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.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
