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 love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
