Vadnais Lake??

Recommended Posts

GoggleEye

Does anyone know if there is a launch on Vadnais (east Basin) that is publicly accessible?? I don't see a launch indicated on any of the maps I have looked at. Am I stuck with putting a canoe in only? Thanks for any help.

Because it is the St Paul city water supply. So they guard it pretty closely.

And they just found Zebra Mussels in there so they will be watching a lot closer out there too. Not a good deal for the lake. Expect to see a big stink about now needing to clear the pipes of the mussels quite often and how much it costs taxpayers to do it.

Remembering how the zebra's improved the water clarity on Erie, would that mean St. Paul will get water so clear they forget there's water in their cups. Imagine that, "Honey, I hear it running but don't see it, are you sure there's water". grin.gif

Man, what a bummer. The surveys say there are some big walleyes in there, and a good amount of them too. What a bunch of bull!

Boat Launch on Vadnais? No way! This lake is shore fishing only. You cant even wade in the water! This is how strict this lake is.......

However, it is the BEST shore fishing lake in the whole metro area, in my opinion....

Largemouth bass, pikes, walleyes, can all be caught with ease from shore..... Dont you ever wonder why poeple fish the whole shoreline?

I use to catch walleyes all of the time on that lake... Right after you pass the water pump garage when you first enter the park... There is a big drop off from shore there... That walleye location is usually packed with fisherman...

The fish populations are so good because of the limited fishing on the lake...

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
