Good evening to all those reading this forum.
So here is my story, I moved here the other year from Minnesota and love to fish.
What I am looking for is some starter information on fishing Chatfield, or the nearby ponds/lakes, since I live near the reservoir. Any information is appreciated from anyone taking a minute or two to respond. If you don't want to post it, feel free to send a pm.
Let's be clear here, I don't want anyone's secret spot or any of that junk, I will find my own secret locations by myself. I just would like some information on a starting point or general location, types of lures that I should go purchase (its going to be an expensive weekend in the sporting goods department, ha), etc.
Some information for me is that I would be a shore fisherman for now (hopefully a boat in the near future
), and I would be targeting whatever really wants to bite, but trying to catch some walleyes for the frying pan, nummy.
So far the only thing I really know is that some folks fish near the dam, and now that it is fall the fish should be starting to put on the feed bag.
Overall, any information is really appreciated just to get me started. Thanks a bunch and I will post some of my fishing reports, pending I catch anything, haha.
Good luck and tight lines.
p.s. Any information on special regulations or places to stay out of would also be appreciated, since who really wants to deal with the authorities.
