FARIBAULT AREA
There’s a midday crappie bite on Roberds Lake in 20 feet and Hunts Lake in 20 to 24 feet. Look to Cedar Lake for panfish and northern pike in 15 to 20 feet or 28 to 32 feet. On Cannon Lake, perch remain active in 10 to 12 feet and Lake Mazaska is producing crappies in 12 to 15 feet.

RED WING AREA
Fishing pressure has been light since the cold weather returned and boat fishing on  the Mississippi River has come to an end. The backwater areas are producing some northern pike on tip-ups and sucker minnows as well as some panfish, but it’s been tough to get a handle on the bite due to a lack of fishermen heading out.

ROCHESTER AREA
Lake Zumbro is giving up a few walleyes and sunfish in 15 to 20 feet, while Chesterwoods Pond and Willow Creek Reservoir are producing crappies and sunfish over 16 to 20 feet. Look for rainbow trout just below the ice over 6 to 8 feet on Foster-Arend Pond.

WINONA AREA
The back sloughs and backwater areas such as Long Lake, Mud Lake, Round Lake and Weaver Bottoms off the Mississippi River are producing panfish and northern pike. With the cold weather, ice conditions have improved enough that walleye fishing should start below the dams by this weekend.
