Hey Man, I just started fishing this area a few years ago. All good advise from the other replies. Use the following website to figure out the depth you want to fish.

http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/areas/fisheries/montrose/miss_river_depth_maps.html

You can also use this if you want to see what the current is like. The St.Paul link has water temp.

I typically spend most my time shore fishing below the CR dam and in a boat above.

One thing I would like to add is don't get too close to the 169 bridge pillars. There's a metal gate in front of them on the north side that could do some damage.

Enjoyable night last night on the river from champlin on up including swing up the rum. I more pleasure boasted than wet lines. So close to home I may become a river rat

Got into an interesting discussion with a guy at the launch yesterday who claims that smallies are all catch and release from anoka north..has anyone else heard this? I checked online and looks like spec regs but farther north..nothing from elk river south

I've always thought it was st cloud dam (or Hwy 25 bridge in Clearwater) to 101 bridge that's catch and release.

Smallies were hitting this morning in the rum bite stopped about 10 or so for us. Pretty small though.
Are there spots to hit North of 169? Pretty navigable?

You can get a ways up but have to be very careful, wouldn't go blasting up unless you know exactly where you are.

Might want to reference the ref book:
http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/fishing_regs.pdf#view=fit&pagemode=bookmarks

Pg. 50

MISSISSIPPI RIVER (Sherburne, Stearns and Wright counties) smallmouth bass: all from 12-20" must be immediately released from the confluence of the Crow River upstream to the St. Cloud Dam, including tributaries to the posted boundaries. Possession limit is three, with one over 20".
