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

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
