    Default Mississippi by St. Cloud

    I just started fly fishing this summer and the couple times I have gone the best I've done was seen a bass swim past me... I am not giving up on the Rum River yet (because its in my back yard), but I currently am commuting to SCSU and I have heard that the fishing is pretty good below the St.Cloud dam on the Mississippi river. Any one have any good tips or ideas for fly fishing on the shore of the Mississippi (or in the Rum for that matter)? I will be fishing mainly for smallies and bream, but I've heard there are some catfish in that area. I am bound and determined to catch a fish on the fly if it kills me.
    Thanks Cabot,

    Throwing crayfish on a sinking line, clousers or any aggravators would work. If you have a boat hit every rocky bank through St Cloud from campus all the way up as far as you can. I've had great luck on the western bank right under the Hwy 23 bridge. Below the dam is great too. Monticello in the park by the hospital is awesome in the mornings and evenings. Fish every stump you can on the Rum as well as ledges and rock walls. just up from the Anoka dam is a good spot. A good crayfish pattern would work well in both rivers.
