Lake Rachel

5 posts in this topic

Hello All, has anyone fished Lake Rachel lately? We fished it years ago when the rising water was about to make the peninsula an island. we are thinking of stopping up this fall. Thanks in advance. Spit.

Spit, the peninsula is now nothing but dead trees sticking out of the water. The channel between the big, and little lake is now big enough that you can get 2 pontoons to pass with room on either side. If you haven't fished it for awhile make sure yu check out the special regs for the lake. Bass and panfish have been doing well from what I've heard, haven't been out there myself lately. norhtherns are always biting but they are the ones with special regs.

What happened to all of the cabins that were on what is now the peninsula?

The water on the lake is done rising. The pennisula that you are talking about is still a pennisula. The people on the island had to build up the road with the rising water. I haven't fished the lake since this spring. It is one of my favorites with all the structure that the rising water gave us. If you haven't been there in years be careful around the shore...even up to 100' out. There are stumps that will eat your lower unit. Last year people found some walleyes but not many from what I understand. Good luck and Let us know how you do...

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
