Comments: Casey Lake is shallow but can provide some fun shorefishing action for the panfish that are annually stocked into this lake. While fishing, enjoy the beautiful shoreline restoration that was constructed along the edge of the lake to help intercept nutrients in runoff before they enter the lake. The Ramsey Washington Metro Watershed District and the University of Minnesota are working on a project to eliminate Common Carp from Casey Lake which should help improve water quality in this lake and in downstream lakes such as Kohlman and Gervais.
NOTICE: A winterkill has occurred on Casey Lake with dead Bluegill and Largemouth Bass observed. FiN will be re-stocking this lake with Bluegill to provide fishing opportunities this summer.
