      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Is it possible to fish Anderson Lake?

Recommended Posts

You know that lake next to Bush Lake? I've read in Ron Schara's Fishing Guide and on the DNR's website that Anderson Lake is fishable, but there doesn't seem to be any public access. Anyone know if it is open for public fishing, and if so, where I am able to fish? Thanks.

Looks like there's no public access on it, but you might be able to park on Amsden rd. on the south east portion.

There's no boat launch on Anderson Lake. It used to have some panfish in it, but it was fished out about 3 years ago...a big winterkill last year knocked the rest out. Last summer I went out there and tried to catch a few small sunfish for turtle food and didn't even get a nibble.

Northeast Anderson Lake (south of Ensign Rd in Bloomington) was drained a few years ago to take care of undesireable pond weeds. It has not recovered and is unfishable. They are public waters but there is not a good access or any sort of fishing pier. I have walked on it in winter before the drain. Ice was sketchy at best even back then.

Southeast Anderson Lake (west of Birchwood Lane in Bloomington) has a small gravel "access" if you can call it that, but no parking, turnaround, or concrete to stop you from sinking in. You could drop a kayak or canoe in there but I'd never risk a boat. I agree with the winterkill in there, too. I caught some small sunnies and a crappie about 5 years ago, but the level is so low it is tough to keep fish alive year to year. It has not been drained, but is low due to lack of snow and rain.

The City of Eden Prairie used to have the Anderson Lakes listed as closed to boating, canoeing, fishing, swimming, etc. The link, however is giving me a 'runtime error' and only what pops up into the Google search results is viewable:

Following the "Quick View" link, you can see a .pdf showing a Public Access Information field which states:

"No watercraft allowed on lake; no fishing per City ordinance."
