Steiger

Hi Folks- I have a co-worker who works w/ juveniles who is looking for a decent shore spot for 4-6 young kids to shore fish. Wondering if Steiger-Parley-Wasserman have a public fishing pier or a decent spot from shore to fish? They will be going out tomorrow early (7/25)- so asap response would be much appreciated.. Thanks! 8-Ball.

Not asking for honey holes or GPS waypoints here, just if there are shore fishing spots. Anybody...

I believe panfish are possible off the dock at Steiger. Also consider two piers on Lake Minnewashta in Chanhassen.

One pier is in the park. Panfish/bass/pike would be possible. The second pier is in the southwest corner of the main bay; a small park area. Same species would be possible there. Both areas have some space near the piers for wading, too.

DB- Is the dock at Steiger a public pier or just a public access dock for launching?

Unless things have changed there is no dock for launching. The pier is designed for fishing and is a little bit away from the launch area.

Bobber/suckerminnow will give you a shot at pike and bass and they can get pretty big in this lake although all gamefish are still catch n release.

There is a fishing pier and a dock for launching at Steiger. My main concern at Steiger would be that the pier is often crowded so if you come at the wrong time you will have no place to fish.

Thanks for the info guys-going to steer my buddy and his clients out there hopefully tomorrow. Would it be crowded out there by, say, 9 a.m.?

It shoudn't be, the only thing is one family can almost take over the pier.

BB and Doon- Thanks for the info-bud went out to Steiger w/ his clients and they had a ball. Some pannies, couple nice bass and some slimers mixed in for fun. He said the looks on the kids faces and how excited they were was priceless. They plan to go again soon! P.S. All fish released, of course..

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
