Wagonga Lake??

9 posts in this topic

My dad and I were wondering how the fishing is on Wagonga Lake? I've heard some good things about it and also some bad things.

I would suggest fishing it early before it gets weed choked. I've done pretty well in the past ice fishing.

Its been a popular lake for the ice anglers. Once the warmer temps come around the bullheads are no longer dormant the walleye fishing is a different story. You hear of very few success stories in the open water season.

Actually the water quality is so bad it really doesnt grow many weeds?!? But still id fish early if your going to fish it. Post how ya do.

I was out there a couple of years ago fishing pike during the summer and the weeds were right to the top even out in the middle of the lake.

DNR did a summer survey in 2005 yielding one sample out of 86 that produced vegetation. The Survey was limited to areas of the lake less than 4 feet deep - if there ain't veggie in the shallowest parts of the lake, there ain't veggie anywhere.

Lack of veggie is due to large populations of carp that never seem to die off anymore. Why is that?

We were out there for a few hours on Saturday morning. Brother caught a nice walleye right away. I missed a couple. We moved on to a different lake after a few hours. I will be back this winter. smile.gif

      I like to sacrifice larger shiners just for their scales.  Ill take my thumb nail and work em off in the hole and a big cloud of scales slowly make their way down.  Ive never been a fan of a pile of dead minnows under my hole.

      Fished today from 23ft-33ft. Moved 8 times. 3 guys. 2 fish. Thus far.... Case anyone else who prefers an honest report cares to hear one.   75+yrs experience with 40+ on this lake during winter. For whatever its worth.

      Has anyone been out the past couple of days and if so how is travel across the lake? Cam u get most anywhere with a 4x4 pickup?

      You might be able to get away with one and half minnows at a time, but no more.... lol

      My experiences would suggest, R&D  resort on Straight Lake and Eagles landing on 5th crow wing.
