Jim, where exactly was the fish kill down that way? I've heard a little about it on the news and was wondering what you've heard/know about it? We've had a couple around this area and I've been involved somewhat with the testing/investigation as to the cause and monitoring of the recovery of the streams/rivers. Thanks.

WW,
I haven't heard yet, I have been out of touch from media influence. What did you hear?

I checked out the KSTP search engine under fish kill and they had a short article on it. Appears a farmer (near Preston) was storing last/this years sweet corn sileage in an open end bunker and the juices ran out and made it to the Mahoney creek which is a tributary to the Root River. Sounds like they found a 2 mile stretch of the Mahoney with dead dace, chubs, sucker, minnows and brown trout. Hasn't made it to the Root yet. I guess it happened over the weekend. I hope it wasn't a significant amount? Let me know what you hear in the future.

Mahoney is between Fountain and Lanesboro and a little north. Dumps into root close to old power ****. I have not heard of any "bad" fish kill. I heard about it but haven't heard particulars yet. If anything unusual I'll post. JLK

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
