My family and I are looking at going to the alex area the first week of June. I am not familiar with the area so does anyone have any advice on a good lake that will keep my wife, 7 and 5 year old busy catching fish? Preferably nice size panfish. I heard Lake Darling, Lake Carlos or Osakis are good ones. Also am looking for a good resort. Thanks so much!

Viking Bay Resort on Lake Miltona is what I would recommend. We go there every August and just hammer the panfish. The resort has a great beach with a sandy swimming area, just great for kids. I don't work for them so I am not advertising, I am just telling about my great experience. The great bonus is that after dark if you want you can hit the flats for some bonus walleye fishing. Just my 2 cents

Been spending the last few years on the chain, good panfish action at that time of year. Bergs resort on Le Homme Dieu is where we stay, close to town too.

I would recommend Woodand resort on Miltona. They have great cabins and a super beach. The kids can catch panfish right off the dock.

The Chain being (Darling and Carlos) Both have Multiple Resorts on them! It all depends on what you want! if you want to rent a cabin or a room and Such! Also Osakis does have some very nice resorts and the big panfish can be caught on that lake! All Of them would be good choices.

Depending on what you want...Lake Amelia, about 20 miles from Alex is pretty laid back. Clean lake...only 1 resort on the lake.

      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.
