Info on Stieger Lake in Carver county.


Recommended Posts

I'm planing on fishing this lake next week. Does any one have any info on it? I know it's C&R, but how's the fishing?

What's working now?

Was out about a week and a half ago. Caught several bass early morning fished 5am to about 7am. Caught them on the inside weed edges on the south bank (by the fishing dock). Used a tube jig with very small weight. All fish were probably 13 to 15 inches. No pike.

If I were you I would stop in Cabin Fever, they usually have good info on this lake.

If you are fishing midday, don't neglect a slip-bobber and leech outside the weededge (colored hooks are a plus with this combo). Also... don't forget your plastic worms.

I'd stop into Cabin Fever and stalk to Jeff or Bubba. They give you the scoop on Stieger!

I know they sell a lot of sucker minnows to the kids that fish off the dock out there. Word on the street is that those BIG BASS love sucker minnows grin.gif

Steiger is a very fun lake to fish, but remember it's catch-n'-release only for pike and bass. In low light periods, topwaters in the slop are hard to beat, and live bait presentations on weed edges are always good. This is a bowl-shaped lake with no points, humps, or other structure, so everything happens in, or next to, the weeds. The folks at Cabin Fever Sports are consistently friendly and helpful.

Some very big pike in there and a couple of really big muskies. Used to fish it on and off. You can fish the whole lake in a morning. Just chuck spinnerbaits on the weed edge. Works for everything in there. Did do some topwater bass fishing with a little success right after sunup to about 8am. Lots of fun.

I live fairly close to this lake and have never fished it... and I second the folks at Cabin Fever - excellent customer service and always friendly! smile.gif

Actually, there's a parking fee only if you're pulling a trailer. It doesn't make much sense to me, but I suppose it helps keep the traffic down. I parked for free all winter when I ice-fished the lake. - Vern

There was a sign at Auburn last Friday about the pay parking being suspended. You may want to look around Steiger for a sign.

A guy I work with lives out that way and said that on the weekends its 5 bucks, but during the week its free.

I called the park. The fee is $5/day for trailer parking or $30 for a season pass.

Fishing was good until the storm moved in. After that the water was mixed up pretty good and the fish were shut down.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?

      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
