OPEN WATER

5 posts in this topic

I am just wondering if there is any open water out on the river this time of year and if it can be accesses with a boat. I heard one time that there is open water year round by redwing because of the nuc plant. Don't know if that is true or not. Just wondering if it is possible to get out there yet. thanks for your time in reading my post. ike

ikeslayer, I was just looking into this and I contacted Evert's Resort near Redwing and they told me they have open water and they keep their ramps open 365 days a year. I am buying a boat and was trying to find a place to water test it so I will be going there as soon as possible. Ramp fee is $7.00 by the way.

Ike,

FM won't allow it to be posted. You should be able to do a search though and find it.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
