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.
   
  Which fish do you
want to catch?
   
  When anglers are asked about the fish they prefer to catch, it becomes clear that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
   
  For an enjoyable family experience, panfish (including yellow perch, crappies, bluegills, and rock bass) offer fast action with a minimum investment in gear. Crappies and bluegills are among the most cooperative of these smaller fish.
   
  Typically, walleye and sauger are highly sought due to their elusive nature and their fine performance in regard to table fare (they taste great!).
   
  Others prefer the hard-fighting smallmouth bass, which bite aggressively, then treat the angler to strong runs and explosive jumps after the hook is set.
   
  Some anglers seek the fish at the top of the food chain... toothy critters like northern pike or the muskellunge.
   
  The grittiest fishermen want to catch a fish that requires them to “put their back into it”. These hearty souls love to do battle with a hefty flathead catfish or lake sturgeon, which can grow to more then fifty pounds in these waters.
   
  These are the most commonly encountered species on the St. Croix River. Please visit the National Park Service website for a complete list of fish species.
