Metro Area Fishing

9 posts in this topic

I'm currently working in the Cities and am looking for good spots to fish after working hours. I'm out near the 55/494 junction. I'd like to try around the area before branching out. If anyone could point me in some good directions I'd appreciate it.

Calhoun, Harriet, and Nokomis are all pretty good, relatively speaking, and not too far from you.

Good luck!

Medicine lake is less than a mile from there, read posts on this lake and you should find all the info that you will need.

What kind of fish do you want to catch? I live near you and could point you in some good directions for specific species.

Medicine would be an excellent choice. Nice panfish and pike population. Also a shot at the occassional walleye due to recent stocking.

I read the former postings and drove by there tonight. I think I'm good to go give it a try. Thanks everyone.

A good sleeper lake that it by Calhoun and Harriet is Ceder. I would give a try if your looking to catch some bigger fish.

Hey Cahuna,

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
