Tamarac Refuge

3 posts in this topic

I know it can be a little work but do any of you fish out in the refuge in the winter, I have always been curios about Pine Lake, I think it is only open to fishing in the winter. I was out on Tamarac earlier this winter and caught plenty of notherns. I would have gone out on Pine but didn't have a contour map.

Just Curious

Good luck finding a contour map for Pine...actually call the headquarters they might have one, but I doubt it.

Dad took us out there one year for perch when I was young. I don't remmeber why, but there were people everywhere. I haven't seen anybody out there since.

Judging from hunting it, I would guess it's 10-12ft deep??

Also, make sure it's open to ice fishing. Check the Refuge regs to make sure. I got warned last year on a different lake that I fish in the summer, but is closed in the winter.

Good luck

There are some LARGE pike in that lake. They seem to cruise up in the water column, so I don't think you'd have to worry about finding deep water.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff
