Any suggestions for places to fish near Edina, SW Suburbs?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone suggest some good places around the Edina/SW area to fish? I live in Rochester but grew up in Edina but never really got into fishing until I moved. I have tried Fort Snelling Park on 494, but dont know any other places to try. Thanks

class of 97 myself - ha i have herd of addition. not seen it myself yet..... the bass pond is great! so small you would never guess there is anything in there. the story goes on of the homeowers on it is a major rep for rapala and has the lake stocked with bass. anyway i dont think there is anyway to get to it without tresspassing nor do i think anyone would be happy if i gave you directions on here. but if you want to leave your email i will be happy to let you in on it.

After thinking about it, I believe I know what you are refering to. Does this pond connect to the 9mile creek? If so my buddy's parents live right back there and I have actually fished that before then. I'm trying to recall the names of any seniors that I knew when I was a soph. but cant.

I've lived in south minneaplis and then edina pretty much all my life, there is a lot of fishing close by. The Minnesota(i like the black dog area) and Mississippi(pool 2) River's are both within a short drive. The MPLS chain of lakes(calhoun, harriet, cedar, isles,nokomis, hiawatha, the minnehaha creek) isn't too far either. A short drive to eden praire will put you in around a lot of good smaller lakes(riley,staring,mitchell,round,etc etc, looking at a map and then checking the dnr site is a good way to check out these type of lakes). And then Bloomington's got a few(bush,normandale,hyland). There are also some smaller lakes/kids ponds like cornelia and taft if you've tykes to take along. There is a lot of fishing to be had in the area.

      Heard one can see open water from the Nelson (Birchdale) access this afternoon. It is getting close.

      Gotcha. If you need a scout out this way,  just let me know.   Spotted 6 more this afternoon right near the house.  They usually dont show hear till mid season.

      Last year’s spot will likely be my fall back spot, along with maybe checking in at that other place you mentioned before.  The good news is I just heard today the birds appear to be doing well at last year’s spot.   The “new” spot is a property that we seem to have “limited” permission on.

      one would think the river might be a little tough to fish this time of the year with the current flood situations and raised water levels along the river.

      not referring to a particular lake.  I thought you get inspected and the seal is broken when you hit whatever lake, then you have to do the process again since seal is broken and you cant get on wright lakes with out it. ? maybe I read it wrong

      Every lake I've been on for nearly a week has been making tons of noise after dark. My GF thought it was gunshots at first. I live by a few different lakes and you could hear the popping from multiple lakes... Hasn't affected the fishing much, if any. That's the important thing to me.

      Fiber Tech just did a walleye for my son. I turned out fantastic! and it only took 6 weeks.  While I was there, they gave me a tour and they were working on a wide variety of fish, including crappies and perch. I would recommend them.
