Moose Lake Area

5 posts in this topic

I will be in Moose Lake for a seminar during Sept. Can someone give me an idea on some shore or pier fishing in the area. I am looking to go during the spare time for a couple of days. Thanks for the info.

depending on how much free time, there are a number of rivers up there that you can wade. If it is early enough in Sept. you can wet wade it

I assume your talking about the town of Moose Lake. There is a fishing pier right in town. Its on Moose Head Lake right near where the Moose Horn river runs out. Moose Head is just a wide area of the river. Never fished off the pier but I see people there quite often. Just up the freeway is the town of Barnum. Bear Lake is right on the other side of the freeway and there is a deep shore line right next to the access. I see people fishing there also. Its a small lake but you may catch some crappies, bass, and pike from the shore.

Thanks for the info. I also went onto the DNR web site to get some info on the state park. Should be able to get some fishing and relaxing in.

Yea, I forgot about the fishing pier on Echo. That one will be much quieter. There are some decent crappies and bass in Echo.

Good luck.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
