Collinwood?

5 posts in this topic

Anybody been to Collinwood lately? I haven't been there yet this year and was wondering how green the water is by now.

I have not been there either and usually would have made 5 trips. If its like the past years, green slime everywhere.

I tried it this morning. It's green, but doesn't have that slime yet....the stuff that hangs on your line and everything else. Just green and no big chunks of algae floating either, but it won't be long. It really wasn't that bad fishing in it today. Fish could have cooperated better, but the water didn't make it a hassle as far as cleaning your line, etc.

This lake is getting out of control, and i dont understand why people can help out to get it back to a cleaner lake. There is some great fishing in this lake, its just a matter of what the lake is going to look like when you go out there. I have been there at times, where you dont even want to get a line wet, becuase your reel is going to be junk when your done.

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
