5 posts in this topic

I'd like to know about the status of the islands in these two resevoirs. I've seem duckblinds, houses, docks, and BWCA type camps on the scattered islands. Who owns these islands? What's the protocol? Can Mr. or Mrs. Anywhominnesota person camp on the uninhabited islands?

There are a few that are priviate. Most are public. Most of the campsites you find are available to anyone. If you have any questions about specific islands you can check with Minnesota Power's land management website.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
