Info on Trowbridge Lake

5 posts in this topic

Has anybody fished this lake? Also, does anyone know if the access to Lake Olaf is open this year?

The access to Lake Olaf is flooded out due to high water on that lake. I have never fished Trowbridge.

Yeah, it's been closed for a few years, was hoping it would reopen. I have always fished the lake 3-4 times a year when we go to visit relatives in Barnesville. I would catch alot of nice bass and healthy northerns. Also was a make shift launch on East Olaf, is that still there?

I fish Trowbridge quite a bit. Realy shallow landing with no dock, gets intersting some timess. There are some nice bass in there as well as good amount of panfish and some eyes. This year has not been the best year for torwbridge so far, too much pressure when the bite was on early in the spring

My parents had a cabin on Trowbridge for a number of yeaqrs and it is a nice lake for pan fish and bass. Sometimes the crappies will have a really do class and they can be caught by the hundreds. The bass action can be great. I have one on my wall caught back in the late 80s.

Eyes are never the fish to cahse out there but can be found at times.

Good luck.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
