For those wondering, I was on the lake yesterday and the water temps are as follows:

North End / Section 11 near Hwy F: 39.3 - 39.5

Main Lake: 40.5 - 41.1

Narrows / Dam: 40.3 - 40.5

With warmer weather and a little rain, temps should start to climb the next week or two now that the snow is almost gone (again). I did not fish, only took the boat out to run it. Tight lines!

Lake is totally ice free in the last few days. Lake levels have slowly subsided from Tuesdays' high levels but are still above normal by about 6-8 inches. There have been a few boats out from the section 11 landing. Ice is gone a month earlier from the last 2 winters where ice was not completely gone till mid-April.

Dr Spoon, as long as you are not targeting an out of season fish, any inadvertently caught fish may be released without penalty.

Out of season question:

What do the DNR rules state about catching a fish, such as a bass, walleye or musky before May 7th(opening weekend). Again, catching, not keeping. In other words, if I'm fishing with a jig and grub for crappie and a 30" musky grabs it, should I be cutting the line prior to reeling it in, or is it legal to land the fish and release it? I've always felt like this was a grey area that has never really been explained very well.

Thanks, -Spoon

The lake is now open, ice is gone. With all of the rain the water levels are very high (no wake high) and the water is very muddy from all of the sediment runoff.

Pictures taken at 1:10 PM today at Fox Court landing. Ice on the entire lake is very dark. I would expect open water fishing in the next 2 to 4 days. Woohoo! Smile

Is there an updated ice report? Any thoughts on when there will be open water? Thanks.

This is a report for Saturday. We were fishing in about 6-8 feet of water got a good load of about 15 bluegills and 5 crappies. We were in the far left area of section 11. Ice is definately good to drive out on because there were people all over the lake pretty much. Cool
