Ice report in Whap

9 posts in this topic

What's the ice report in Whap? Where's the ice in relation to the dam? How far downstream from the dam has the ice pushed out?

By the big cat>>I went down there last night after work there is hardly any ice, it is almost all free flowing. There was some ice built up by the 210 bridge where some big chunks are holdin it up? The water was high though, if were talking about the same dam, the water only made ripples where the dam is so it is pretty flat with lots of water. Does anyone ever fish it this early with the high water and such?

That is a very good place for walleyes!!! I used to leave a couple blocks from there and once the water goes down the walleyes will turn on!!! I fished about 100 yards from the dam!!

Only 3????? You are doing pretty good. Last year, I went through over $50 in jigs and I lost more than a few jerk baits. (in 5 trips) and it just so happened that the eyes were hitting jigs that cost 4 for $3.oo.

      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.
