Cascade Lake

14 posts in this topic

Anyone heard when this lake is going to open up to the puplic. I heard the park opening is gonna get pushed back to 2009. It was suppose to be this summer. I hope the stock it with more than panfish and bass. We need a northen lake or some wallyes. Why not start with this lake. If you're wondering what lake this is. Its right next to 52 and 14 west.

According to the City of Rochester website, it's still slated for Fall 2008 for completion. They've got a lot of work to do if that's the case.

All I know is that it will be a nice addition to the other fishing options we have. I am looking forward to it.

I was talking to a buddy who lives out that way and he was pumped about having a fishing hole that was closer to home. He also mentioned that "they" had redesigned the lake last year. Instead of one gigantic lake "they" decided to break it up into smaller bodies of water. This redesigning of the lake is what has pushed back the completion date; according to my buddy.

I live in Kasson so having something a little closer to the homefront would be nice for me and my 4 yr old son to take advantage of. Can't wait to see it completed

I hadn't heard about the lakes being left seperate. The last I had heard was that they were going to open it up into one large lake. But that may have changed, I don't know for sure.

They split the lakes in two for clearer water. Someone hinted to me that we might have another trout lake. I don't know how people would feel about that.

I personally would rather see it stocked with other gamefish, like walleye and pike or somethin along those lines.

Hey Tipup101

No I haven't been out to Naylor Pond. I was meaning to trip out there this last pheasant season and scout it out but never got a chance too. I heard to that they have a decent amount of panfish out there, but I also think I heard that this last summer or fall that the DNR was planning on doing/or has done a drain down on that pond. Seem to recall that being in one their weekly email newsletters. Do a search on the DNR website and see if my memory is playing tricks on me. If the pond has been drained down then I seriously doubt that their would be a lot of action on Naylor...

R Dawg, thanks for the weblink...I knew I say a briefing of the project online, but thought I read it on the KTTC site.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
