Whitewater Lake/Colby Lake

Recommended Posts

PiKeGuY101

Does anyone know how fishing is on Whitewater or Colby lake near Hoyt Lakes, I have a lot of family that live in the area and always woundered about these two lakes. I've always wanted to try them but haven't gotten aroung to it yet... Any tips or locations to try would be great - not looking for your honey hole but just some pointers...

P101,

I wish I could help you out with an answer on each of these lakes but I have only fished them a couple of times myself. If I had to focus on one lake over the other I would try Whitewater as Colby lake gets a fare amount of Recreational use if I remember correctly.

I believe the St. Louis County lake map book gave a good look of these lakes and their depths and some other useful info.

Hopefully someone else will chime in with some useful info after this is sent back to the top of the list.

My grandparents used to have a cabin on Colby, unfortunately they got rid of it before I came along so I dont know of any hot spots but I do know that my dad, grandpa, and great grandpa used to do pretty well on northerns and crappies. There are also catfish and walleye in the lake.

None that I can recall from stories but I am sure there are a few big ones in the lake. My great grandfather caught a lot of notherns and used them to make kalamoijakka (sp?) which is a Finnish soup made with a cream base and potatoes, corn, and fish along with what ever else one has on hand in the kitchen. He just threw the whole fillets in there, y bones and all.

Has anyone fished Loon Lake near the old Palo Community Center? I would guess it has some northerns and bass, but haven't tried it yet.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      Funny and it worked.  Say, how did you get out without Mommy and the kids?
