Lake Poinsett Fishing Reports

9 posts in this topic

Has anyone been by Poinsett Lately? I am curious if the heavy rains have helped the water levels at all. I drove by two weeks ago and water was coming in from dry, but very little coming in from Albert.

I'd like to see this lake back to normal some day!

Father-in-law was by poinsett today. Water is still coming in from both places. He said the outlet from Albert is running pretty slow yet because of all the weeds in the outlet.

The water is up some he said. He said all the lakes(albert, Mary, John)around Pionsett are full, so it should keep running into Pionsett for awhile yet.

I would like to see it full again myself. Makes launching the boat alot easier.

I talked to my brother in law on Tuesday the 14 th he lives by poinsett and said the lake is considered full but he would like to see another foot or foot and a half of water to be completely full

I have talked to a few people lately that say it's completely full. Not sure if this is rumor or not. Has anyone been by first hand?

Been there the past two weekends and I would say water levels are pretty normal. Easy to launch a boat at prestrudes it's certainly not full like 97 or 01 but good water levels. It's gotta be up 18-24+ inches from last year. You can float over the rocks by prestrudes point close to shore. Last year some of those were out of the water. The water level is probably similar to 2002-2003 from what I remember in my brookings days.

I was out on Poinsett Sunday and I saw a flash of 16ft on the graph for the first time in years! It was great to see.

Evidently, the lake still has a solid white bass population.

Man i wish i could see that lake again. My grandparents had a cabin on the south side of the lake, and i spend most of my childhood fishing. I think if memory serves me they were east of mudsons resort like 3 cabins or so. You all are bringing back some of the best times of my life. I remember when crappie fishing was as easy as just sitting there watching them jump out of the water. Oh well good luck someday i will get up there to see it all again.

Kind regards,

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
