Echo Trail Lakes??

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on what lakes to checkout for walleyes, trout, and big pike that are located on the echo trail. I am planning on doing a trip this fall and just hitting as many lakes as I can that have portages into them from the trail. I would like to explore some lakes that hold bigger walleyes, big pike, and some trout. Thanks for any help!

When will you be taking your trip??

If you call my shop, (218-365-4744) before 10 am daily, I can give you some names of lakes.

Too much to post on the forum.

I will most likely be taking my trip sometime in late september or early october. Past mid october, I will be living in my treestand chasing the swamp bucks! I will give a call sometime in the morning to your shop. Thanks. Any other suggestions from others who have had good luck on some of those walk-in lakes off of the trail??

Trout is not necessary, but I would like to be on a body of water known for producing some bigger walleyes and pike. I would like to try for some lakers if possible though. I will be trying Burtside sometime this fall, but little out of the way lakes with bonus trout fisheries are always fun to try.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
