Lake City

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone been fishing in the Lake City area on Pepin? Its a spot I've always wanted to try. Is it worth the drive down from the cities? If so where would I start?

Thanks

I grew up down there, but on the other side of the river.

I have been driving by it most weekends and seldom see anyone out there at all.

There are a couple of perms down by Maple Springs, but the word I heard on Lake City is that they were catching so many small walleyes they gave up and tried elsewhere.

I think the LC fishing contest is coming up soon - they have a sign up in town. That might tell us what is happening.

I've heard the same thing from guys who fish off Trailer Park Point (aka City Point), and another guy and his son who each have shacks, one off Central Point and one near the end of the government pier in town.

All reports say they are catching fish, but no great numbers and no size to them at all. I wouldn't drive down from the cities for it, from what I've heard.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
