Snelling lake + Permit?

4 posts in this topic

I think i might bring the canoe to snelling lake on sunday and try for some northerns. I want to get out bright and early, do i need any special permit to fish the lake or get into the park? If so what time does the ranger station open where i can get a permit?

Thanks for any help!

Happy Opener!

You don't need a canoe to catch them feisty pike. Fishing from shore will be just fine but it doesn't hurt being able to explore the whole lake. There plenty and fun to catch. Use lighter tackle for a challenge.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
