LOWER LAKE MARY — A fish kill has occurred.  There may not be any fish left.

UPPER LAKE MARY — The lake is full.

Where: Upper Lake Mary
When: 11/23/08
Caught: One Northern Pike
Technique: Frozen Anchovy
Comments: I fished Saturday, Sunday and part of Monday and caught the pike on an anchovy near the dam. It was about 16 inches long and seemed well fed with lots of color. What I would like to know is why I didn’t catch or even hook any yellow perch although I also fished with night crawlers much of the time. I fished all along the northern side of Lake Mary including the dam area. Where were the perch and what were they doing? The water temperature was, on my thermometer, 44 degrees. Thanks I didn’t see others catch anything either. Of course as always the lake and surrounding country side was very beautiful, especially around five thirty on Saturday when strange sounds from most probably disturbed elk could be heard from the opposite of the lake. Quite eerie and definitely very interesting and since I was by myself a little scary. Once again thanks for your web site.

KINNIKINICK LAKE — Road was still open last weekend.

Where: Kinnickinick Lake
When: 12/06/08
Caught: 22 Rainbow Trout
Fished from the bank using mostly worms and corn about 3 or 4 feet under a bobber.
Comments: Took Rory’s advice to sneak in a fishing trip while up north for a ride on the Polar Express. We had 3 adults and 4 kids who fished from about 11am to 3:30pm. Had the lake to ourselves except for the watchful eye of a bald eagle supervising our catch. 2 of the kids caught their first ever fish (and second and third!).
Name: Chris Motley
