south central water levels?

3 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the water levels are like on smaller ponds and sloughs relative to this time last year.

Way down from last year. Our wetland was about 3' deep last fall. This year there are a couple small, very shallow puddles left. July and early August were very dry and fall recharge has been hit and miss by areas. In much of Steele and southern Waseca Co.'s it's been miss. frown.gif

The sloughs I have look at this year I would say the bigger ones are down about 2-5in compared to last year. The small ones are about the same as the big ones or pretty much dry. This is in the Brown and Nicollet county area. Hope this helps.

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.

      There's a few really good cat spots in that stretch.  It won't be long and it will all be open.
