Guess we won't be doing much ice fishing on Tamarack this winter. 😞

😊 Is nice to hear the filling has begun. Not many years ago, people was thinkin Tamarack was history.

Kudos, to FRIENDS OF TAMARACK and State Senator Michele Brooks (Greenville) for their work and support.πŸ‘

Mike, thanks for taking the time and posting an update. 🍻

Took a walk out on to the handicap pier a couple of days ago and there's now water around it.

Took a ride past the lake this morning.  Looks like it's at full pool or close to it.

WOW super pictures Mopars.

I don't think I ever saw the water that high up on the fishing pier.

Would be super if they'd leave the water level stay there.

Thanks for the update Steve.

Be a great place for a guy like me to practice using a kayak without fear of getting run over by some doorknob, running an gunning in search of crappie. 😜

If only I could lose the fear of getting stuck in a kayak, forever and day. 😬

Pretty sure ingress will be far easier than egress.

Still looking forward to some fishing and hoping this stupid virus comes under control soon.

Pictures are great and kinda make me homesick. What.... Wait, did I mention sick..... not me, forget I said that. Last thing I need is dudes in white paintsuits with Dr "Bones" McCoy Tricorders, searching for me.



Be well... stay safe.

OH yeah.... happy spring.

After careful consultation with my financial adviser, Dennis Celery of the tax preparer fame, I’m moving my assets into a new cryptocurrency that involves virtual toilet paper known as buttcoin. Keep it under your hat.

The financial stuff, not the virtual toilet paper.

The poster formally known as Duncsdad

Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.

Couldn't resist, had to see (maybe last time) for myself.

Not likely to be fishable for a year or two, I would assume, and too many other places where I can float my boat. πŸ€”Would have a legit excuse for not catching fish though.

Lots of good pictures for the many many memories first beginning as far back as the mid 60's.

Once again, congratulations to "The Friends of Tamarack".

Get that boat out.... today.☺ Thanks for the update. Heading southwest in a few days and may not get a chance to visit the area one last time. Tons of memories in my tackle box, though 🚣🎣

Does anyone know what the restocking plan looks like, now that there is water in it?  I imagine them trying to get panfish and baitfish established before introducing any bass, walleyes, or musky, but I haven't heard anything.

I spoke with one of the PFBC workers last fall as they started the refill and they were already putting in golden shiners and bass fingerlings. I haven't seen anyone down there lately to ask and I don't think your allowed to do any boating there yet either.

quote

.....Fish are returning as well. PFBC began restocking the lake over the summer: 11,000 golden shiners and 28,000 fathead minnows were released to provide forage for larger fish and 5,500 largemouth bass fingerlings, each about 6 inches long, were released in the lake this year, according to Parker.

In all likelihood, some unwanted carp also remain among the forage fish and bass that were added, according to Parker, since small pools of water remained in the lake even years after it was drained. Adding the largemouth bass fingerlings is an attempt to β€œjump-start the predator-prey relationship and eliminate some carp still existing in there,” Parker said.

The forage fish are expected to reproduce rapidly next year, when more panfish will be added. Over the next three years, sunfish, crappies and eventually muskies will be released. During that time, and likely for another year or two after, fishing will remain strictly catch and release as the fish populations are established.
