Lake Darling

4 posts in this topic

I'm heading up to Darling on Sat. for a week and I was wondering if anybody had any reports . We usually troll for pike but I'd like to find a spot for eyes or panfish. Also is the water level to low to get back to Lake Alvin?? any help would be great thanks.

The water levels on Darling remain low. I'm not sure on the status of the channel to Alvin, but there's always a sand bar on the Darling side anyways which makes it challenging. Alvin gets pretty weedy and warm by August so you are better off fishing Darling for northerns. The sunfish bite on Darling has been decent lately, and the bass remain active in a little deeper water. Try drifting the flats for sunnies and the occasional bass/northern.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
