Trout fishing near Walker?

7 posts in this topic

Hi everyone. I am headed up to northern Minnesota (Laporte/Walker area) at the end of this week. I was wondering if there are any trout streams or lakes in the area. I typically fly fish for bass and pike on my Minnesota trips, but wanted a little change of pace this year. Any tips/direction would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Try the Kabekona River near LaPorte for brookies. Send me a quick email at ginner26@gmail.com and I can get you a few more details. I was up there in July and had a little luck.

The first post mentioned Diamond lake. I found that one about 4 or 5 years ago. I just went up there about 3 to 4 weeks ago. and got a few trout. ive only been there about 4 times. but on dnr lake finder its the most stocked lake up there. You will need a little guidenss. You can stop at the BP by northern lights or get some before you get there. heres the directions. On 371 shortly after you pass Hackensack youll see the lower 10 mile lake sign keep going straight on 371 then you will see the sign for upper 10 mile as soon as you see that sign look on your right side of the road for woodtick rd. this will be a dirt road once you get all the way on it. the lake is 4.7 miles back down the dirt road. but will seem farther. theres one catch you have to make one left turn and there are a couple roads that connect. just go to where its a four way the only four way on the road an make a left and go about a mile an a half to two and you will dead and at the lake. the four way is not a even four way but you can tell you could go four ways. It was hot when I was up there so I wasnt getting them like I have when it is cooler. But did manage a few. Good Luck. If you go let us know how you did

Teepee and Hazel were always pretty good. I would call the Walker fisheries office and find out how many fish got stocked where. I think one of their designated trout lakes is getting chemically reclaimed this fall after someone released some game fish that took off. Might want to avoid that one smile

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
