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.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
