When they will be placing the riprap/rock at the dam at Drayton as they have at other Red river dams?

Thanks....Fisky

I don't know the answer to this question, Fisky, but I do know who will. Ed Carlson probably has caught wind of this, but he's been awol for a little bit- sounds like he's really busy. River Keepers in Fargo will know the answer. I'll try give them a call for you and see what they say.

Did you get my e-mail?

Fisky,

I spoke to Bob at River Keepers here in town-he's a wealth of information.
It doesn't sound good for the Drayton dam getting done anytime soon. The South dam in Fargo is next in line starting this coming winter. Then, the Hickson dam and the Christine dam are most likely next in line. Finally, the Drayton dam would be last in line.
Sounds like the Corps is doing a survery/study now on the dam to see if there is "slippage" of the dam structure on the ND side. The findings of this study could impact the order of the dam reconstruction. However, even if they decide it needs reconstruction soon, somebody needs to foot the multi-million dollar bill. In Fargo, over a dozen sources come together to pay the tab. Not sure who would do it in Drayton.

      My transducer issue was during open water.   My hypothesis after several transducers was that freezing them after having been in the water damaged them.    Once I stopped letting them freeze then they stopped going bad.   Maybe some water was getting into them and causing damage when it froze.   The transducer in my Minnkota  US2 is fine with freezing.

      I fished by the Lester area yesterday n today. I was in 75-78’ water. Had one school of coho’s chase my jig all the way to the bottom of the ice. I looked down the hole and was amazed by the fish just swarming around my jig and just nipping the tale. That was my very first time out there. Didn’t catch any, but seeing those fish made it all worth it. At Lester there is an Easier way out there if you go to the south side of the river. It’s an easier trail to follow out onto the lake. There must be some open water just north of there. There was a lot of mallards flying around and landing. ?

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.

      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?

      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄
