buzzsaw, yes the water levels are in the normal range for this time of the year. They have started to rise as the snow melt is about complete and there is quite a bit of run off. Expecting rain this weekend or the first part of the week so things should continue to rise. Talking with folks on the Ash River most of the river so now free of ice. Looks like a normal spring ice out here. Get fired up for those spring eyes. Fishkab

Buzzsaw, looks like an early ice out for this year, with as they mentioned normal to above normal levels at opener.

Usually if the ice goes out early, like a couple of weeks or so before opener, the water warms up nicely and fishing is on the good side, along with the possibility of some crappie fishing. If the water is considerably warmer that normal on opener, it could be a jackpot for some nice smallies. Dust off the tackle boxes, tie up some snells and get ready. guts

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL
