We want to thank everyone for a great winter on Lake Waconia! We will be closing for the season after this Sunday, 3/3/19. We are done renting Fish Houses after this Wednesday, 2/27/19.
We will do our best to keep our lake road open past Center Reef and to Pillsbury Reef through 3/3 (we will not be servicing the road to Cemetery Reef). However, there is continued measurable snow forecasted on Friday with increasing wind on Saturday. Because our road is already very narrow in many areas, we cannot guarantee that it will be easy to navigate after more snow and wind. Therefore, since fish houses must be removed by Monday, 3/4/19 anyway, those with houses on Lake Waconia that use the road we plow, should consider removing it before more snow comes while we have a good road open. After Sunday 3/3, we will not be maintaining the lake road.
For those coming to the lake to fish, remember that the Gamefish Season (Bass, Northern and Walleyes) is now closed as of last Sunday 2/24/19. Also, we now have new 2019 Fishing Licenses available for purchase through our closing date on the 3rd. We have seen a continued good sunfish and crappie bite fishing in the weeds or on weed edges in 10 to 15 feet of water. Sunfish have been good all day, with crappies best between 6 to 9 pm. While there are plenty of smaller fish being caught, there are enough keepers mixed in to make the frying pan!
