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.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
