Anderson Lakes?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I live right by the Anderson Lakes in Eden Prairie. I've noticed a few people ice fishing on the lakes. The DNR report is less than promising, as the lakes are basically weed choked mud bowls. Anybody ever fished here? Thanks for the input.

Does anyone know how to access the eastern Anderson Lake (closest to Bush Lake)?

Go to Google Maps and look at the intersection of 169 and Anderson Lakes Parkway/Bloomington Ferry Road. On West Bush Lake Road close to Bush Lake, look for Amsden Road going west off of WBLR; follow it and look for a small, short path to the water. I don't know what you can do for parking, though, as it is a very narrow road with a lot of construction vehicles coming and going. Looking at the Satellite picture does not look very promising, but Good Luck and let us know how you do! McGurk

Due to the mild winters since '01, I'm guessing that there is a bumper crop of panfish in there. The only problem is that I cannot find a way to access the east lake.

Soooo, Carpfisher, I noticed a portable house out from the flagpole while driving by; any luck? Or such great luck as to keep it quiet? At least let us know if the ice is safe! Good Luck, McGurk

That was indeed my portable. The ice was ok last week, but there was several inches of slush in some places, making a short walk seem very long. I caught some crappies, but the vast majority were the size of small crankbaits. I also caught green sunfish, but they were even smaller than the crappies. The deepest water I found was about 8 feet and the Vex was lit up the whole time with what were probably dense schools of 2 to 3" crappies. It was still good to get out, why don't you shoot me an email...

Definitely. Have you ever fished the big pond? What time would you like to head up on Saturday?

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
