Lake Rebecca by Rockford

5 posts in this topic

Anybody out there who is familier with Lake Rebecca by Rockford? I'm looking into fishing there tonight. I see the closest access point is on the east side. Is that the only access? Driving conditions and best aera to fish woud be nice to know. Thanks

Never fished this lake in the winter. I do fish it in the summer at times for miskie. The only access is on the maintainace road to the east. There is one in the park, but I believe that is closed. Not a lake that is fished very much in the winter time. There are some good sized sunnies and crappies in the lake, just have to find them.

It's been a couple of years since I have fished Rebecca, but I believe it is still doesn't allow vehicle traffic. No gas motors.

In the past I have caught Crappies on the East side just off of the road. Not the biggest Crappies in the world, but was able to weed thru for some eaters.

Hey Bobmac, I just drove by the east access yesterday. There are signs up saying the lake is aerated and the ice is unsafe. It doesn't look like a single person has fished it, not even one snowmobile track across the lake. Besides that I haven't seen a decent panfish come out of that lake in years. Between the muskie eating everything and the hundreds of mungs taking EVERYTHING out don't know that there's a whole lot in there. I wouldn't waste my time personally.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.

      Got a Abu Garcia veritas medium heavy 7 foot rod paired with a revo sx 7:1 I believe ratio. Will this be a good spinner bait rod? I might play with some bigger bass jigs or 3/8 jig heads with swim tails. I have 2 other rods 7 foot mediums, one for cranks moderate fast action with Revo winch,  and the other all around use a veritas with revo s 6:4 also. tired of having to retie all the time. Should this work? I don't do the big football jig things much. and have spinning rods for wacky and small jigs. Just trying to get a better system worked out Thanks guys. Lots of help on here.

      Yes, good report!   I travelled 210 from Brainerd to Duluth and see the ice is getting dark but has only pulled away from shore in a few areas.  I didn't see anyone fishing but did see a few auger piles on the ice.  The piles suggested maybe 10-12 inches of ice.  It'll go soon.   One thing for sure is the stores are DONE with the ice season.  I picked up some custom rods from Northlander and want to put reels on em for this weekend but can't find any in lines anywhere!  Called around too.  Same story - all packed away to get the summer stuff out.
