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.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
