The pool is the part that is filled up behind the dam like a pool. The part down stream from the dam is the tailwater. So, pool 2 is the water backed up by Lock and Dam #2 which is by Hastings. Pool 2 extends up to the Ford Dam which is Lock and Dam #1. Pool 1 is above the Ford Dam. Upper and lower St. Anthony Locks don't have a pool designation. Those are the ones by the U of M.

The rest of the pools along Minnesota are pools 3-8. Dam #3 by Red Wing down to Dam #8 by Genoa, WI. There are more lock and dams south of there, but we won't worry about those. cool.gif

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!
