Lake in Spring Lake Park

7 posts in this topic

There is this tiny pond east of HWY 65 on Osbourne (west of Silver lake road) and I always saw people there ice fishing and I drove by there Sunday and say 2 guys in a little boat, any idea's if they are catching anything?? I wouldn't think there are any fish in this due to the size.

I've found that place once and wished I had fishing stuff to take with me. Haven't really looked for it again, but wish I would have taken the time to find it. This is where there's a small playground in a park, right?

This Pond is called Spring lake,if were talking about the same one, playground and beach on the N.side? I used to live right by it. Anyways I caught 1 northern there a few yrs ago and some small sunnies but that was it.It suffered winterkill frequently but if I'm not mistaken an aerator is now in place. I no longer live by there but would like to hear if you have any luck.

Lost,

I took a walk down there the other day and the shoreline is very shallow, you pretty much need a canoe to fish this pond.

Maybe sometime we can meet down at Long after the opener and try for Northerns?

I grew up on this lake. Not really any fish in it anymore. Some stunted sunnies and a stray northern but it does winterkill quite a bit. I remember fishing it as a kid daily for years and never really catching anything. We still had fun though.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
