What time of year are you looking at going there? What species? There are a wide variety of fish in there.

But consider this....It is the only lake in the area where motorboats are allowed. Rochester is 15 minutes away, so there is a large population of people with 1 lake to go to. The Zumbro!

Fishing can be very good there at all times of the year. But, you will have to work around the traffic.

Weekends for me are a no-no. You have no chance at all, maybe the first hour-two of light. After that it is full of pleasure boaters. The lake is long and narrow and people take advantage of that. All the way down the lake and then all the way back up the lake! Some weekdays are the same way.

If you want to know more on it, there is a lot of info. posted on it in the Rochester forum.

Good luck!

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
