Any pictures of the lake?
MOON PHASE (98%)
Living down the street, it does make some sense due to the lake missing 2/3 of it's usual water this year? Although one has to wonder how much the compressed amount of fish together are going to damage their populations without enough to eat? We shall just have to see this spring?
My friend who has lived on the lake for 49 years and interviewed by the DNR and Milwaukee Journal because of the drawdown, etc.....confirmed that fishing this lake is completely shut down until the spring of 2018 which a final date is yet to be determined. I heard that March/April timeframe was recommended or until the lake comes back up to adequate levels. They do NOT want the fishery decimated by angler's pulling fish out which are/will be congregated in "pockets" of water which would be like fishing in a barrel as they said. The DNR is making a wise decision in this case.
I'm hearing that, due to the drawdown, they are shutting the fishery down for ice fishing. True? If so, what are the details...no fishing at all? catch and release only? Timing? Any links to the official decision available? I can't seem to find anything online.
