They are doing repairs to the dam. It seems that there was a hole in the wall. If they didn't fix it they thought it might blow.

Just head up highway 169 north, I'ts about 5-6 miles out of town but be sure to go on the right hand side of the road not the left, the right side has the river and the left side has the creek. You cant miss the green info signs, you may want to also try the LeSueur river south of town. BT

45 degrees surface temp is about right for when Walleyes put on the feed bag for winter.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
