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

    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
    • What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
