Diamond Lake

8 posts in this topic

Wondering if anyone can tell me anything about Diamond Lake? I'm new to MN and drive past this lake every day, and thought it might be worth a try this winter. Any info is appreciated.

Which Diamond Lake? The one in Dayton? About 3-4 years ago it was loaded with 9-12" walleyes. They could be 15-17" by now or ???

I guess it is near Dayton. Not far from Rogers HS and Cabelas.

If your talking about the one in Dayton its just a big bowl tops out at 10 feet, no structure to speak of, I have fished it quite a few times best success I've had is putting tip ups all around with just a little crappie minnow. It is very hit or miss, biggest ive ever pulled out of there is 18 inches out quite a few fish, can be fun for a little spur of the moment walleye run.

Is it froze over? Have you checked the ice? Thanks!

bullhead galore in that lake too. I thought the DNR went through with their nets taking out the walleyes somewhat recently? Anyway, the walleyes that are in there are the size of a cigar and probably taste like a mud-pie. There will be some fishermen out there at some point though.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
