Barrett Lake

3 posts in this topic

I was on Barrett Lake at Barrett this summer visiting a friend who rented a cabin at the resort there. Never got on the water but I wonder if anyone has fished the lake? What is it like? I was told it was fairly deep? What fish are in there? Is it any good for ice fishing?

It's dirty, not that deep it gets to about 25'. Try DNR's lakefinder Barret Lake in Grant county. Lot's of rough fish but a good lake for walleye opener.

"The river transports excessive nutrients and sediment from its large and predominately agricultural watershed. Water quality and clarity in Barrett Lake are strongly influenced by river flows and climatic conditions. The lake is susceptible to intense algal blooms during summer months. Hot weather, calm winds, and low flow conditions in the river tend to trigger these algal blooms. Secchi clarity during the 2005 survey was 4.5 feet." From DNR's Lakefinder.

Kobear: Thanks for the info. It sounds like a sewer instead of a lake. I hate it when the water quality goes that way. Its too bad!
