Washington Clean up cancelled

11 posts in this topic

Due to all the snow we have received and the new snow coming I have decided to cancel this clean up. All the trash will be under the snow.

We will wait until a later date and re schedule again. Thanks to all those that had planned on helping.

Please let me know as soon as you reschedule so I can try to pull together a dive team to do the area "ajoining" the landing.

Either Otter or myself will get another one going. With the snow depth it looks like having one this spring and fishing slab crappies might be the time.

We will get this planned as soon as Otter and I can talk.

Thanks for the interest.

It's great to hear of others doing clean-up on area lakes. smile.gif Every spring I like to carry some trash bags along with me in my tackle box. If everyone did this, we can all make a difference in keeping our lakes and rivers clean for everybody. smile.gif And if it is you making the mess, shame on you. frown.gif

I didn't see any trash today but then again, if there is any, I think most of it is buried. smirk.gif

I believe that every landing will be snow packed. Iam sure wasington has PLENTY of garbage at the Westwood landing. Last year ity was either 11 or 13 bags picked up.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
