I just returned from the public access and spoke to three different parties coming off the lake. They report a consistent 6 inches of ice in front of Cigar Island and alot of ATV traffic, all over the lake. Action was slow but, the coming warm front should change that(I told Rush Point Store, on the way back, to get the bait ready!)

Take the Rush City exit, at the top of the ramp take a right and then the next right(across from the grocery store, a signs says Rush Point -> ) Go 1/2 mile to a 'T' and take a right and in about 8 miles you will come to Rush Point. Take a right there on #4 and the access is about 3 miles up the road. At the access you'll see three Islands, one to the left with numerous cabins on it, another straight out which is uninhabited and is called Cigar and another to the right of that called Braham(one cabin on it) My house is the green one parked off the north end with a 'RushPointer' sign on the door. I'm at twenty feet, fishing 3 inches off the bottom with gold hooks and fat heads.

Again, no problem, If you take the Harris exit, just north of North Branch, there's an awesome bait shop, take a right at the top of the ramp and it's just a quarter mile down the road on the right(a big pole barn) he supplies alot of other places and always has the best prices and the largest selection of tackle around.......... GOOD LUCK!

I was broken into once, actually several houses were during a snowstorm by someone on a snowmobile when everyone was home riding out the storm. Since then I don't leave anything of value in my house. I tend to stay away from the more popular areas and fish were there is less traffic and noise so my house is always a prime target. I've not had any trouble for some time though, 10 years or more. It is a fun lake to fish and I'm always running into great folks out there.

I just finished a walleye dinner! Got three more eyes tonight. It was pretty quiet out there, last night it was a very busy place, I think everyone was excited about having good ice this early. I'll head out again in a couple of days.

I pulled the house off tonight to wait until it cools off again, two other parties were pulling theirs off also, man this weather! When the extended forecast looks acceptable again I'll take it back out, maybe Sunday but, it would be nice to have some snow to bank it with, where's winter???????

Well they say a good cold front will start again sometime next week with highs only in the teens and lows below zero at night, I hope they're right, might even get some snow too! I've found the best walleye fishing on Rush is always Christmas through about the second week of January so there's still hope!

Hey guys I am not real familar with Rush lake and even though someone has already given directions I would like to know how far from the Twin Cities is this lake. It sounds like a good lake and would like to get my 6 year old out for a while in the portable. Any info or advice on where to fish it would be greatly appreciated and just to let you know everything I catch is released!!

Hey Fishin

Rush is about an hour north of the cities, it is a great lake, but does recieve a ton of fishing pressure in the winter!

It's been said you can't put an auger on the ice without cutting somones toes off! LOL

It's not that bad, but it does recieve alot of pressure!
Bring your kids out Saturday am for the FM get together!

It amazes me how rude and inconsiderate some people can be on the lake! Especially first ice! I don't know if it seems worse this year or not, but, I find my own spots a long ways away from the crowd, and it never fails, someone comes in right at 4:30 starts drilling holes right next to me...Now, These are not community holes, these are spots way away from everyone. The other night, two people were driving all over the lake aimlessly until they saw me...they both pointed and headed straight for me! I know that it is public water, but, people should have some common sense! If your gonna fish by someone else please be courteous, get out there at least an hour before sunset, don't be hauling your permanent shack out at sunset, and use your 4 wheeler or snowmobile for transportation, not for whipping donuts by my hole! Ok...I will get off my soap box!

Rush is about an even 50 miles from Minneapolis. I commute to downtown MPLS and it's an hours drive from Rush Point. The lake is located approximately 8-9 miles northeast of Cambridge and either 35W or 65 can be taken to reach it, there is a public access on both east and west(check out the DNR sites Lake Finder section, Chisago is the county to enter)
