Mayfly hatch!

4 posts in this topic

There was a very large mayfly hatch in Pike Bay the last two nights! tongue.gif

The Big Bay area will probably be next! Probably within the next week or two if the weather stays warm.

Cliff,

is there any rule of thumb when a bug hatch occurs on Trout Lake compared to Vermilion? We are headed into Trout Next Wednesday morning for 5 days. We will probably hit Oriniack, Pine, and Little Trout as well. I would imagine Pine probably has an earlier bug hatch due to its shallow depth.

Thanks,

WG

I doubt if Trout is even close to being warm enough for a bug hatch anytime soon.

The other lake may certainly have hatches though!

I like to use a lindy and 1/2 crawler or gold spinners and a crawler during bug hatches.

Cliff, when I mowed on Saturday afternoon, I was on the shade side of the cabin, went into the bush to grab some trash laying there, when I came out I thought the little buggers were going to carry me away. I had sprouted wings in no time flat. Later Darrell.

ps: The onions did not seem to matter later on.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.

      I looked at cook, mn page didn't see the story.  both webpage   cookmn.com and the facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CookMn/ and the cook group   https://www.facebook.com/groups/396154887224760/ Not on Timberjay site either.     You can post a link by just copy/and paste the url from the bar in your browser into your post.
