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.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
