Forest Lake / Chisago City Area Shore Fishing

Recommended Posts

Down to Earth

I'm coming up this weekend to race the Chisago Lakes Triathlon on Sunday and wouldn't mind getting some fishing in Saturday late afternoon/evening. Any good shore fishing possibilities available in the area? Not looking for any particular species, but just a chance to relax a bit the evening before the race.

Thanks.

Andy

There are nice public peirs to fish off on South Lindstrom lake@ Park Point behind the Dinner Bell in Lindstrom. Another on Chisago Lake @ Paridise Park in Chisago city kinda east behind Faimly Dollar store area. Another in Center City just off hwy 8 by the channel under 8 across from the bank or mall on North Center lake.

Good Luck,

Harp

From what I have seen its going to be tough shore fishing in some of the usual spots. With the water levels WAY down and the weeds thicker than crap it makes it tough to shore fish.

Yes the public peirs will be hard to fish and slow. best bet is to (if you do not mind walking in the water) Is to work the shore behind lakeside school on little Green. You can park at the school when school is out walk behind school and wade the shore and hit the docks. There is a dock at lindberg landing on Chisago chanel also that can be good at times. But if you are just looking to soak a sucker the peir at the beach (same place as the race) can be fun. I do alot of shore fishing and wading the shore hitting docks and pads for bass is a good option this time of year. And you can stop a Frankies for more info they are always good to me grin.gif Weightless worms under docks seems to be working and top water baits are starting to get action. Hopeyou have a good time. See you at the race (I will be one of the people handing you a water on the bike trail grin.gif)

Shorefisher,

Thanks for the tips. Wouldn't mind wading a bit to fish at all. I'll just throw the rod in and an arsenal of plastics and top water and see what I come up with. Also, Thanks for volunteering out on the race course. Looks like it will be a bit warm this weekend, so I'm sure I'll be loading up on fluids during the race. This will be my first time up in the area, so I'm looking forward to it.

Good luck with the race and the fishing. I'm sure you will do fine with both.

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      It’s still a blast to fish

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....
