Lake Waconia Fishing Report and 4th of July Activities - 7/2/15

The 4th of July is almost upon us, and Waconia is booming with the Taste of Minnesota here through the 5th, as well as the Lake Waconia Fireworks show which will be occurring on 7/4 at 10 pm from the Lake Waconia Regional Park on the southeast side of the lake. Stop in to say hi and pick up a snack or last minute item while you go boating to watch the show! Also, the Taste of Minnesota will have fireworks on 7/2, 7/3 and 7/4 at 10:20 from the Carver County Fairgrounds grandstand. Lots of activity and road construction, so check here to see where it’s closed and how to get to town…

With the beautiful weather, the lake has been warming up nicely! Water temps are now in the upper 70’s, so it’s very comfortable for all of your summer water activities. Take advantage of this wonderful weather pattern we’ve been in, and join us on the lake! If you don’t have a way to get on the water, rent a fishing boat or pontoon from us! Call (952) 442-2096 for information and to make a reservation.

While the water temps are higher, the fishing action has stayed strong on Lake Waconia. Sunfish and crappies are still biting best. Fishing between 8 to 14 feet of water with crappie minnows and waxies or crawlers has been the ticket. Areas like Center Reef, Pillsbury Reef and North Reef have been very good. Also, fishing the weeds around the island has been productive. Bass have bitten well in these areas as well, so don’t be shocked to get a lunker on the line!

Walleyes are starting to bite a little deeper now, although we continue to hear of catches in less than 10 feet too in the early morning hours. We’ve had reports of good success in 14 to 22 feet of water by Keg’s Reef, North Reef, Red’s Reef and the east side of the island. Fatheads are still the bait of choice, although it never hurts to have a large or jumbo leech or night crawlers with.

We hope you have a safe and fun-filled 4th of July! We’ll see you at the lake!
