Re: Tamarack Lake............ 2018/11/14 07:36:30 (permalink)
 My son is now 28 yrs old and we fished Tamarack one fall when he was in high school so about ten + years ago. We trolled and casted for Musky. We ended the fall boating 14 and one 26 in eye. One evening we boated 5 and lost a couple. We had a ball and returned them all. I was going to keep one the last day we fished and hooked one not two minutes after launching. I released it as it was just a whisker shy of 40 inches and I figured we were going to crush them that evening. That being the last year of 30 inch is legal I figured a shorter one would taste better. That was the last hit we had and the last time we fished Tamarack. Good memories.

Does anyone know if the lake will be fishable by spring?

Lake will probably closed until spring of 2020 if the PFBC follows the schedule they used last time they drained it.  The other factor will be how long it takes the lake to fill back up.  If I get a chance this week I'll check to see if it has started filling

Just took a ride past the lake. No sign of activity on the Meadville end and although the dam looks completed  it looks like a lot of grading work needs to be finished. Crews were moving a lot of materials around and it looked like the gate system was completed on the Cochranton end but the temporary dam is still in.   So I'd say it will be spring time before they shut the gates and start filling the lake up.

Thanks Mike. I tried getting over there today, to Tamarack, but got waylaid at a real estate office in Meadville.

Will be exciting to watch the lake refill.

Channel 24 Erie news just reported today at noon that Tamarack Lake will be started to re-fill sometime in Mid-April and is expected to take 6 months to do that. With the rain we  have had, I would expect it to fill sooner if it stays as wet as it has been. Good news for a change. They say the dams should last for the next 50 years...Let us hope so...

Ohhhhhhh surrrre........ I leave town for a few months and they decide to refill the lake. See how they are!!!!

On a lighter note, I'll be very happy to see how the dams look, in fifty years. 😂

Thanks for posting the info Olds.

Kudos to the "Friends of Tamarack" in getting the lake refilled. 🍻

Well BTDT, in 50 years from now I will be 125 and I hesitate to think what I might look like...much less the 2 dams

Ha haa..... I hear you but dont let that old age thingy bother ya. They say you are only as old as you feel.

I say "BS" cause if that were the case, I'd be 125 already. lmao
