Lake levels this spring.

2 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

From the posts I have read this winter, it seems the fishing has been only so - so. Glad you left a few in the water for me. I have been watching the news and trying to get a feel for how much moisture fell in the area since last fall. Lake Amelia was really low when we took the dock out, and I'm sure all the other lakes were low also. Do the lakes look much better this spring? I was kind of hoping this last rain and snow would really make a difference.

It all helps, and there are some lakes closing the gap to "normal", however, there are some that will take a lot more to get there. Pretty much depends on how big of a run off area each has. It's looking better though. Brent

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
