Mid March trip advice

7 posts in this topic

Situation-

A couple of buddies and myself are looking to plan a mid-march trip up to LOW. We'd like to do a couple days/nights in a sleeper during the week. I am not very familiar with the area, and wading through all of the reports, ads, etc online is more frustrating than anything. Was wondering if anyone has any advice. Basically how the fishing typically is then, where should we head and maybe even who we should rent from.

Thanks for any help. aadey402@uwsp.edu is my email if you want to name an outfit to go through.

Click on the Riverbend Link on top of the Lake of the Woods forum and email them. I used them in January and am using them again in March. You might want to re evauluate using a daytime house and spend the evening in the resort. If it is only two of you going th price will be similar however it is a lot more comfortable. Lake of the Woods does not give up a lot of fish at night.

Mid to late March can be awesome on the big water. I am headedd back for the 8th year in late March and have always had great fishing. I try to make 4 trips a year and this is one of my favorites. Riverbend has been our resort of choice and we have no complaints. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Thanks for the advice and emails everybody. I was reading the regs and though I understand the different regs, I'm not familiar with the lake enough to know the different areas(I've been on the rainy but that's it). Are either Zipple or Riverbend on areas that have special regs other than the 8 eye/sauger mix?

Just the 30 to 40 inch Pike safe slot. No slot on Saugers.

19.5 to 28 Walleyes must be released. You can clean Walleyes in

the fish house to eat, but not the entire catch.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
