Oak Lake in Watertown


Recommended Posts

say, does anybody know where a guy could park and access this lake, I know that you have to access the lake by the Luce Line Trail, but I don't know where the closest place to park is----any luck out there, be discrete.

ths closest, and it is still a long walk, is from paul av west of the lake by watertown. DO NOT use a wheeler on this trail. the dnr watches it very closely. and writes many tickets for those that are caught. there is a guy on the south side that has an access for the lakeshore owners to use. but they have paid to have the lake stocked with walleyes, and will not let anyone other than a land owner use this access point. there ia also a guy just west of this point that sometimes will allow access. but you have to travel thru the slew part of the lake to get to the main lake. hope this helps .... paul

just the guy I was hoping to track down...thanks nyte...I figured it was a ways off and a long walk, but I got a feeling it might pay off. Thanks again...

I've been wanting to hit up the lake for about a month now. Does anyone know if there is any snow left on the Luce Line? I'd like to take the sled if I can. Need to go get a new state trail sticker though.

I drive by there regularly, and there's a pretty good patch of dirt. I wouldn't drive my sled down it now. frown.gif

Thanks for the heads up fishingforester. Hopefully we'll get a few inches pretty soon.

Was out on 1/21...never had to take "the walk" before. Felt like i was in "March of the Penguins".

Limited action...No ecectronics...

frown.gifon the path there is about 50-60% dirt for those with snowmobiles.

Walked and almost died today. Caught 2 little sunnies and a crappie for my tank at home. The walks a killer. I'm going to stay on Tonka for the Browns walleye bite. WEst

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick
