DOES ANYONE FISH THE RACOON RIVER!!!!! NOone has been reply to my other post :cursing:
where is that river at lil? is that up by muscatine? Im from Burlington
Raccoon ends in Des Moines. Flows from the Northwest. Near Van Meter the Middle and North Raccoons come together. The river has good flathead and channel populations. The previous state record Channel 38# came from the Middle Raccoon Near Redfield. I know that a 46# flathead was caught north of Adel on the North Raccoon this summer. Of course as is the case in most of Iowa, the river runs thru Private property. One must ask permission to access it. I've enjoyed very good success on the "coon"
i grew up on the raccoon river but i live in southern cali now. the last time i fished the coon was a year ago. i have seen a 67 lb flathead pulled off a throw line by my best friend. i have only fished the coon in greene county around jefferson Ia. use live bullheads, hook them behind the dorsal fin use a three way swivil with about 6 ounce weight. cast in the deep holes and wait
I fish the racoon and des moines rivers. I am fishing for big flathead but I have not caught one yet. Hopefully soon I will.
