    Default Bloomington owned lakes open/no

    What is the latest word? Will they be opening Bloomington? If the people who live on the lake are allowed to fish so should the ones who have already paid for and received their 2020 boat sticker.. you canít allow one and not the other, that property is leased not owned.

    Please if any new news is heard put it on this thread. Thank you
    And with that, I'll see you on the water...

    As far as I can see this doesn’t say anything about fishing on the lake speaks only about the lodge. The rest of it is just standard lake rules

    not sure if anyone else has been out... got out for about 4 hours on wednesday no luck caught just 1 crappie and a couple small bass... Between the cloud cover and cold front, the only fish i could find on the radar were still in deep water in the open area close to the dam.

    Checked all the inlets next to the North put in (not the main) and shoreline and watched the 8-20 feet of water and didn't see much around ( was jigging/long lining/ and tried cranks and inline spinners at the end)
    Thanks Banjomarsh, silverside thanked you for this post
