west side of Calhoun

3 posts in this topic

Cedar Lake is my first choice for fishing in the metro because I live a block from it, but, I'm thinking of heading over to Calhoun later tonight. I often see people fishing the western side of the lake, but they're always in boats. From a shorefishing perspective, should I try out that side also and hit the milfoil?

Yes, give it a try. That side of the lake does seem to get a lot of pressure though. I have been down there at 6am, and seen half dozen or more folks working it.

Then throughout the day it picks up angler wise.

Can be worth it though, I have seen plenty of fish caught over the years.

I live just a few blocks from there, so I end up spending plenty of time there early on in the season.

Cedar is one heck of a lake.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.
