I watched a guy tipup fish where the creek that runs behind silver lake pool meets the zumbro. He had one in the mouth of the channel and one along the bank. He had two northerns on the ice. The one looked nice sized. Watch the ice over there. He said it gets real unstable fast.

No it was two three years ago. But I caught 3 northerns last spring on the creek that runs behind silver lake pool. They will swim up that stream in the spring at first ice out. I interned one year with the park and rec. I worked around Silver lake alot. So I picked up a few hot spots. Plus in front of the fire hall is really good. If you want to catch some huge white crappies east side of the walking bridge by the fire hall. cast out to the first support beam, there was some brush around it. Me and my buddy hit that four five times when fishing was slow. We caught alot of 10inchers. I was told of all sorts of holes. Plus what i,ve seen caught out of that lake. I seen a kid catch a 16 inch and 12 inch waleye below the dam. Seen guys catch catfish down there also. Theres is tons of fish around there it is a fun place to fish.

I have fished quite a bit below the dam and have done some carp fishing above the dam in the lake. But have never targeted the pike out there.

Yup sounds right you got to hit that creek at ice out the northern are all over in there. But they are not agressive at all you have to hit them in the nose to get them to bite. Seems weird catching northerns there but heck I've caught northerns out by Hayfeild, Simpson, and Rock Dell. So why not there.

Yeah, all the frozen sewage will float downstream before it can settle in the lake!!

Be fair the sewage plant is after Silver Lake!

On a side note. How about them Packers.

I broke my voicebox yelling for joy when the Giants finally made that last field goal. I'll be hoarse tomorrow!

Let's hope little Bertie Favre retires and his last-ever play from scrimmage was the interception that cost them a Super Bowl berth.

Now we have to listen to months of him toying with people over whether he'll retire or not.

As to the thread topic, I thought the sewage plant was up by 37th St NW. Is there another one closer to Silver Lake that I'm not aware of??

Well I would have figured the sewage statement to be true if you where talking about lake zumbro plenty of sewage has flowed threw that channel.

      People falling through the ice on local lakes today: http://www.brainerddispatch.com/video/agfmkDlh

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.
