sometime...but the guys I fish with are chickens when it comes to the Mighty Miss!

Thanks for the post. That is where I thought they were fishing for them. Hopefully I can talk my buddies into going out there one of these weekends. I've heard you just have to be careful of the ice coming down.

Did you get to go out for the walleye anymore? I never did try it! One of these winters I will make it out on the Old Miss!

Didn't make it back out there. Between work, weather and the water conditions we couldn't find a good time.

I live in the STL area. I fish below the Winfield dam in January and February....depending on conditions. Decent fishing, but nowhere near where I grew up in NE Minnesota.

Welcome! Don't be afraid to tell us more about yourself! Where do you like to fish other than on the Mighty Miss. Do you ever go to any of the lakes? Like I said WELCOME!

    • does it really matter? i mean its gonna be a 4-0/ 4-1 sweep by the yanks come playoff time. I know I know Im a terrible person
    • haven't had cable for 3+ years now if i can get my internet bill back down it will be great thinking of going back to frontier half the cost run netflix and antenna in the attic. most of the time i just check the news on the phone. other then that its disney movies. we do get some chatter since the metal roof went on but no big deal
    • can you post a pic of that feeder please? thx
    • Been hearing 2 pileated woodpeckers in the trees for a few days. Was hoping there was a chick around. It just flew in and I got a quick shot. Male chick. First time I have captured one.
    • What do you know 2 games in a row for Sano. Cron too, he's been the steadiest with the bat lately IMO. Thought I seen something about them getting a pitcher that the Angels let go. I'd love to see them pick up another lefty for the bullpen as well.
    • A lot of it depends on the bandwidth that you are paying for. They will limit your pipe. Best bet is to hook up a computer directly to you router and see what you get on your speed test. The mesh systems are  awesome for both range and through put, but any wireless router is only going to deliver on the bandwidth that your isp provides. If you find that your hard wire computer is a lot faster, the first step is to update the firmware on your wireless router and go from there. 
    • I finally put out the blackbird proof suet feeder. The juvenile redwing blackbirds have recently moved in and have been gorging on the nutty butter. Never had any grackles so far, hence the reason I’ve waited until now to swap feeders. They haven’t been hitting the sunflower chips much, so I’ll hold off on swapping those feeders for now.
