Pool 5 Water conditions

2 posts in this topic

Hey all

Anyone tell me what the water conditions are for pool 5? I know there was a lot of rain upstream in the Cities and for the Zumbro flowage. Wondering if I should look elsewhere for an outing this weekend

Thanks in advance for any info

Water conditions aren't too bad. The water is up a bit and chocolatey compared to early this year, but that isn't stopping the fish. The crappies are on the bite. Look for snags and deep weed lines just off the channel. There are a few walleyes still in the natural run and on the bend out in front of Minnieska ( Wis. side). Trolling raps and three ways are how I've been putting fish in the boat. You'll have plenty of competition out there, but there is definetly fish to be caught.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
