Pelican Lake West of St Micheal

3 posts in this topic

Does any one know what's in this lake... this is no information on the DNR Website... how deep?, kinds of fish?, boat access?

I may move to the area and just curious about the lake. Any info would be great.

I don't know a whole lot, but if you look in the Annandale/buffalo/big lake forums there is a few posts. From what I gather access is a bit scetchy. There is a public access on the west side. I think its about 13ft deep. Pretty much a panfish lake.

Lake has big crappies in it as well as some nice gills but they are hard to track down. Quite a few people do fish around the south access. North end gets to 12ft deep and is just one big basin so fish roam alot. DNR is planning to draw the lake down to improve duck habitat. It is not managed as a fishable lake. Access right now is difficult as the public access is at south end and the lake is fairly large.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
