Ice/Water Report??

6 posts in this topic

Greetings. Looking for an ice report as of today on Leech Lake (Thursday 4/14). Main lake vs Walker Bay? How is it looking? I am going up this weekend for a late-ice perch run OR a dock-in float the boat opening of the cabin. Would appreciate knowing what to pack! Other lakes in the area open yet? Thanks in advance. I'll post when I return on Tuesday AM.

I drove by Walker bay last night and most all of the bay still had ice. It looked to be away from shore somewhat, but alot of ice. From what I could see there may have been open water but it was hard to tell from where I was. It fairly windy and warm today, so who knows the ice may break, but I doubt it. I know most of the smaller lakes just south of Walker are open, but not sure to the north. Hope thats helps.

Anyone else? I did call up today and learned that Walker Bay was frozen as of Thur at noon. Small lakes near walker? Main lake? Thanks.

I came home from Walker today April 16, the ice was gone from Kabekona Bay ( a few floating pieces only) and the ice will be gone soon on the big lake. Hard to say, depends on rain wind.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
