How's the fishing on Waska?

Recommended Posts

So have any of you guys been on Minnewaska lately? If so, have you been having any luck? This time of year has been pretty solid for me in the past but I haven't had a chance to get up there yet. I will be up at my parent's place over Thanksgiving and might come up the weekend before also. Just curious if anyone has been having any luck with the eyes. Any predictions on when the lake will freeze? Do you think it will be open water until the end of the month?

It was pretty good until mid-October, then pretty much quit. Only a few and those are small. Last 4 times out have not been worth the effort. Don't see people out there any more so must be slow for most. Go figure.

Hey Nate. I put the boat into storage today. Getting to cold for these weary old bones. I think the fish can still be had. If I don't talk to you again have a great Thanksgiving and a mild winter.

I went out last weekend, it was probably the last open water trip of the year for me. We did pretty good on the crappies down by Glenwood and then got on a nice walleye bite at dark on the Starbuck end of the lake. I'd give it about a 50/50 for freeze up by the end of the month. The small sloughs are already frozen over.

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
