Ice conditions are as good as it gets. No slush and only a few inches of snow on top unless we get more tonight. Predicting 3" or so. ATV should be no problem. Truck travel as always, at your discretion ??

I would greatly appreciate any update on ice conditions on Pine.  Depth, slush, snow cover, safe for truck travel, etc.  Thanks in advance.

Coming up this weekend, have the gills spawned out yet? With Pine being so shallow I imagine it warmed up quick. Any info is appreciated, thanks!

Looking at heading up to Pine Lake with the family and staying at the campground. I haven't heard of much from the lake this year other than the issues this spring. How has the fishing been lately?

Thanks for the updates,

Rob

MOON PHASE (12%)
Waning Crescent
Fished Pine 7/3,4 and 5th. water is 10" lower than normal pool level according to the dock markings. Did notice a heavy algae bloom which would be odd for this early with water temps only in the upper 60's. Found gills on the weed edges and over rock piles. Same as usual many throwbacks with some of cleanable size mixed in. Did get a few small perch and some crappies while looking for gills. Did get three walleye 2 @ 15" and 1 @ 14", several large mouth bass 8 - 14" and several smaller northern. Looked at the dam and there was 8" of space below the side spillway retainers and the water. The center spillway retainer was held up and had a 3" stream flowing out from under it where normally that is down tight and the water level is held up and controlled by the run over the top of the retainers. The die off may have been caused by the bacteria that forms when pine pollen is wind blown out and falls on the water, fish get this on their gills and and are then infected and die. The pine pollen can leave a yellow haze on the water if it is excessive. This normally affects gills and bass as they are usually shallow for spawning when this pollen occurs. Did notice that there was good weed growth at the 6-10' breaks making a defined weed edge in some spots I like to target. Did notice some good weeds in the 11-12' main lake basin as well. Took advantage of the long week there and fished elsewhere 7/6 to 7/11. The gills I caught elsewhere were noticeably thicker across the back than the Pine Lake gills of the same length. If they did redo the dam on Little Rice and lowered the water level there it might explain why they are keeping the center dam spillway retainer raised to let water out the way it is.

Water is at least 12 inches low. My boat no longer floats next to my pier. Was sitting flat on the bottom. Also large mouth fishing was horrible. I think 3 were caught between 5 people over 3 days. When normally we pull in well over 100. I Don't think the lake froze out. I think a desease killed the largemouth population. I still caught plenty of smallmouth, like and panfish. Just no largemouth.
