Long Lake

6 posts in this topic

I am looking for some information on Long lake. We purchased a home on the lake and have heard several different stories on how the lake and fishing has changed over the years and now I see that there is a Trout stream that flows into the lake. Does any one out there have any history on the lake?

GAH! Which Long Lake are you talking about? If it is the Long Lake between Aitken and Glen,across from Dam Lake, I might be able to help. You might also want to scroll back in the forum. I answered a similar question last December or January about it. I will wait for your response to this.

GAH: Long Lake was an old Granite Quarry back in the late 19th century. Back then they used to quarry a lot of Granite in Aitkin County. They quarried down an hit water and flooded the Quarry and the result is now Long Lake. It has a hole that is over 100 feet. It contains a few walleyes and some pike but it is mostly a panfish lake. Lots of sunfish, crappies and a few perch.

Most people do not fish Long Lake because it is overshadowed by Dam lake. Dam has more structure and is a better Walleye lake than Long Lake. If you do fish Long move around a lot. You can get your limit of panfish but like I said you are going to have to travel a bit to do so.

There are Walleyes and Pike and a few largemouth around the docks and shallows but in my experience they are few and far between. I would cross the road and fish Dam if you want larger fish than sunfish, crappies or perch.

Take care;

Tight Lines.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
