Lake Emily

4 posts in this topic

I would like to try this lake for opener, maybe.

Any thoughts on this lake?

I was wondering how the ice fishing season was this past winter?

Thanks for any info!

the one in pope county right? Not to much for houses out there this past winter the water was really dirty from all the wind we had before it froze. Was a few guys out later that caught some. Shallow lake that warms up quick but likes to get dirty win the wind blows. few people gettig some cats out there now.

I talked to the guy at the bait shop at Starbuck, he said the lake really got fished down in the past few years.

He also told me there is a gate in the river to prevent fish from entering Emily from Minnewaska.

Is there any truth to these statemants??? confused.gif

Thanks for your reply!

Yes, the baitshop person speaks the truth. It was hit with extreme presssure on a hot bite and is fished down. It is a fertile lake and will recover with time, at which point it will get fished down, and the cycle continues.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      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
