French Lake WMA by Rogers, Otsego, Osseo, NW suburb?

8 posts in this topic

Heard that this was a good ducking spot. Trouble is I can't find it. Not looking to squeeze someone out of their spot, looking for a mid-week hunt. If you can send me in the right direction, let me know through my email in my profile or with a reply.

It's not the French Lake behind Cabela's is it?

I know there is a French Lake in the Rogers, Dayton, south of Champlin area, or somewhere there abouts.............I hunted a small pond just south of it on Private land some 15+ years ago, but know there were hunters on French that were shooting and moving ducks............about all I know or can recall........

I'm pretty sure that's the one you're thinking of. I lived in Dayton for 20 years and thats the only one I've ever heard of around that area...

Go To Google

Click the MAPS link on the top of the Google Home page

Type in Dayton, MN

Center French Lake on The screen and Zoom in...

Directions: 694 W > 81 North > Right on Brockton > Right on 124th Ave....

Can you still fire a gun in that area? I know of the Miss. in ER, no more gun use.

Thanks all. Got pointed in the right direction. Don't know if I'll be able to give it a try afterall. Buddy's dog got "beaver fever" this week, so we're taking it easy on him.

As far as I know yes you still can. Havent hunted it for years, but there's also another lake right down the road people always hunt called Dubay Lake. You can see it on the Google Map next to French Lake with the directions I posted for Google Maps.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
