Blue Lake - Hubbard County Who Is Going for Trout?

4 posts in this topic

I went to Blue last weekend scouting for

panfish and nailed a couple of really nice Rainbows (17" +). Of course I threw them back into the lake (still out of season). My question is: Who is going to Blue Lake for the trout opener and do you think it will still be a hot bite?

I use to hit up blue all the time in the summer with my ex. The trout seemed far and few, although I know there are plenty. Couldn't tell ya much for fishing them in the winter. I plan on coming home for opener. \:\)

The ice out there is pretty good. It was inconsistent early on, but vehicles are traveling everywhere. No slush.

As for trout, not many people hit it during summer for trout. There are some big ones in there. When the season opened up during the winter, a few groups were out on the first day, but not much for activity after that (in terms of anglers). My father in law lives out there and I ask him often.

The DNR had proposed a winter season out there beginning three years ago because the local office felt that the trout resource was underutilized. Unfortunatley the change in regulation was attached to a "package" of rule alterations which held it up for quite a while.

I'm doing the trout thing next week, I'll let you all know how it goes.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
