Rush Lake Slabs

2 posts in this topic

I live by Minnewaska in Pope and have no problem catching the Eyes down here but cant find the crappies I have only fished Rush once but was impressed by the slabs we caught that year long ago Im planning a weekend trip and it may be years before I can get up there again any advice would be so so helpful as I dont have 4 wheel drive and we fished in front of the inlet out from the bay by the main acess where the water was open. Is it still a good crappie lake or even worth the drive a recent report would be helpful. I remeber having to drive all the way to the other side of the lake then across to get to that spot Maybe I would just pull my shelter out from the main access Ice thickness and snow depth would be a plus as well thanks in advance Eyehunter

Went out on the east end of Rush Sat afternoon for just a couple hours. There must have been 18-24 inches there, and if you watch where you go the snow isn't a problem. We didn't do too well for fish though, only some small bluegills. Oh well, it was just nice to be out on the lake.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
