Lakes Are Dying In Parkland Region of W. Manitoba

Recommended Posts

Guest

I apologize for this slightly out of context (not directly related to the Red and its tributaries ... and as a result I guess I'll be fishing on the Red a bit more this year!)notice, but I make this report with a heavy heart and I felt it was important for those who might want to be informed....

It's unfortunate but some lakes in the Parkland region of west central Manitoba have disolved oxygen contents of 0 ppm and they are still under three feet of ice!
In other words they are now on the brink of
extinction. This past weekend on one of my favorite local walleye waters I unpleasantly surprised by a smell of hydrogen sulphide when I drilled my first few holes.... an upon calling the local natural resources office, I was told that this lake as well as number of others have measured no oxygen.... I could see perch higher in the water column but they were not even interested in what we had to offer. Some of the lakes that may be effected include Kerr's, Imrie,lake 14, Thomas, Jackfish, and Sandy (which can be saved as there is a aeration system in place --- the only lake). Its sad when all of these lakes (about 4000 acres in lakes) had excellent populations of Walleye in the 18-24" range but our local game and fish organization invested money in our golf course
expansion.. lol :( ) I guess I'll be travelling a bit more often to the Red this year ... and maybe next

Bummer! There will be some in the SD/SD/MN region who have the same fate I am afraid.

What are the conditions on the Red River in the region, sloppy ice? I have heard of some fair fishing near the lake but the shoreline was flooded.

So far a slow melt on my end that will help the flooding this spring if the melt remains mild.

Any news on the River bite?

Thanks....><,,>

I'll have a report Sunday night about the lower Red. I'm going out to do a little Red River "Jig", if you know what I mean wink.gif

      Yeah I'm planning and scouting starting next week.  Any help is appreciated.   Also a reminder....   You will need a new fishing license as of 3/1/19.  The warden often comes by to say "hi"  and chat for a bit at our gathering.   I would hate to have someone forget.   Especially me. 😉

      I got stuck on West Rush Wednesday.  Thanks to Nick?  P  from Rush City for helping me get out.  I couldn't budge.  Mike from Mike's towing was going to come out and rescue me but Nick saved me a bundle!  Thanks, Mike for being willing to come out on the ice.    Just wondering how travel is on Rush and Pokegama this weekend.  I will be hesitant go get out until the snow gets packed down on a bit.!!!

      Might want to have him call a realtor but I think there is something open in that strip mall behind McDonald's. A friend retired and closed his jewelry store and that spot might work good. I think it's called Pokegama  Plaza. Next to Edward Jones and Sears.

      Hey PRO V, you wouldn't happen to know of any office spaces for rent in rapids would you? My co worker is maybe thinking of moving our office up there if he can find a reasonable price and enough room for his cabinets.

      I am going to put a get together on Blue Lake in March!! I am thinking the second weekend at the time. My question is would Saturday or Sunday be best for most of you? This will be out of the north access as I have work on finding a good spot with active fish yet. Please let me know and if you are interested in helping find a spot with active fish. Thanks
