Lake Marion

Recommended Posts

Paul Rohweller

Marion is a nice little lake. Just far enough off the beaten path. Bassin try the west end thru the narrows, concentrate on the bullrush beds. springtime and walleyes go hand in hand. Jigs and rigs with shiners worked along in areas where your showing fish on your locator will produce.. west end too for the panfish.. Should be enough in there to keep it interesting. Good luck and enjoy your time at the lake! Paul

Can anyone give me a quick overview of Lake Marion? I just bought a cabin on the lake this winter and even though I've spent numerous hours on Ottertail area lakes, I've never been on Marion. I understand its a good walleye lake and good water clarity. Any largemough bass.......and what is the panfishing like for the kids?

And from the top of the small point (on the south end of the east half) go west/northwest trolling spinnerbaits and you will pick up some nice northerns.

just so you know there are panfish in different areas at different times of the year, winter-spring you will want to be on little marion and mid to late summer stay on the north/northwest side. and yes it is a great lake, been on it since i was a kid

Never fished it for walleyes but it is a awsome lake if you want to fish sunnies. The west side of the lake you can catch tons of sunfish, the bass hold pretty close to the docks and anywhere there are lots of weed beds.

My family has been on the lake for almost 11 years now. I haven't done much crappie fishing but do know people that do and you can do pretty good. As for bass the south shore and west end of little marion have plenty of bass. As for northerns it seems you can catch them any where but the bar between little and big are pretty good. As for walleyes the fishing is usually good the first couple of weeks and then it will die down but if you keep at it and find them you can catch them and they are very good sized in the lake

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
    • Rick
      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!
