Fish Lake water level

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering if the water level has come up in the last week at all. I was there last Saturday (10-13-07) and it was the lowest I've ever seen it. shocked.gif

I was there last weekend and yesterday as well. Water level is still really low, just as low as last weekend. MN Power must be keeping the d-a-m wide open and letting tons of water out.

Any idea why? I can't imagine there isn't enough water now.

Just back back from Fish Lake. Water levels are up quite a bit from a month ago but still down over all. Its just high enough where some of the stumps and rocks that you could see easily before are just at or just under the water. Be careful running in areas ya dont know.

Crappies/eyes were very slow for us. Others did a little better but from talking to several people its a "should have been here yesterday" deals. Sounds like with the nice weather and sun the fishing was much better yesterday.

Dams were open to keep some of the upper river areas from flooding out. Some small roads were begining to loosen up and some actually let loose on the shoulders etc. We got a lot of rain in a small amount of time and everything is saturated pretty good.

The St. Louis River is high now and really moving and with muck and debry.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
