Just wondering if anyone has fished or fishes Cenaiko Lake this time of the year. And how do you do? The lake is within the Coons Rapid Dam Regional Park. I know that it is a designated trout lake which is pretty cool being within city limits. I've caught some crappie out of it while fishing for trout there a few years ago with one being almost 10 inches. But havent been fishing it lately so just wondering if anyone has any reports on it.
Cenaiko is a designated trout lake. Fishing is allowed only during the trout season, in addition to other restrictions. Refer to the Minnesota Fishing Regulations booklet for the additional restrictions.
This lake is within Coon Rapids Regional Park. A fee is charged to enter the park. Smallmouth bass, hybrid sunfish and other fish present were introduced by anglers illegally. Do not put fish caught in the adjacent Mississippi River into the lake as any additional fish stocked may reduce the success of trout stocking.
so this means that it can be fished rite? sometimes these things can be hard to understand...and yes there are some nice crappies in there. and yes ive been fortunate enough to pull some nice smallies from there too...i have a few pics but cant figure how to post them...
You are correct it can be fished this year from 1/15 to 3/31. Main resriction's are one line only and you need a trout stamp no matter what you are fishing for. No live bait either There is a sign that has all resrictions
The ranger's there are whack!! Last spring (09) me and a buddy of mine where told that you could fish there for crappies so we went. we usually fish large mouths. there where other people fishing there too. We weren't sure if there was regulations on the lake so I flagged the ranger down. He totally ignored me (i was in a yellow jacket too) So we cast into the lake, as soon as we did that he turn his car around and busted us for fishing a closed trout pond. Got fined $165, that ranger was a ****. nobody else on the lake fishing was fined, as soon as he wrote us up he left the park with us tailgating him out.
