Open Water?

Recommended Posts

Anybody have a listing of lakes that are open already or close to it? I can't wait to get out on the water!

Hey Lost,
The only lake that I have seen all the way open is Moore Lake in Fridley (it has a fountain in the middle of it to help it along). I don't know anything about the fishing in the lake but there are always ice fishermen out there. If the other lakes around here are not ice-free soon I will be going there to give it a shot. It was so promising when the temps were close to 70 last week but the ice is sure taking it's time now. I can't wait to make that first cast of the season!

I heard on the news last night that pretty much everything south of Fariboult(sp?) is open. That line should move north really soon with the warm and windy weather we have on tap.

Lake Smetana is open. It had a winter kill. But I only saw dead carp so that's a good thing.

Crooked Lake in Coon Rapids is pretty much open, you could for sure fish off the pier if you like that.

Wirth Lake is completely open. Not a great fishing lake by any means, but it'd be your own private lake if you wanted to try out your new electronics, trolling motor or practice backing your boat into the water.

Snelling Lake (Ft. Snelling State Park) appears completely open, at least from the freeway.

I saw several smaller lakes in St Paul open this evening - including a few that had no more than fifteen-twenty feet of open water near shore just two or three days ago.

I also dropped by Phalen & Gervais/Spoon to a couple of good early-season panfish shore-fishing spots, to take a few casts with the new rod. Nothing. Doesn't seem like they've moved in quite yet.

SlabSlammer, thanks for telling me about Crooked Lake! I'll hafta give that one a try on Sunday after I'm done shopping at Capra's "garage sale".

I was at Moore Lake today and they were removing the "Thin Ice" signs. In order to catch anything there I'd imagine that you need to cast as far into the deep hole as possible.

Thanks for the heads up everybody! I guess while I'm waiting for the rest of the ice to open up I should try and fix my boat so it can actually float.

Bryant opened today. The last of the ice went out this morning.

Cedar Lake south of Prior is also open. If the weather is decent tomorrow, we may hit one of them.

Most of the lakes in the Hutchinson area are open. I am not sure why all of the lakes in the twin cities are still frozen and most of the lakes out here are open. I heard they were catchinf them on ????? I will find out and let you know if I did catch them on ????
