Pool 2

3 posts in this topic

Been quiet in here lately...fairly new to the Pool 2 area, but got a boat 'bout a month back, and plan on spending some time getting to know pool 2.

Was out on Saturday for the maiden voyage between Lilydale, and Ford dam. She was a flowing. Didn't have much luck. Caught a small "jack" fish (northern), and had what felt like a walleye or sauger on (could have been a sheepie), but it got off. Otherwise pretty dismal. Being new to boat fishing the river and the state of the river, kind of expected it. Was wondering if others had any luck, or if it was just my bad luck.

Out of two boats of us fishing, the only other fish that was caught was a carp on a fly rod. I was jealous.

Take care.

Marc

I was also out saturday. The water level is rising and the flow was pretty heavy. I only ended up with one walleye. A nice fat 25 incher.

Nice fish Oly. The conditions are sure different now than last fall. I hope to get down there a few times in november hitting some wing dams.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
