Reshanaur Lake

6 posts in this topic

Can anyone confirm that Reshanaur Lake in Lino Lakes has a fishable population of Northerns and/or panfish. The latest DNR survey is from 1992, so I'm looking for more recent confirmation.

Thanks in advance

I have wondered that about all of those shallow lakes in that chain, not quite sure if Reshanaur is directly part of it but it has similar characteristics, shallow flat basins. I would think they hold up alright in the winter considering there is flow through the whole chain. I know that last 5 or so years has been fairly forgiving on shallower water which is a good amount of time for multiple species to plump up if the water is good. It would be worth a shot in my book. May take a few times with all of that water to check out up there.

Hey Windy,

I have a brother that lives on the lake. Once in a while people get northerns and occasionally a good sized one. Worth a shot if you're into exploring as much as fishing--otherwise there are better options.

Give it a try; you might be surprised!

Thanks for the info..... the plan is to set some tip-ups this winter. Send me an e-mail at bruhberg@hotmail.com and I'll reply after I've had a chance to fish it.

There is a park access on the west side of the lake. I talked to the DNR guy for the area a few years back about the fishing and he didn't have much to say about it or the chain. He said there are a few northerns taken every year but other than that he didn't know much. I have never seen anybody actually fishing the lake. I know people fish the channel under the bridge going to the golf course, but I think it is a lot of carp. I live close to the lake and have always thought about bringing the house out there and trying it, but I can always think of a better, proven place to go.

      This is close to home for me. I love the dunes, but the refuge is messed up. The refuge told me they were brining native game birds back, so I was excited and said sharptailed grouse and the guy looked and me and said no ringnecked pheasants. I laughed at him and said really he said yes really. I told him ringnecked pheasants are invasive species he argued they are native and I walked out shaking my head.    The refuge could be a strong hold for sharptailed grouse, prairie chickens, and water fowl if they managed for them. The dune could extend this area.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch
