Coon Rapids damm Trout ?


18 inch Crappie

Recommended Posts

Fished the opener a couple years ago, but forgot about the lake there till I drove by it today. Anyone make it out for some trout and how did you do? Was there 1000 people there?

I never really tried fishing there, but i do watch people fish there a lot, from ice fishing to spring/summer.... I dont seem to see anybody catching trout there, mostly just tiny sunfishes..... I know the DNR stocks it with trout, but Is that lake really that good??

More of a place to go fart around, get some fresh air, not sit in front of the tube, etc. you get fish every now and then but nothing to really write home about. Gets pounded pretty hard during winter and summer.

It was fun and also had some panfish mixed in.

A couple years ago when I went, a lady got a 16 inch Crappie out of there. You never know what is in that little lake.

Looking to fish this weekend, 1st time for trout. I have noticed from past postings on Cenaiko that the trout hit first thing in the morning at day break. Is there an evening bite as well? If not, looks like I will have to hit it sunday before the Daytona 500 smile.gif

Any helpful hints would be appreciated!

I'll give an update next week.

Yes theres a fee every day unless there still doing construction. Yes trout bite good in the evening. and power Bait inthe jar make little balls on your hook, along with waxies and crappie woops thats right no live minnows alowed there I just remembered my first trip. try pink or rainbow colored power bait. and small silver jigging spooms might help to. Good Luck and Aqua Vu grin.gif

I pretty much go with the 4lb test line and small panfish ice jig/fly with 3 count'em 3 waxies. Have caught them at all depths..buddie of mine caught a really nice brookie a foot under the ice and we were in 20ft of water then I caught a nice Brown a foot off the bottom in 13 ft so go figure..if you have a vex just keep an eye on that..oh yeah, got both these fish at 2pm on the weekend..good luck

It's going to be cold on saturday. I'm going to Cenaiko anyway. I heard there is a one line limit. Are there any other restrictions that are different from outside of the park that I need to know? Thanks a lot for the help.

      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

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
