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

      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
