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....

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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
