Been a few weeks...how thick is the ice on Fosters? Can I get two holes drilled with a hand auger before I lose conciousness? ha ha ha

I wouldn't think it would be that bad.

Is there still any trout left out there? My cousin lives near by and wants me to take him fishing this weekend. So I am heading down from the cities to fish somewhere in Rochester, we may end up fishing a few lakes this weekend.

There's always a few trout in Fosters. Hitting it prime-time will help your chances.

Is there a consistent prime time? Morning?

Morning seems to be the best but once you pattern the trout all day is prime time. Plus where getting close to march and that is the prime trout month.

Trout lakes are different regulations from the streams....fosters is a put and take lake that is open year round for people to fish. Fish whenever ya want and keep if ya want within your regs.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.

      Great review Rick G! I've always been all for Gas augers but it seems seems electric is better than I think it is. I could defiantly see myself making the move in the near future.
