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!

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
