Never fished this area before (S.E. Iowa boy), but a buddy talked me into coming up on 6/20 for a week. We're staying at Green Valley Resort, I think on 5th. What can I expect? How big is the lake? Where can I go from here? Walleyes, crappie, gills???

I'm a real newbie up here, but really stoked about the trip. Bringing my 16 yr old daughter (loves to fish!) so I want some numbers for her, but I'd like some size for myself...any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks - Matt Clark

There's no Green Valley Resort on 5th Crow Wing, nor 6th.

There is a Green Valley Resort on Pelican Lake, near Glenwood, south of Alexandria.

Can you check your destination?

does anyone know if it is possible to get from 4th to 5th by boat, and if so how shallow does the river get. in my 17.5 foot tracker w/ 90 horse i can get from first all the way to 4th but ive never tried any further.

fisher13,you won"t be able to make that with a boat of any size.There"s a dam wright outside of five that will stop you.I don"t think you even could if the dam wasn"t there except by canoe. gilby

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
