Calhoun, Lake of the Isles, Cedar and traveling between them

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if once you are on Calhoun, that you can travel thru isles to Cedar with your boat? And what about to Brownie lake?

Yes. You can reach Cedar via Isles - there's a little lagoon & a shallow channel between the two lakes. Never tried to reach Brownie, though. You should try. wink.gif

You can reach brownie from cedar, but any thing much wider than a canoe will not go through. There's a covered canal that goes under the RR tracks on the North end.

It sounds like this entire chain, including Calhoun and Harriet, is totally devoid of pike. Is this true? Also, what is the water clarity on this chain like?

There is pike in the chain. They are low in abundance but are pretty good sized. The water clarity varies from lake to lake. Calhoun has the best clarity of the chain, up to 12.5 feet. Isles has lowest clarity of a couple feet.

I have caught a pike on Calhoun recently and saw someone else get one so I know they are in there but I'm thinking the almighty musky is a little more common.

we used to catch hella pike on calhoun 4-5 years ago on the west side,when it had a dock.along with big bass nice walleyes(especially at night).me thinks there are quite a few tigers in there too wink.gif so unless it has changed i'd say there is a decent populatoin of pike you just have to be able to get to them

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
