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

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
