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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
