Clear Lakes in West Metro

7 posts in this topic

Just curios if anyone has any hints as to some clear lakes here in the west metro. I went and drilled a few holes today on a few lakes that are close to my house, and i dont think that there going to work. So i have to look for other lakes.

Just wanted to see if anyone can help out. If you would like to email, thats ok as well.

You ever try Little Long Lake up NW abit of Lake Minnetonka? I bet the DNR would be happy if you removed some of those trout eating pike. The lake is gin clear and I hear there are some big pike in there...

Its just NE of Whaletail. I'd check the regs and make sure that spearing is allowed in there.

Spearing is allowed I am pretty sure as I have seen many spear houses out there.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
