Reshanaur Lake

Recommended Posts

Can anyone confirm that Reshanaur Lake in Lino Lakes has a fishable population of Northerns and/or panfish. The latest DNR survey is from 1992, so I'm looking for more recent confirmation.

Thanks in advance

I have wondered that about all of those shallow lakes in that chain, not quite sure if Reshanaur is directly part of it but it has similar characteristics, shallow flat basins. I would think they hold up alright in the winter considering there is flow through the whole chain. I know that last 5 or so years has been fairly forgiving on shallower water which is a good amount of time for multiple species to plump up if the water is good. It would be worth a shot in my book. May take a few times with all of that water to check out up there.

Hey Windy,

I have a brother that lives on the lake. Once in a while people get northerns and occasionally a good sized one. Worth a shot if you're into exploring as much as fishing--otherwise there are better options.

Give it a try; you might be surprised!

Thanks for the info..... the plan is to set some tip-ups this winter. Send me an e-mail at [email protected] and I'll reply after I've had a chance to fish it.

There is a park access on the west side of the lake. I talked to the DNR guy for the area a few years back about the fishing and he didn't have much to say about it or the chain. He said there are a few northerns taken every year but other than that he didn't know much. I have never seen anybody actually fishing the lake. I know people fish the channel under the bridge going to the golf course, but I think it is a lot of carp. I live close to the lake and have always thought about bringing the house out there and trying it, but I can always think of a better, proven place to go.

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?
