I saw in the paper there were some fellers from the DNR at the dam tossing sandbags around the edges of it.

We've done well catching catfish near the dam.

from the talcot dam head south to the gravel road just before you hit 62 take that and weave around the corner take it up to a circle stop on the point and you are there. as for on the lake, put in at the landing by the beach and head towards the dam, on the east side it's the only point.

thoughts on the dam after this snow and has anyone seen the windom dam lately the whole east sides rocks have been pushed out what does everyone think about all the riprap pushed 20+ft in windom it doesnt look good if you ask me doesnt mean it will go now but it will but when its gone with a big flood 95% sure it would go with lots of water

Actually if you look at whats upstream from the dam in Windom not much water should flow out, there is so much silt and fill from the dam upwards to the hwy 62 bridge and alot of willow brush and cattails just up from there that it would not be an all out "flood pre-say heading out" if the dam would let out the water flow from the east side rocks. I just would like to see the DNR or whom-ever dredge the river from the dam all the way up past plum bay to get rid of the big island in the middle of the river and all of willows and cattails like it was back in the 70's.

I wont lie I dont know whatit was like the but I see what you are saying it would be awesome if they would just drudge it but the money they always say but if they want a river they need to do something even if means removeing the dam but that may still not cure the problem of all the silt

The county park on Lime Lake is a good spot for shore fishing. Plenty of room and it's a nice park too.

If you fish below the dam you have a real good shot at some wall hanging snot rockets. Plenty of carp and bullheads to keep a guy busy also. If you fish the lake side, especially to the west of the dam, you're in a good spot for kitty cats. The lake side, east of the dam to the boat landing is good for perch, cats, and snot rockets.

Thank you Boiler it sounds like a great spot to entertain the Father-in-Law where he will be able to get a tug on the end of his line and enjoy an afternoon. Thanks again cool.gifcool.gif Thats what fishing is about helping others

Thank you Boiler It sounds like a good spot to take my Father-in-Law with very little effort on his part and he will be able to get a tug on the end of his line. That to me is what the forums should be about laugh.giflaugh.gif

The (Contact Us Please) blew on wednesday when the good ole DNR took the sand bags out. The water ran for 4 hrs. Lots of 5 plus pound northerns trying to jump back into the refuge. They did get it plugged back up again. Thats a lot of water coming out though.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish

      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
