Cenaiko stocking?

Recommended Posts

so haaad

Does anyone know if the DNR stocks Cenaiko during the summer like they do to start the winter trout season?

A little off the subject but, Haad, what would you try to use for a fly or nymph when fishing Ceniko. I river fish, but haven't really tried lakes and Ceniko is close to my house

Great news! I'll hafta head out there and see what I can hook into if they're not all gone by now. There's some decent smallies in there that I'm sure have gone after some fingerlings.

Cenaiko gets hit hard, the 1st few weeks of the season, summer and winter! Once the bite drops off, the crowds drop off, then it is a little more interesting...less fish, but more satisfiying when you get one, because you have to work for them. Sometimes, the ones that are left will surprise you and go on a binge and even after all the pressure, you can still bag afew. Sometimes the DNR stocks it more then once.

They did stock Cenaiko with 2,000 rainbows in April of this year.

that sucks that they only stocked 2000 rainbows this spring, no wonder the fishing has been so slow, they usually put in 3,000. I wouldent waste your time fly fishing ceineko, you wont catch anything, the only time you could get fish is casting a dry fly off the dock in the evning. They will feed on bugs in the evning sometimes, usually before a storm.

Well, I don't fly fish so I'm throwing little things out that slowly sink that I hope interest them. Haven't made it out yet. I'll need to get out there this week sometime.

This lake can be very slow once it's been hit hard for awhile after stocking.


P.S. Don't forget the trout stamp. Lehmann's Bait is just down the road toward Anoka on Coon Rapids Blvd (Main St in Anoka). They can give you ideas on how to fish and you can get a license there. Very nice people. Though you can't fish live bait on Cenaiko, they have about the cheapest bait I've seen in years. I was just there ($1.50 for a huge scoop of crappie minnows, $2.00 for a huge fathead scoop, and crawlers were $2.25 I think for a dozen). They are open 24 hrs. After hours is an "on your honor" system. Just thought I'd give a good bait store a plug.

rjj15,
Lakes can be harder to flyfish for trout. I've done it in Colorado with some decent success throwing scuds and other nymphs. The Pass Lake streamer is a fly that works well up north, even in the rivers. Of course there's other species to go after when flyfishing, like carp, bass, northerns, etc. I got four carp Friday afternoon, and lost several others. If it's trout you are after, I'd recommend hitting the rivers sometime soon, they are fishing awesome right now. Haaad

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.
    • Wanderer
      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒
    • osok
      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....
    • Wanderer
      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.
    • Borch
      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
