DNR Stripping Walleye Eggs

Recommended Posts

huntfish44

Anyone know if the DNR are stripping the walleye eggs at the DNR headquarters yet. I know its pretty early yet with most lakes still having quite a bit of ice but just wondering so I could come up and watch for awhile. Pretty interesting stuff watching them handle all those walleyes!!

They started putting the posts in for the spawning platform this morning. They should have everything setup by the end of tomorrow. All we can do now is sit back and wait for the water temps to rise....

Looks like maybe Tuesday they will be stripping eggs. I'll find out on Monday if they'll be setting the leads out Monday night.

Hey all, where is the headquarters located that they do the stripping at? That might be neat to see!

New to the site and the area and hope to meet some of you out on the water.

Welcome too FM. The site is at the fisheries department located on Sallie Lakes. Go out on highway 59 from DL until you get too the BP, take a right, i believe its highway six, down the road a few miles you will see a brown sign that says where the department is. Just down the road there. Its real cool to see. I will probably miss it this year due to school, but definitly worth your time to see.

Deadhead will have more direct directions for you!! wink.gif

Good Luck

from DL go south on hwy. 59, take a right at co. hwy. 6 and go west about 1/2 mile. take a left on co. hwy. 19 and you'll run right into it. Also, we were down there yesterday and saw a couple nice northerns in there.

Sweet, I will have to stop by and take a look. I saw the hatchery between richville and ottertail must be getting ready to get to work too because there were guys pulling in there today. Do you just walk down and look at the water, or will nets be out or??? I dont' know anything about this, and am looking for things to do just to get out of the house:

when you get down to the Area Office, please stay to the left and park at the County parking lot. There is a picnic shelter there (it is behind the hatchery and shop areas). Walk down to the bridge at Dunton Locks. The Walleye spawning platform is setup at the outh of the river and all the nets are set up. You'll be able to watch the operation from the bridge or on the other side of riffle.

Be there by 830 am, that's usually when they start.

      When trolling the raps on a 3 way rig how fast are you going generally if you don’t mind me asking

      The people that used to fish Mille Lacs are migrating north because of all the issues down there.  The resort where I stay (on LOW) has noticed a large increase in Mpls traffic.  I believe fishing pressure is rising up north because of this.  Another thing is boats are much bigger now than 10 years ago allowing more people to get on the big water more easily along with the wheelhouse frenzy on the ice.  It all adds up to more fish harvest.   Don't think ML will ever get back to anything close to what it was.

      Jetsky, I was skunked yesterday afternoon in Frazer, but did very well today (9:30-11:15, 4:00-5:30) . 20-25 feet, jig or Lindy with a leech or crawler

      I take it medals are for carp only? I'll try and make it. Love me some carp.

      Awesome Hoey. Fished yesterday and today (wed) and the bite is good. Tues morning had no wind so there were a few hundred fish flies in the boat and your ears and most everywhere until the wind picked up midday. Caught a bunch of nice . eaters in 5 - 8 feet of sand.  Bigger fish are showing up on the reefs. Not all rocks seem to have fish, but most do. The best bite is probably in the mud. Fish flies everywhere and today lots of mayfly action up north. Lots of fish in 30+ right now. This is such an awesome lake. Good luck

      Well said, Hoey. Regarding large walleyes eating small walleyes...…...a number of large walleyes every year chow down on my yellow, chrome and red (clown) Rapala TDD 11's, black headed white bodied and polka dotted (wonderbread)Reef Runners and a full spectrum of colored shad raps......not 1 of which resembles natural baitfish. So large walleyes won't gobble down a native fish of small proportions? Gimme a break. We need to insure that LOW does not become the new Mille Lacs. By the way, fishing is fantastic on ML currently. Pretty much all bigger fish. I would hate to not have a fish dinner after a day on the lake.

      If fan selection is set to high or low fan runs all the time. Set fan control to auto, fan starts and stops with compressor run.

      got an answer from coleman mach- they said all of their AC units are compatible with a thermostat, but you would also need to install a control box as well for the thermostat to communicate with it

      Thanks Cliff.  I was pretty sure you weren't using both at same time because law and because a itty bitty shad rap wouldn't get down that deep.  😀
