Evergreen Lake

2 posts in this topic

Ok guys and gals I'm hoping someone has some info about this lake. It's the Evergreen lake North of Itasca State Park inside the Schoolcraft Refuge if any others exist. I'm looking at renting a cabin on the lake and just wondering if anyone has fished it before, so I have an idea what the fishing is like. Any info would be great, Thanks in advance for any responses.

This maybe a little late but...

Evergreen Lake is a great quiet, small (200 acres and max about 35ft) lake if you want to have a relaxing time. I wouldn't call it a fishing destination but there are some good fish in there. There are some good bass along the pads and many, many smaller northern, stunted perch/gills and some ok crappies.

The lake was fished very heavy years ago thru the ice and never recovered fully. Word got out and the shacks were stacked on top of each other.

My family owned two cabins on the lake for several years selling them much to my dissapointment a while back and I knew those waters very well. The DNR hase not done much but some eye stocking and I have caught a few while tossing plastics for bass.

I was up last fall and not much has changed except the traffic. Was a time that ten cars going by was a busy day and now prob fifty.

The cabins that I spent my summers have been changed (one is even for sale)and there are more around the lake but if you want scenery, quiet and a few fish w/o jet skis and speed boats you can't go wrong as I don't think that will change.

If you are thinking of renting at the resort Bud and Joy are great and the prices are not bad.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
