Resivor lake conditions

8 posts in this topic

We go up to Boulder every year for opener. Just wondering what the water level is like this year? I'm assuming low just like the past several years.

Everything is LOW in this area. Its been a while since seeing the St.Louis quite as low as it is now. Time will tell what run off we get. We are supposed to get more snow tomorrow through Wed.

Pray for rain. I think 1 foot of snow = 1 inch of rain. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I don't know about that, snow can be pretty dirty. I used snowballs a few times this winter to keep my minnows fresh...it made the water in my bucket very cloudy and dirty, much to my surprise. I'll stick with the ice or slush from the lake.

This time of year, because the ground cover is still dormant, slow melting snow puts less silt and other things into our lakes, rivers, and streams. Heavy rains this time of year wash all of the road salt, sand and other yuck right into drains and ditches that flow you know where.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
