Split Rock Reservoir winterkill?

4 posts in this topic

I heard that it winterkilled. Has anyone been there recently? That would really be too bad if that little lake froze out because it was one of few lakes in that area, and was a great lake to catch some crappie and the occasional nice walleye. Every year that I can remember it has had an aerator on it, but from what I heard(and you know how that goes) the park ranger didn't "get around to arranging it this year"

They reported on the KLOH fishing report a couple of weeks ago that it was deader than snot. That is too bad.

If you got to pipestonestar.com there is a story about it from Feb 20.

I read the article on pipestonestar.com.

It sounds like some weak and flimsy excuses from Park management.

Next year they want voluteers to do the O2 monitoring and watch the aereator? What were they doing all winter? It hasn't snowed in two months.

Sounds like the advisory board has some work to do.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
