Aerial view of Lake Zumbro


Recommended Posts

I found this picture while looking at the internet. I thought I would post it for reference. Some people who never been out to the lake want to know where places are that we talk about. It's not the best picture but oh well.

Thanks for the info. That is handy. I'll post some more links that may help people to explore a bit.

Satellite view of Lake Zumbro that you can zoom in on and move around

Map view that you can zoom in to navigate and see what the streets are.

As a tip, click once on the map then use your arrow keys or the + or - keys to move around or zoom in or out.

Thanks for the map. How did you know i was a visual learner. Hey is there any way you can add high banks in there. That has always been a mystery to me. If you can't understandable you have already done enough. Much appreciated. ike

Look at number seven. Rattlesnake Ridge. It's long spoon shaped point. Sometimes we call it Neitz's point. Go straight out from there. Opposite shore. That's the high banks area. All the way along that shore.

To get an even better look of the lake via aerial photos, check out the full color orthophotos:

Interactive MN Aerial Photos

To find the lake, find the junction of Goodhue, Wabasha, and Olmstead Counties and look a tad northeast. With some zooming/panning you should be able to find it.

When you're close, Neitz's point and the highbanks will look like this:

I think I see Rick trying to get back in the boat back there.

There too. He spreads his water-worth around, ya know. He has sampled water temps at both ends of the lake. Real versatile he is!

There is no need to pick on somebody for sampling water temps.


Tyler,

I don't think Rick had as warm of water temps as you did testing the temps back in July on the Backwaters.

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?
    • MikeG3Boat
      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
