As far as the depth of Fountain goes the lake is pretty much a bowl with the deepest water just south of the narrows. Max depth 10'. I don't know much about the fishing besides that there are plenty of bullheads, its a safe bet there are better lakes lakes close to Montrose. One that comes to mind would be Crawford Lake. It has special fishing regs for walleye (2 fish daily) largemouth bass (catch and release only) sunfish and crappie (5 each daily) and perch (10 fish daily. Crawford was also stocked with channel cattfish to help control the bullhead population. Otherwise there is always Buffalo Lake for walleyes and crappie, just be prepared for the crowds. Good Luck

Follow 25 north, 1.95 miles to 40th street( its the road going east just north of the crow river bridge), go east( right turn) about 1/2 mile. You should see a sign for public access on the road.

You turn left the road will go straight to the lake. Good luck

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
