Top 10 Reasons to Fish the St. Croix River
  St. Croix River Fishing Good fishing... beautiful scenery... historic river towns. We’ll hook you up.
The Upper St. Croix River
The upper St. Croix River is known as one of the finest smallmouth bass fisheries in the nation. Since the river is federally protected from development, it retains a wilderness character. As you glide your canoe over sandy bottoms and past heavily wooded shoreline, you will observe few signs of human presence.
The Lower St. Croix River
South of St. Croix Falls, WI the St. Croix River eventually widens and the current slows. Here you will find prime habitat for the largest fish in the river, including sturgeon and flathead catfish. Walleye fishing is the most popular among local anglers, with smallmouth bass also receiving a significant amount of attention. Here you will find increased fishing pressure, along with heavy recreational boating during the warmest days of summer. However, if you steer clear of the cruisers, you can find great fishing action. Multi-species outings are common, including crappie, bluegill, sauger, white bass, muskellunge, buffalo, yellow perch, and of course, freshwater drum (sheephead).
