Volney

4 posts in this topic

I just though I should say thank you to all who put time in to cleaning up Lake Volney. It is very quickly becomming the clearist lake in this part of the state once again. I could almost swear from one week to the next I can see anouther foot deeper. Thanks again!

I believe that everyone who lives on Volney also belongs to the Lake Volney Association for which they pay dues to help with clean up efforts. One thing that was done last year was that the DNR dumped a bunch of carbon in the lake to help control the algae bloom paid for by the association, for which we are seeing the effects of more this year.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
