Fishing in Dutch Lake
Dutch Lake Hennepin County fishing forecast
This lake experiences occasional winterkills, Although the water clarity is 2.3 feet, the DNR does not recommend any restrictions on fish consumption on the basis of measured contaminants. There is a hardy population of northern pike that are above-average in size. However, DNR gill net samples yielded 41% bullhead; bullhead species included black, yellow, and brown.
If you like catching pike, try the weedlines in the spring. You will also find that there are plenty of panfish there as well. Northerns and crappies will go for the minnows, and the bass will go for black plastic worms. As the summer wears on, fish deeper. For pike, try a shiner on a slip bobber at about ten feet.
