About The Lake
At 3,000 acres, Waconia is the Twin Cities’ second biggest lake. Waconia is home to 2012’s Governors Fishing Opener and leagues of extraordinary fish.
Features: large island, regional park with swimming beach, large public access, golf course, restaurants, shopping, lodging.
Fish include: Walleye, Musky, Perch, Crappie, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth bass, Bluegill
According to lake-link.com, “Lake Waconia is primarily managed for Walleye (special regulation: 16 inch minimum length) and Muskellunge. It is one of only two lakes in the DNR West Metro Fisheries Area (the other being Lake Minnetonka) that have had evidence of Walleye natural reproduction. Amounts and consistency have been insufficient to produce a steady, desirable walleye fishery. Since 2015, Muskellunge fingerlings (830 fish) are stocked annually in the fall. Walleye have recently been stocked in a cycle of three out of four years with fry (830,000 fish), and the fourth year with fingerlings (1,660 pounds). Results from the 2016 survey indicated this Walleye stocking plan may not be maximizing the return. Beginning in 2017, Lake Waconia will be fingerling-stocked at 1 pound per littoral acre (1,660 pounds) biennially. Secondarily managed species in Waconia include Largemouth Bass and Bluegill. Lake Waconia supports other game fish including Black Crappie and Yellow Perch.” For more that article, click here.
