Pierz- fish lake

11 posts in this topic

I'm heading out to Pierz this upcoming weekend and not sure if I am going to bring the boat. Anyone fish this lake at all? Is it worth fishing? I'm mainly a C&R bass guy so I guess curious if any bass in there?

Thanks for the help

I don't think so. Wrong area.

Is it the one north of Rice Lake, a real small private lake?

I have wanted to fish there, but never found a place to access it. frown.gif

Icehawk, correct me of I am wrong!

I also believe he is talking about the one near Rice lake. Skeets you are right. Definately a private lake and you have to know someone to gain access to it!

fished it this weekend, it is east of pierz on 27, about 2-3 miles from 25. there is a public access. real small but a few nice structure points and strong dropoffs at weedlines. caught some decent bass, 2 at 16 " and the rest a little smaller. few little pike as well.

Man you guys have bad sense of direction its southwest of Genola or Pierz by a few miles. Use to fish it with my grandpa and dada alot when I was a kid, use to be a good sunfish lake especially for a kid but I heard the DNR netted out alot of the sunfish or they were just fished out. Anyways haven't been there since but had some good memories with my mentors there!

Bluegill is the winner!

The lake is mostly west and a little south of Pierz/Genola and it has a public landing.

I havent fished it for about 15 years but we used to get crappies at the bridge by the landing, in the spring. We also used to catch some nice sized bass in the summer fishing the drop offs with a jig and pig.

I guess the lake I was referring to is called "Pirz" Lake.

IT is near Roscoe in Stearns county.

My Grandpa fished Pierz Fish Lake darn near every day. He used to do very well for panfish and bass, and in the winter he'd set up a spear house. I don't know how old he was when he speared it, but he once speared a 32# northern out of there. They had the picture hanging in their house but the mounting had long since deteriorated. I would guess he was in his 40's or 50's when he got it. That would have been 50+ years ago.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
