HISTORY AND STATUS OF FISHERY


Crooked Lake (DOW# 11-0494; Lake Class 27) is a 565-acre lake located near Wilkinson, MN.
Crooked Lake is accessible via a navigable channel between Crooked Lake and Welsh Lake. There is a DNR-owned public access on the east shore of Welsh Lake. Crooked Lake has 3.65 miles of shoreline and a maximum depth of 74 feet. The DNR has classified Minnesota's lakes into 43 different classes based on physical, chemical and other characteristics. Crooked Lake is in Lake Class 27; lakes in this class are large, deep, and regularly shaped.

Northern Pike are moderately abundant in Crooked Lake and catch rates tend to range between 6-10 fish per gill net, although sizes sampled in 2015 were smaller compared to past surveys. Northern Pike up to 30 inches were sampled. Walleye numbers have been relatively stable, with around five fish per net. Walleye sampled in 2015 ranged from 9 to 27 inches, and many of these were between 14 and 20 inches long. Bluegill and Black Crappie can also provide additional quality fishing opportunities to anglers, with Bluegill over 8 inches and Black Crappie over 13inches sampled. Other fish species that anglers can expect to encounter include Brown Bullhead, Burbot, Bowfin (Dogfish), Largemouth Bass, Pumpkinseed, Rock Bass, Tullibee (Cisco), Yellow Bullhead, and Yellow Perch.

People can have significant impacts on lakes and the fish populations they support. Harvest, lakeshore development, removal of shoreline vegetation, and introductions of invasive species can all adversely affect fish populations. No aquatic invasive species have been identified in Crooked Lake. AIS (aquatic invasive species) are moved from infested to non-infested waters by anglers, boaters, and lake shore owners and can adversely impact lakes and fish populations. To avoid spreading AIS, lake users are required to remove all aquatic plants or animals from their watercraft and drain all water from their boat before leaving the access. If you suspect an infestation of an invasive species in this lake, save a specimen and report it to a local natural resource office. Additional information on all of these topics can be found on the DNR website (www.dnr.state.mn.us) or by contacting the Walker Area Fisheries office.
