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.

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
