HISTORY AND STATUS OF FISHERY

Upper and Lower Ojibway (also known as Upper and Lower Dead or East and West Dead) Lakes are located in south-central Hubbard County, five miles north of Dorset. The two lake basins are connected by a small channel that can be navigated with a small boat. Upper and Lower Ojibway are managed and surveyed as one lake. Upper and Lower Ojibway have a combined area of 292 acres and a maximum depth of 34 feet. There is a state-owned public access located on the southwest shore of Lower Ojibway. Ojibway has excellent water quality and clarity, and supports good populations of largemouth bass, panfish, and northern pike.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has classified Minnesota's lakes into 43 different types based on physical, chemical, and other characteristics. Ojibway is in lake class 25. Other area lakes in this same class include Bad Axe, Belle Taine, West Crooked, Third Crow Wing, Eagle, Big and Little Mantrap, Little Sand, Spider, Straight, and Two Inlets.

Ojibway supports a healthy largemouth bass population. Spring electrofishing catch rates (89 bass/hour) were high when compared to other area lakes. The number of largemouth bass sampled over 15.0 inches was higher than past surveys. Good water quality, aquatic vegetation cover, and spawning substrate provide excellent habitat for largemouth bass in Ojibway.

Ojibway has an abundant panfish population and can provide good fishing for black crappie, bluegill, and pumpkinseed. The panfish population in Ojibway is known more for numbers than size. Anglers will find black crappie in the 9-11 inch size range and bluegill and pumpkinseed in the 6-7 inch size range. Bluegill and black crappie growth rates were slow when compared to other class 25 lakes.

Northern pike are abundant in Ojibway. The northern pike gillnet catch rate of 15.8 pike/gillnet was well above the range "typical" for this lake class and similar to past surveys. Sampled northern pike had an average length and weight of 21.1 inches and 2.0 pounds, with pike measured up to 31.5 inches. The northern pike population in Ojibway is limited by high reproduction and recruitment of young pike and slow growth rates.

Other species sampled included high numbers of yellow bullhead and moderate numbers of yellow perch. White sucker, black bullhead, and golden shiner were sampled in low numbers.
