If you're talking Rush Lake near Ottertail, that is is a pretty nice lake! They have been stalking fry in that lake for the past several years, the latest being 100,000 in 2010. Rush Lake is a popular angling lake during both the open water and ice fishing seasons. The lake has a reputation as one of the best all-around fishing lakes in Otter Tail County. Northern pike, walleye, largemouth bass, black crappie, and bluegill are the dominant species in the fish community of Rush Lake. The prolificacy of these species can be attributed to the abundance of suitable spawning habitat that is available. Walleye is a primary management specie in Rush Lake. Walleye abundance has historically been high. Walleyes ranged in length from 7.5 to 28.0 inches with an average length and weight of 13.4 inches and 0.9 pounds. This is a great lake and I would recommend it for anyone lookibg for some good action... So what am I saying? Might want to abandon the crappie thing and go for some 'eyes!
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
