I heard through the grapevine that the barricades may be up until May 1? You may want to contact the City of Starbuck to find out for sure. They have had some problems with the entrance getting trashed each spring due to the weight of trucks on the asphalt.

Call the State of Minnesota. I know they received state money to build those accesses so the state may have something to say. They better be down when the ice is out so I can launch my boat!!!

Its hard to say with the fog, but Waska is at least 50-75% open. With the heavy rain we're supposed to get tonight id say its a done deal. No ice on the lake by monday or tuesday for sure. Hunts bay and most of the G-wood end is open though.

I'd say the same thing. Drove around the lake - looked like from Priest Point to Starbuck had some ice but the Glenwood side looked wide open atleast as far out as I could see. grin.gif

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]

      Yes, they are all done at the hatchery. Finished up two weeks ago this Saturday (4/15). Just waiting for eggs to ripen and hatch to go back out to area water bodies.
