Cenaiko stocking?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the DNR stocks Cenaiko during the summer like they do to start the winter trout season?

A little off the subject but, Haad, what would you try to use for a fly or nymph when fishing Ceniko. I river fish, but haven't really tried lakes and Ceniko is close to my house

Great news! I'll hafta head out there and see what I can hook into if they're not all gone by now. There's some decent smallies in there that I'm sure have gone after some fingerlings.

Cenaiko gets hit hard, the 1st few weeks of the season, summer and winter! Once the bite drops off, the crowds drop off, then it is a little more interesting...less fish, but more satisfiying when you get one, because you have to work for them. Sometimes, the ones that are left will surprise you and go on a binge and even after all the pressure, you can still bag afew. Sometimes the DNR stocks it more then once.

They did stock Cenaiko with 2,000 rainbows in April of this year.

that sucks that they only stocked 2000 rainbows this spring, no wonder the fishing has been so slow, they usually put in 3,000. I wouldent waste your time fly fishing ceineko, you wont catch anything, the only time you could get fish is casting a dry fly off the dock in the evning. They will feed on bugs in the evning sometimes, usually before a storm.

Well, I don't fly fish so I'm throwing little things out that slowly sink that I hope interest them. Haven't made it out yet. I'll need to get out there this week sometime.

This lake can be very slow once it's been hit hard for awhile after stocking.


P.S. Don't forget the trout stamp. Lehmann's Bait is just down the road toward Anoka on Coon Rapids Blvd (Main St in Anoka). They can give you ideas on how to fish and you can get a license there. Very nice people. Though you can't fish live bait on Cenaiko, they have about the cheapest bait I've seen in years. I was just there ($1.50 for a huge scoop of crappie minnows, $2.00 for a huge fathead scoop, and crawlers were $2.25 I think for a dozen). They are open 24 hrs. After hours is an "on your honor" system. Just thought I'd give a good bait store a plug.

rjj15,
Lakes can be harder to flyfish for trout. I've done it in Colorado with some decent success throwing scuds and other nymphs. The Pass Lake streamer is a fly that works well up north, even in the rivers. Of course there's other species to go after when flyfishing, like carp, bass, northerns, etc. I got four carp Friday afternoon, and lost several others. If it's trout you are after, I'd recommend hitting the rivers sometime soon, they are fishing awesome right now. Haaad
