Was headed down 14 the other day and noticed a small crowd and some portables out there - which I hadn't seen in previous years.

Is this lake still private access that anyone knows of?

You can pay to get on it I think its up to $10 heard rumors of $20. Aside from some ok pike the fishing isnt much better than some of the surrounding lakes.

I got a buddy that is out there right now, been out there for awhile today.

I guess they have gotten a few sunfish and a couple of crappies, and a bunch of bullheads.

Nothing to brag about I guess, but yes $10 to get on.

From the way it sounds it isn't worth the $10.

Been out there this year a couple times. Never seen a bullhead caught on the lake.

Been getting sunnies and crappies with very few keepers. The lake is weedy as ever but the water seems clear.

Poor pike fishing both trips.

For $20 both trips could have had a lot more to show for on the area lakes.

It is $10.00 per carload.

Went out there 3 weeks ago and just caught dinky sunnies.

You are better off going somewhere else.

Went out Saturday there was 4 of us we set out tip ups and got a few northers and some large mouth bass and caught a bunch of little dinky sunnies and small crappies not worth keeping, I would recommend another lake I think this one needs some time to make a come back

You got that right!

BTW,

Did catch a huge bullhead out there last week. That day I was the only vehicle on the lake.

Yep, I had a buddy that knew some people that lived on the lake. He took me out a couple times before it was opened up to the public, you could barely keep the pound to nearly two pound Sunfish off your line.

First couple years of Ice fishing on it after it was opened up were awesome also, but it did not take long for it to go downhill.

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.

      I got the Polluted From my own observation.  The North Branch of the Sunrise River, At least the part that Runs though The town of  North Branch, Isn't the healthiest.  I Walked by the river in a small park. The River was full of peoples Trash.  Like Washer Machines  and trash bags. People Trash Either ran into the river, or People just dump their trash their.

      All right People, Thanks for the info, next time I have a question about the St. Croix, I'll Post it on the thread. Peltier Sounds good, But your right the rivers are my best bet. Thanks for the link I'll make sure to use it.

      I don’t know who told you the sunrise river is polluted. Aside from a little bit of run off and algae blooms, the river is quite clean. The lower river is a popular summer float tubing spot. Come duck season, it will seem like the whole east metro is packed into Carlos Avery.
