The lake gets a lot of traffic from pleasure boaters and the access fills up quick. The access isnt great but you shouldnt have problems launching. I dont walleye fish much in the summer but this winter I figured Id try it out. From what I found is that their are lots of little eyes 10-12" and a few bigger 20"+ (which I dont keep) but not much in between. As far as other species... Bass, not much better than many of lakes in the area. Pike, a few nice ones but you probably wont catch much. Muskies, dont even get me started! I tried fishing them on more than one occasion with no success. Panfish are small, its famous for it stunted crappies...

Join the club! All I hear is Owasso produces big muskies, and all I get is lured into a big zero. As soon as I see a pic of an Owasso Muskie, maybe I'll be back...Actually, I'll probably hit Owasso this weekend because I'm so gullible. tongue.gif

Turnup's info is right on in my book. We have seen a few northern in Owasso - one day had two big ones follow a lure in & decide that the boat made a nice cool shadow for them to lurk in. Both stuck around for a few minutes so we had a great look at them. Both appeared to be 30 inches plus which is a big northern in the metro in my book. Good fun even if we didn't hook the toothy things. grin.gif

I have wanted to summer walleye fish owasso, but I normally just bass fish it. In the winter we killed little waleye (8-12) inchers and then later in the winter we found a crappie honey-hole, but most were smaller (6-8) inchers. Biggest winter crappie there was 11 inches and my biggest winter walleye was 18 inches.

My friend lives on this lake and his neighbor walleye fishes a lot. He said to fish in 10-15 FOW by the ski jump. He said around the ski jump there is a rock pile that he kills them on.

I tihnk I am gonna try this weekend...I wil post my results.

Good Luck guys

Was out last night and was very supprised at the size of the bass in this lake. I had about 6 fish 14-15", two 17", and one 21.5" !! The big one must have been pushing 6.5 lbs, very nice fish I realy never new they were in there.

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.
