Hyland Lake

7 posts in this topic

Anyone been out on Hyland Lake in the Three Rivers Hyland Park area? Pretty good early spring crappies, but I have never been on the ice there.

I am taking my kids and my dad before he goes to Az for the winter. Would like to catch something to eat, but any action would be good.

It's either there or Medicine. Stopped at Harty's today for bait and Joe gave a few tips.

Thanks for you input on Hyland.

I ended up on Medicine, but I am planning on taking a Texan (but former Minnesotan) out to Hyland on Sunday am. I will let you know how it goes. We'll be out in the am.

I didn't know that. I expect that the aeration location is marked???

Not sure, I have only fished it once from shore in the spring and I don't remember. I always mean to go there, then end up going somewhere else. I think its mentioned in the DNR writeup on their website, but I don't think it mentions a location. You may want to check with them or somebody in the park office. If you do find out, let us know, as I was planning on going out there around the end of the season, and don't feel like getting wet.

Good Luck!

I talked to a co-worker today who lives right by there and he said don't even try it out there, bad ice. I guess I'll head over to Bush or north.

      This weeks warm weather should have the panfish starting to push shallow. Hit a spot for a few min this afternoon.... Not the biggest fish by any means... but a start to open water it is

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.
