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.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
