It's right along the minnesota river just upstream from ft. snelling state park. I honestly don't remember, but if you go and buy a map of nearby snelling lake, a gun club map is included on an insert.

Sorry, I can't help you. I know sometimes (in case you didn't know) if you use the recreation compass and change the view of the map to TOPO, some lakes that aren't listed on DNR's website will give a generic depth of the lake.

I am familiar with this lake. It has tons of monster carp if that's what your looking for. Occasional nice bass, small pike and pannies. You never know what you'll catch.

During heavy raining seasons the walter quality of the lake can decrease due to flooding from the Minnesota river which also brings in multispecies.

Lotsa snakes and wildlife. Mostly shallow areas for wetlands. It's almost unfishable during the summer due to heavy aquatic weed growths & milfoil. Spring & fall are your best times.

If you want a lake infested with Carp try Cynthia Lake in Lakeville/Burnsville area.

I am also familar with this lake. The whole lake is around 3-4 feet deep except around the creek mouth. You might get 8 feet in spots there depending on the water levels. It is full of carp though. Andy is right, by June it is a jungle. This lake has been abused over the years and is not really a decent fishing at all anymore.

by the looks of the original posters name, I'm guessing he wants the carp. In fact, until bass opens I may have to go check this place out. crazy.gif

Yeah the place is good for Carp in the late spring & summer. Also Sheephead too & dogfish.

The lake has poor access & parking and you have to walk half a mile or more just to get to it. Again lotsa wildlife cause its a wetland area. Watch out for the bugs, mosquitos & ticks.

There's alot of garbage in certain areas lately from people who dont pick up after themselves. Its sad because it making the shores & area filthy.

Unless your feeling adventurous I would avoid it. Go fish Snelling Lake instead across the river at Snelling state park.

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!
