Favorite Fishing Lakes around Chanhassen

Recommended Posts

fishinalot

A good friend of mine recently moved near Chanhassen and would like to know a few of the better lakes around that area. He fishes mainly panfish and northerns.

I've heard that Minnewashta is dynamite for northerns with some pannies too. That would probably be a good lake to check out. If you go just west of Chan to the park preserve by Victoria, theres several lakes with pannies and pike.

Lotus can be an excellent lake, summer and winter.....Riley can also be good. As someone else stated, just west on 5 is Stieger, Zumbra, Parley, Minnewashta, Waconia, Pearson just south of Victoria...........Many great little lakes in the area.........or there is always Minnetonka!

Tonka is an amazing fishery, considering all the traffic etc. Best to go early or late in the day, but just about anywhere you can catch fish, Sunnies, Crappy, Bass - Small and Large mouth, Pike, Wally's, Muskies, Carp, Bowfin..........it's got it all.........

whaletail is always decent, but a long walk from the landing.

Another excellent lake, not what it used to be 10 years ago, but most are surprised at what you can catch on Whaletail and where on that lake......Bass, Northerns, Crappie..............
