Tried a little bit of fishing on ericson over the weekend.I had a good time jiging for some blue gill.I almost go a really nice bluegill,but it got off my hook.I caught a small large mouth bass,and RELEASED IT.Over another fun weekend at ericson cant wait to fish for bass next weekend during open season.

Erickson never had much of a carp population- in fact I've never seen one in there. Bowfishing there - would have to be for bass- and I don't think that is legal (is it??)...
Many other ponds- enjoy- get em outta there! Just an FYI on Erickson! Cheers!

Didn't Walker pass a bill in 2013 saying that you can bowhunt (which I assume includes bowfishing) in local ordinances as long as you are 100 yards away from any building, unless otherwise granted permission. He also made it so local ordinances cannot put laws that further govern this into place, so you should be able to get away with bowfishing Erickson....

Oh and to bowfishing comments cancel that idea... considered a firearm in deforest and the cops will find and say something... personal experience i now cant bowfish any of these places... city ordinance

Maybe the lake can recooperate now... once ice fishing comes all these kids take every fish they catch ITS A TINY POND 5yrs from now there wont be anything worth going for... there barely is now good bass here and there sometimes u get lucky n catch a big gill lol, pike are becoming extinct, 10yrs ago it was prime, these "deforest ponds" shouldnt even be on this site... only gonna get worse glad i know some "private" places with BIG FISH but thats my secret

Been driving by Lake Erickson, I love this little lake and fish it all the time, but the water has been a neon green for over 2 weeks now. Am assuming some chemical to kill weeds- hope it didn't kill everything else. I would not eat any fish out of there unless you wanna glow. Anyone with info, please let em know what is going on- that is my summer get away. Hope it survives. Weeds ain't that bad... Good luck all

Yeah I have never been to the ponds behind the main pound behind timbers.I would like to fish ericson at this time of yeah,but largemouth and small mouth fishing ended march 6.So in my opion its praticaly worthless to fish at a bass pond when you cant get any bass.Plus the pike population is to low for me to fish them.Hope to try maybe some trought fishing this week.Its only cautch and relase for now till april 26 I think.It would also be helpful if any could help me find some trout because I dont really feel like hikeing the yahra river for hours on end to find some fish.Thanks-condor 500
