Sakatah Lakes

7 posts in this topic

What do you guys know about upper and lower Sakatah? Are these lakes worth looking at to put a lake home on? Are these the types of lakes that turn pretty green during the summer? I am still in the search to find my parents a place and just taking a look at some different options.

Thanks,I am looking forward to meeting you guys at the outing on the 6th.

I know theres not alot of fishing pressure on them. Any lake home is great. Excellent investment, especially in this area, where the city folk is wanting to move away from the chaos. Instant home value...so buy while its still at a reasonable price.

You can get to Tetonka from Sakatah through the channel so it's kinda like living on both lakes.

Downside to this would be you will have to cross a county road to get to the lake. Also, with most so. mn lakes, pretty green in the summer.

Just to add to what they said; Just about the whole southside of the lake is State Park.

It will get green.

You can get to Tetonka from Sakatah.

Not alot of boat traffic.

They're not lakes I would put a home on but the fishing in the spring and fall, at times, definitely has it's place on my calendar.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      yesturday we were about 1/2 mile below the sartell dam and 4 jet skiis headed north to the dam area. the kind that yo stand on. looked like they all had go pros on helmets and looked like they were on a mission to have some fun. would have been nice to see what they did up there.

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
