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

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
