Wassermann Lake is located near the southwest corner in the city of Victoria Minnesota which is in Carver County. Its bowl shape covers about 170 acres and is surrounded mostly by a small row of deciduous forest that cover about three quarters of the shoreline. Wassermann Lake reaches a maximum depth of 40 feet, (which is deeper than nearby Lake Waconia). Its depth are sustainable for a variety of fishery habitat including muskies, bass, perch, crappie, sunfish, black bullhead, bluegill, brown bullhead, green Sunfish, largemouth bass, northern pike, pumpkinseed, walleye, white bass, yellow bullhead and yellow Perch. Wassermann Lake is part of the 6 Mile Creek Sub-watershed within the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District. Its waters flow through Auburn Lake and Parley Lake eventually reaching Halsteds Bay within the Upper Lake Minnetonka system. Unfortunately, for all its beauty, Wassermann Lake is also impaired. Its phosphorous content is twice the designated maximum level. Although the introduction of additional phosphorous is now modest, dissolved levels remain perpetually high, resulting from repeated disturbance of the lake bed by an army of carp, which yet thrive in the deteriorated waters produced by their overabundance. Rafts of milfoil and algae blooms are constant and intensify in mid and late summer. Wassermann is an impaired lake, not suitable for general recreation due to excessive pollutant levels as determined by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.
