History & Status of the Fishery
Auburn Lake is a 261- acre lake, located near the town of Victoria in Carver County. Three Rivers Park District owns a large portion of the shoreline. A boat access, two fishing piers, and a beach are available within the park. As with other parks in this system, a fee is required to park vehicle-boat trailer combinations. The lake is composed of two distinct basins; the west basin reaches a maximum depth of 84 feet, and the east basin reaches a maximum depth of 34 feet. Auburn Lake is primarily managed for its largemouth bass and northern pike populations. The Minnesota state record largemouth bass was caught from Auburn Lake on October 5, 2005. The fish measured 23.5 inches, weighed 8 pounds 15 ounces, and had a girth of 18 inches.
Electrofishing during the spring targeted the largemouth bass population. While the average length of bass was only 11.7 inches, the largest bass measured 21.3 inches in length. Twenty-one percent of bass sampled were greater than 16 inches.
Northern pike were abundant during the summer population assessment. The number per gillnet was 14.8, well above the average of 3.8 for similar lakes. Twenty-five percent of northern pike sampled with gillnets were greater than 24 inches, with the largest fish measuring 29.9 inches.
The relative abundance of bluegill has increased from 53.1 fish per trap net in 2006 to 77.3 fish per trap net in 2012. This catch rate is well above average for this type of lake. Eighty-eight percent of trap-netted bluegill were between 6.0 and 7.0 inches, with the largest bluegill measuring 8.2 inches.
Black crappie were caught at a rate of 12.5 fish per gillnet, which is above average for this type of lake. The fish were on the small side, with the average fish measuring 6.7 inches and weighing 0.16 lbs. Only 9.6% of fish sampled were 8 inches or longer, with the largest crappie measuring 8.7 inches.
One walleye was sampled in a trapnet. It measured 19.7 inches and weighed 2.89 pounds. Planned or permitted stocking of walleye has not occurred in over 35 years; origin of this fish is unknown.
Other species sampled included black bullhead, bowfin, pumpkinseed sunfish, hybrids of sunfish species, and common carp.
