Anyone know if the aerator on Cody lake is still cooking? Stopped by saturday on the way home from Mazaska and drilled a few holes, it was one of the worst smells I've smelled in a while and I still have a kid in diapers!! sick.gif Dropped the camera and didn't see anything dead or alive. We walked over by where the aerator was and instead of open water there seemed to be at least 6" in of ice and far as I cared to walk. I also dropped the camera down here as well and still saw nothing. As we left I noticed that phelps on the other side of the road has been opened to unlimited fishing. I sure hope it isn't freezing out but that smell was horrible and can't be good.

It was shut off because it was going to winter kill and by shutting it off hopefully it will make it a complete kill instead of just keeping the rough fish alive.

Sounds like (mostly)everything has already died on both of the lakes.

Anyone know what the plan usually is after a winter kill? I e-mailed the DNR but have not heard back from them yet. The lake can obviously hold a population of fish as I have had good luck out there since moving down here, at least early ice season that is. I'm wondering if the stock the full gamit or just selected species. Hopefully I'll get a response out of the waterville office but if anyone else has any idear, let me know. Hopefully this took care of the rough fish as well.

They will stock adult perch adult crappie, bluegill and a lot of walleye and northern fry plus what are club will spend on fish also. I believe it will not winter kill all the carp. We will try everything in our power to get this lake back to what it was. Trust me

Whoa? Liberized? I didn't expect that. I guess this Winter must've really been harsh on Cody & Phelps. It's one of my favorite Spring lake combo's. Too bad. Hopefully within a few years again.

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.
