French Lake WMA by Rogers, Otsego, Osseo, NW suburb?

Recommended Posts

Scott M

Heard that this was a good ducking spot. Trouble is I can't find it. Not looking to squeeze someone out of their spot, looking for a mid-week hunt. If you can send me in the right direction, let me know through my email in my profile or with a reply.

It's not the French Lake behind Cabela's is it?

I know there is a French Lake in the Rogers, Dayton, south of Champlin area, or somewhere there abouts.............I hunted a small pond just south of it on Private land some 15+ years ago, but know there were hunters on French that were shooting and moving ducks............about all I know or can recall........

I'm pretty sure that's the one you're thinking of. I lived in Dayton for 20 years and thats the only one I've ever heard of around that area...

Go To Google

Click the MAPS link on the top of the Google Home page

Type in Dayton, MN

Center French Lake on The screen and Zoom in...

Directions: 694 W > 81 North > Right on Brockton > Right on 124th Ave....

Thanks all. Got pointed in the right direction. Don't know if I'll be able to give it a try afterall. Buddy's dog got "beaver fever" this week, so we're taking it easy on him.

As far as I know yes you still can. Havent hunted it for years, but there's also another lake right down the road people always hunt called Dubay Lake. You can see it on the Google Map next to French Lake with the directions I posted for Google Maps.

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)
