Was there over the weekend, just fishing from a rental (me and a friend each brought our dads up, so we didn't want to mess w/ portables). Fishing was pretty slow, but we managed to catch enough for meals each night. A glow red forage minnow jig on a set-line w/ whole fat-head about 6" from bottom was the best producer, followed by just about any glow spoon for jigging (except the buck-shots, which seemed to scare more fish off than they caught). I'm sure the fishing would have been better off the roads, but with the temps and winds, I'm glad we were in a nice warm rental. As for fishing off the roads, you'll need sleds after the wind that was there over the weekend. On Sunday morning, it took 3 trucks plowing almost non-stop just to keep the road open enough to get on/off the lake. Hope this helps, and good luck up there!

Thanks for the reply. hope the fishing picks up a bit in the next 2 weeks which it should. If not we'll have to do some scouting. 14 of us coming up in portables spread out should be able to find some fish. Kind of my pre wedding fishing trip.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
