Lake Details

Summary

What you need to know about fishing Lake Waconia

Lake Waconia is the second largest lake in the metro area, only behind Lake Minnetonka, and is a popular ice fishing destination for Walleye, Northern Pike, and Crappie. Walleyes are often found around deep rock or transitional areas, typically caught using shiner minnows or a fluttering spoon. Northern Pike are the other toothy species anglers target. Grass beds near basin areas are hotspots for tip up anglers. Crappies roam the basins of Lake Waconia and because of the relatively low water clarity glowing tungsten jigs, tipped with a wax worm or plastic, often produce great numbers and size for Twin-Cities area crappies.
