Fishing the Mississippi River near St. Cloud

You know the beauty of it is,
as I mentioned, we’re right here in town, and one of the things
is that… you couldn’t tell that,
by where we’re sitting right now. The channels are mixed in
amongst the area, and we’ve got a little bit higher
than normal flows for right now, but not too far off, and it’s a beautiful river… it’s got real great
scenic quality. Everything here
is naturally reproducing, there’s no stocking
that needs to take place, and doesn’t take place. Naturally reproducing
smallmouth bass, walleye, northern pike, obviously there’s some
muskellunge in the area. They’re lower abundance for sure, but channel catfish are
relatively abundant as far as another
game fish species goes. [sound of rapids] The Mississippi is definitely… it’s a beautiful area and it is
right close to home, and I think it’s about time
we realize that it’s… it’s right here
in our backyard. [♪♪]
