Lake Washington

Recommended Posts

Corey Bechtold

Just wondering if anyone has a update on lake conditions? I know that there are a lot of good opportunities for Panfish out there and I would be interested in hitting it early this season (CPR only!).

I'm ready!

Hey Corey, I recognize you from the st cloud forum. I drove by lake Washington yesterday and there was still ice in the main lake but the section between stella and washington was open. I did not see anyone fishing it but im sure they will be in the near future. I plan on trying the main lake(washington) in a week or two.

Have you fished washington much?

Good luck. ff

I know that Washington gets pounded for Walleyes so I would like to hit it before the opener when it gets real busy. Keep me posted and I'll try to get out there and see what I can do.

Washington has been so weedy the past two years it has been hard to find the walleyes out there. Last fall I really nailed them after we had three+ inches of rain a couple days before holloween. IThe fish were so big it was hard to find a keeper. There should be some good fishing this year.

As far as crappies, I also think there should be a bunch of them to be caught. ff

Have you had any luck fishing Crappies? I hear they run rather large so I am interested in chasing them.

Years ago I did, latly people have been fishing them so hard right off shore that I shyed away from it and tried finding them around the docks on the main lake. There are some biggens in there but you there are some smaller ones also. The bigger ones are usually off by them self somewhere. ff

I took the highway between Stella and Washington on Wednesday around 5pm and Washington looked to be wide open, while Stella had a large sheet of ice/slush yet. I would think everything should be open with these temps and terrible winds today.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
