camp lake??

6 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anybody has any information on camp lake just south of St. Cloud off of highway 10. Everytime I go up to the cabin I see people fishing it. I'm woundering if it's worth droping a line in this winter?

Well if you look at the DNR reports which is usually the first thing i do before trying a new lake it says its full of bullheads and thats all. But we have 10000+ lakes in minnesota so they might not be up to date. Tons of other areas lakes that are worth trying

I've wondered the same thing as well because I would always see people out there. I gave it a try a few times and learned that there are a lot of small pannies and crappies, with a few decent ones on good days. They can keep you busy so a kid may have fun with it but not a lot more than that. I've seen some smaller bass with the aqua vu. Rumor has it that at one time it was a walleye rearing pond, I have never seen a walleye caught or with the aqua vu. Everyone I talked to also said "they heard" of walleyes and were giving it a try. I dropped the camera by one of the perms out there last year and there were six piles of beer cans on the bottom, so I think some of the people are out there to catch a buzz and not so much fish. Not a lake for me, try it if you wish and maybe you'll be suprised but there are many more productive lakes around.

That survey was done in 1980.

My brother lives on this lake. I haven't fished it much. The little I have fished caught a ton of little largemouth. There are also sunfish, crappies, pike, and bullheads in there with a few walleyes.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
