Reservoir Dawg

Silver Creek

1 post in this topic

I was driving by Silver creek reservoir yesterday and I saw a boat out there.From what it looked like somebody had someone drop them off by the creek and I guess they'd just call when they were ready to be picked up.

I can't condem them for being out there, for the thought of doing what they did has crossed my mind.I can understand both sides of this controversy.If I lived in Haverhill Township I would be reluctant to open up the Res for fishing,there's always going to be some slob who won't respect the property.On the other hand we have a limited amount of areas like this to fish.

Oh well, prior to 1997 we did not have Chester Woods,Gamehaven or Willow Creek and coming soon Cascade Lake.Maybe if we are patient those wonderful but, stubborn people of Irish Ridge will realise not all fisherman are slobs some of us even pick up after those who are.

Good luck

      Just doesn't seem like walleye territory to me. Spring crappies and great bass fishing on that arm.

      Thank you for the response!  Too mucky over there for the walleyes you think?

      Cliff's point about the spawn are true, more Walleyes spawn out in the basin and in other locations on the lake than in Pike bay which represents about 5% of the total eastern basin spawn. That means that all of the spawning Walleyes on the west end are unaffected by the hatchery on Pike bay.  Years of over fishing and stocking freezers has had more effect on Walleyes on the west end than the Pike river hatchery has. The DNR test nets in the fall showed Walleye on Lake Vermilion are well over the state average on both ends of the lake and the numbers have improved on the west end over the last few years. So don't blame the DNR if you are struggling to catch Walleyes. Stop fishing your memories and try something new, either location or presentation, because the fish are there.  I have been fishing Vermilion for almost 50 years now and in my humble opinion the Walleye fishing has never been better than it is right now. Ad to that a world class Muskie fishery, giant Pike, excellent Bass fishing (Both species) jumbo Perch, panfish and the shear Beauty of Lake Vermilion. What is there to complain about?  Count your blessing Vermilion anglers because it doesn't get any better than this. JMHO.
