greenlake dam

3 posts in this topic

watching television last night i see where the congress has passed legislation to care for several hundred dams. now would be a good time for the study on green lake were it goes into calhoun that was done many years ago. might be the time for local county stateand federal politicians to take their stance on this project. in a few years all the lakes up and down stream would benefit? they could all benefit by having a steady water depth, even when the rain dont fall? would be interasted in any coments? castindad

I dont quite understand? The dam on Calhoune holds Green lake back already,maybe 4-5 ft.There's 2 dams one on Calhoune and one on the Crow river.

Was'nt it within the last 8-10 years the DNR and fed. Gov. Deceided it was best to eradicate dams restricting fish movements And the silting problems associated with dams? A number of Mn. dams have been removed because of that deceision.I dont think removing the dams on Calhoune and the river would go over very well with Green lake owners

SPACEBAG MAYBE YOU MISUNDER STOOD ME I THINK IT WOULD BE ADVISABLE TO HAVE A CONTROL DAM THAT WOULD REGULATE THE WATER DEPTH IN ALL THREE LAKES AND DOWN THE LINE MY THINKIN IS THAT THE DEPTHS WOULD REMAIN ALMOST THE SAME? IT MAY TAKE A WHILE? JUST MY OPINION CASTINDAD

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
