Rush Lake

8 posts in this topic

I am thinking of heading up to Rush there on monday. I have never fished it before, was just wondering if any any anyone might be so kind as to help me out with a starting point. East or west? I have heard of people doing good earlier in year but nothing latley, courious if anyone could tell me a location of access, heard of landing by CJ's bar? Any help would be great thanks!!

Check out the east central forums, there is plenty of info on there for Rush Lake. There are accesses at the north ends of both lakes, if you check the DNR site, go to lake finder and type in Rush in Chisago county, and it will let you look at the maps. They show you were the accesses are. The landing at CJ's is closed, as is the bar, a very sad situation behind that. Have fun.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
