Fish Lake ice (little moose)

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone been back towards the moose recently? Wondering how the ice is back there, thinking about heading that way tomorrow. We will be taking ATVs if the ice is good.

Happy Holidays!

I know theres a little creek that runs in from CWMA, other then that I'm not aware of any hazards.

There was a report of only 1" of ice in spots of moose a few weeks ago but it should be fine by now. Take your time and check the ice as always.

I did hear from the guys who have been back there that the bite isnt all that great yet.

Thanks for information guys.

We went out there today. We didn’t go all the way back to little moose. We fished a little north from there. Wasn’t too bad of a day but not a great day. We landed around 10 walleyes biggest 17". A few northerns 2 over 30 inches, and a hand full of perch and bluegills. It was a blast watching all the fish on the camera. We even saw a few largemouth down there. Best bait for us was chubs on a forage minnow and best depth was 12ft.

Ice was good; we found 9-10 inches. The only bad spot that we found was about 4 feet out from the landing at the dam.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
