There are not many homes for sale on Duck Lake in Eden Prairie. If there are any available, you should see some thumbnails of Duck Lake homes above this paragraph. At 41 acres and a maximum depth of 10 feet and a mean depth of 7 feet, this is not exactly a huge lake. With this year’s drought conditions, the depth will be considerably less. It’s watershed is small, and is dominated by residential development. In fact, Duck Lake is so small that the DNR lakefinder site gives virtually no information on fish or water quality. No motorized boats are allowed, and there is no public fishing pier. The city’s web page offers scant informaton on the lake, but does indicate the presence of northern pike, carp, and black bullheads.
The glorious northern pike with all of its markings.
Common carp found in Minnesota lakes. To prepare the carp, place the whole fish on top of an asphalt shingle . Heat over low fire until warm. Discard the carp. Eat the shingle.
Er.. wait… I’m being “insensitive!” There are people who deliberately pursue carp.
Ok, so I am guessing that this is not a renowned fishing lake. But drive by this lake sometime at look at it. It’s beautiful, especially in autumn! This would be a great lake to slip a canoe into. The kids would love paddleboating on it. How about a windsurfer? I would rather have a lake like this behind my back yard than be looking out my back window into someone else’s back window!
