Buck's Mill Pond

4 posts in this topic

Was looking at old stocking data and saw the DL DNR did three years of fingerling muskie stocking in Buck's Mill Pond from 1998-2000. Anyone know what the point of that was? Rearing pond or hoping they would go downstream into Pelican?

Well, I should spend less time lurking here and more time forecasting the best day for my final week of MN fishing the 16th before I start sitting in a tree with my boys down here.

The story on Buck's Mill Pond is that the DNR puts in several hundred to thousands of Leech strain fingerlings each year, then drains the lake in mid October and those fish are used for stocking. Sometimes for DL area lakes but could be anywhere in state that stocking fish are needed.

Been driving by this for a lifetime and had no idea.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
