I know of a couple of fish in the 40s coming out of the St. Peter area. Not on my line but friends of mine have been doin well. They were biting very light just pickin up the bait and sittin on it, last week. This week with having some nicer days the fish have gotten alittle more aggressive.

This weekend should be great if the weather holds.

Fished yesterday morning with dad, eyes weren't where i expect them to be, so we shifted gears, pulled into a back water stretch down from Minnecon Park ( The Cut for those of you who know the area ) And fished with minnows or nightcrawlers under bobbers. Dad was hoping for carp so he threw on a crawler, I thought maybe there is still some 'eyes back here and put on a minnow. 5 mins later we were both getting bites, then we started pulling in channel cats, 1-3 lbers, we caught 8 in all and one big sheepie. Wasn't what the trip was intended for, but still a good time.

Nothing huge, but I ended up with 7 catfish for Fri and Sat nights. Unfortunately nothing over 25 pounds. Maybe next weekend. Here are the highlights.

      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.
