Green Prairie/Fish Lake

6 posts in this topic

Green Prairie/Fish Lake I'm wondering if anyone's ever heard of this lake? It's located between Little Falls and Randall. There used to be a resort there, I'm trying to track it down and see if it's still there or even if any resorts exist?

The resort used to be called the Cove Resort. It is still there and is called P&L Lakeside Resort on the west end. Look in a little falls area phone directory if you need the number. I have fished the lake a few times in the past couple years. I have not been out there this year at all but I have heard that it has been slow. The lake does get alot of pressure.

I fished that lake as a kid every year. Had a good time then. Was thinking of maybe going back sometime soon and checking it out. I remember bass, sunnies, pike, perch, & even occasional dogfish. Does the lake hold any eyes?

P&L is correct it is on the south end of the lake. turn sign off hiway 115 between camp riply and randall.

Lake is not fished all that heavy and has decent numbers of eyes. every so often the bluggill are pretty good. 3 to a pound or so.

No kidding there are eyes there? I spent about 10 years in a row on that lake as a kid. Might have to check it out this spring. Thanks for your help. I appreciate it!

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
