Just in time for the fishing opener...

Lake Washington was sprayed on Monday.

Some say it doesn't hurt the eating fish after the annual spraying. Personally, I will C & R or hit another lake for a week or so. I wish the DNR would not allow spraying.

Sprayed for what? Weeds? Seems a little early for that.

I think everyone should call their Representative and let them know that you are against this. The DNR is forced to allow permits to kill vegetation. I believe killing vegetation is wrong they belong to all of the people of MN but if you live on a lake it gives you the right to destroy something that belongs to everyone.

Yep, weeds. They try to get aggressive with the curly leaf pondweed in hopes that native vegetation will take root.

Last year I saw hundreds of dead ears and crappies after the spraying. Coincidence?

I know that they started spraying Washington about four years ago and it sucks. The water should be very clear this time of year but now it looks like it should in the middle of July. What a bunch of B.S. They do it to a bunch of lakes in the cities and I think it ruins any chance of catching an eye in the weeds since they are almost all gone. My question is how can people who live on the lake have it sprayed when they only own the land and not the water.

I don't think it's the homeowners choice, I've never seen any info being asked for their opinions on this, I think the Lake Associations and the DNR are the ones to talk with

I have live'd on washington for about 9 years, they have been spraying for about 6 or 7 years for curly leaf pond weed. dnr says it does not harm fish. I think the timeing was bad this year. I love to fish and i do everychance i get. I am not saying it is right or wrong to do this, but before they started to spray , it was horrible to get around on alot of the lake. I think the crappie contest they have every year out here does more harm, last year 100 boats almost 1000 crappies caught when they were spawning.you can't tell me that does not hurt. if you want to voice your oppions or are interested in the lake, there is a meeting at westwood every third tuesday of the month, and it is open to everybody at 7pm. or go to the lakes web site and call a member of the lake associations.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?
    • Bigfatbert
      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles.
