Ice fishing around Chaska/Carver area?

5 posts in this topic

Anyone ever ice fish backwaters or slack areas within 20 miles of Chaska/Carver? I know the river can be pretty hairy come ice fishing time, but I would suppose there is some fisheable ice out there. Any ideas?

There are a bunch of backwater lakes in that radius. I just haven't found the time to get out and try a whole lot. I did make it out one weeknight and tried Browns near Jordan. Not enough depth. I have a couple more in mind that I would like to try........just.....need.....more......time.

Well I'd really like to try ice fishing on the river some time. The nature of river ice makes me abit apprehensive about exploring alone. So if anyone here ever wants to try a new spot, shoot me an email:

Hey dtro,

Have you ever tried Beason lake, down in the state park? I never thought about trying it in the ice season but when I was a kid we used to ride our bikes down there and seems like we always caught something!

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
