Wall Lake info.

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys, Planning on coming up to look at a place on wall lake but its on the south end of the lake and there seems to be some sort of channel that seperates it from the bigger north end. Dnr report says something about unnavigable? Anyone have any idea what this is all about?

Any more info in general about this lake would be greatly appreciated such as how green / algea bloom it gets in the summer for swimming or what the rec. traffic is like etc.

thanks, iron_cowboy_69@yahoo.com

Lived darn near on that lake a whole summer...fished it almost daily.

The north/south parts are navigable. To the far west shoreline, off the end of a long, shallow underwater point there is a section where boats can get thru. Go slow. grin.gif

South end is deeper with not much structure, stiff drop offs along shore.

I don't recall much of an algae bloom in the lake, however, I can't rule it out.

It's a nice lake. Swam in it many times. Traffic wise, not horrible...

Not too much for sandy shorelines if that's your thing. The long submerged point that is between the north and south end is a nice spot to swim. There are homes with swimming beaches but just as many that are a bit weedy and mucky. It can have a bloom happen but since the septics around the lake were updated it seems to have improved water quality.

Fishing can be OK. Kinda like most lakes that size, when it's hot it gets pounded and takes a few years to rebound. Recreational traffic on the lake is not awful but can be busy on weekends. All in all, a nice lake with a good location.

Make certain you check what your property taxes are going to be on that lake place. Here in OtterTax County there appears to be no upper limit. Lake cabin owners are a prey species in this part of the state.

I've lived on the lake for the past 7 years. I've never seen more than 6 or 8 boats at one time ...even on the opener. The south end gets very little boat traffic. Fishing is great. It's sooo quiet at night you can hear a mouse f*rt from 500 yards. There is an alge bloom that lasts for about 2 weeks but you'll get that on most lakes. You need to check the yard once the frost goes out as some of the homes here have "wet" yards due to springs and run off.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
