I got one word for you: Unfishable. Well due to the fact that most of the Lakes in the area are all weeded out. It's so thick it's almost impossbile to fish from shore or even canoe. Holland is probably your best bet for shore fishing.

Other than that the usual panfish & bass. I like to use a hook and plastic worm to skip the surfaces of weeds and edges. Otherwise wait till fall comes around again.

I think "Unfishable" is a strong word. I had some of my best fishing in those lakes in June. I will agree that shorefishing would be tough. If you have a canoe you can get to plenty of fishable places. You will need to go with heavy line and drop shot the holes in the weeds. There are some monsters in there that will test your equipment. The farther back in the park you go the better fishing you will find. Good luck if you try it.

These lakes are definatley not "unfishable" from a canoe. Sorry I have no reports that are current. Did well out on those lakes in early June as well fishing from shore. Work plastics and jigs deep in these lakes if you have a small boat or canoe and you may just run into a few wink.gif

Unless you are a diehard, a person cannot get a canoe past jensen lake on the lebanon hills conoe route, the water is way to low and there is to many lilly pads, and yes the weeds and lilly's are so bad that it is unfishable. Holland and Schultz lake look good but I did not fish them. Good Luck

Sneakattack,

Next time try Holland and shultz, those were the two I was referencing to, I should have stated that before sorry about that. I don't even mess with those other lakes, too shallow.

You can forget about Schultz. I was there last week past Sunday and it was thick in weed all over except the swim area. Holland is the only one in the area that is decently opened.

I work inside this park, out of the visitor center. We had some great fishing this past summer. Schulze is very fishable from a canoe and has a couple of good shore spots. Holland you will need a canoe to get at the big fish, but you have to carry it down from the parking lot. If you park on cliff, you can get a ticket, even if just unloading. They are trying to grow plants along the side of the road there. We have a couple of other good fishing lakes inside the park, a little harder to get at. Jensen is very shallow with lots of weeds, and has small bluegills and lots of bullheads. The portage trail from Jensen is also pretty bad, but from the visitor center is great. The visitor center also has free fishing gear you can rent out for the day, and canoes/kayaks for $8 an hour. We also just started selling bait (dozen crawlers for $1). If you want anymore info, just stop in the Visitor Center.

All of these bass were caught in Lebanon.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.
