Fishing At Lake Minnewaska
AKA: Minnewaska Lake
What to fish for...
Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, black crappie, walleye, bluegill, hybrid sunfish, pumpkinseed sunfish and yellow perch at Lake Minnewaska in Minnesota.
A popular destination for boating and boat parties in summer, Lake Minnewaska is also an excellent fishing lake, year round. This is a 7,100-acre lake in the central part of the state, at Glenwood, with more than eighteen miles of shoreline. Anglers regularly catch nice stringers of walleye, bass, crappie, sunfish and perch. Both largemouth and smallmouth bass are the warm weather favorites, while walleye and perch are the main targets when ice fishing in winter. Boating access is via a boat launch ramp at Eagles Point in the northern tip of the lake, a boat landing in the eastern corner of the lake off East 1st Street, and at Glenwood Boat Ramp on the east side of the lake.
