Chisago Lake Map. Where can I find one?

Recommended Posts

Preferably an Online map and newer and clearer than the DNR version. Also Whats the best way to access Eagles Nest on Lake Chisago.

Thanks

Not sure about a good lake map...I'd be interested in one myself. I like the Lake Master maps...I think that's what they're called...but I don't think they have one for Chisago...but hopefully I'm mistaken.

As far as accessing the lake...you can either drive out from the channel from the main launch just head right out of the channel and go down the east shoreline...or you can drive out from Lake street...which you can get to by taking a right (if you're headed east on Hwy 8) at the intersection in Chisago and going down a couple blocks and taking a left onto Lake street...Lake street runs right into the lake. Just follow the road that Frankies plows out to the eagles nest...be sure to go east around the pressure ridge that's out there. Last weekend the Lake street access was not in too bad a shape for a truck...I'd advise using the channel access if you have a car...the lake street access gets pretty rutty and the hill can be pretty icy at times making it tough to get up in only two wheel drive.

Edit - I stand corrected...I was just on the Lakemaster site and they do have a map of some of the Chisago lakes. I ordered one up so I'll let you know how it compares to the DNR maps. I picked up the Forest Lake map they put out and was impressed...and found it to be more accurate than other maps I had seen of Forest Lake. Hopefully the same stands true for the Chisago lakes.

First off... Welcome to FishingMinnesota and IceLeaders.. Great to have you with us.

As far as an online map goes.. I dont know of any. If I were you I would stop in at Frankies and get one. They can also give you directions to get on the lake.. The Eagles nest point is near the south end of the lake.

The Chisago area lakes are on the Lakemaster chip and I was just looking at Chisago last night decided if I should go there or South Center on Saturday. I assume there must be paper versions that are fairly detailed either lakemaster or fishing hot spots.

There is a fairly good paper map available that has a number of lakes on it. Including Rush, Chisago/Linstrom, North and South Center and Green. I think there are a few more, but I don't remember all of them. I picked it up at that little bait/grocery store on the south end of Rush Lake. I think it is the same company that puts out all those waterproof plastic maps.

Check out Sportsman's Connection. They have an online map. I think it's a few bucks. I have their books and a few online maps. I also have some lakemaster maps, those are nice too. I'm pretty sure they make a Chisago lake one.

eagles nest is pretty easy to find. if you head south past the high school, you can take a right just past the park road on the left. once you amke your turn head down and the road curves to the left. fallow curve and head straight past housing devlp on your left. head straight and road tuens to dirt. at the end of that road you can drive out.when you drive out turn rt and you will see an island straight ahead. drive around the rt side and there you are!

the lakemaster map is probably the best.. but still quite disapointing. I would call Chisago my home lake. And I will say this.. they missed quite a few sunken islands on the lake.

      Hello Friends   Well it appears our dock company will not be able to lift our dock this season (Frazer Bay/Smart's Bay area) due to his lifting barge only being in this area first weekend in October and we like to keep the dock in until after MEA (this year ending October 21). Any suggestions? It's a pretty simple A Frame with a ladder and an L. I know I could do it myself, but have always preferred to have someone else do it.   Thanks for any insight

      The panfish tip above is a good tip for Webb. I grew up fishing that lake and I'd say good luck! I haven't caught anything worthwhile in the boat on Webb in years. Tips vary based on species, but the points are good and look for the "hidden treasures"

      Curious what that cost to have it surveyed if you don't mind sharing.

      Questions. Would you like something on a motor route. Stick to or fish smaller lakes. Travel distance. How many days.

      If you have an aluminum boat and open access to bottom of the hull, you can just set the transducer in a little puddle of water inside the boat.  The signal of a working unit will read just fine through the hull.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.
