    Default Siren Again

    Well we are looking at heading up North to Siren again next week the 24 to the 30th. But with all the events going on now and resent rains not sure if the trip would be worth it. Or if we should move the trip to about middle of June. Any insight would be a big help.

    Not sure about Siren, specifically, but last weekend I fished a lake perhaps 30 miles East of there. It was up about 9 or so feet so near as we could tell vs what was shown on Lakemaster. This was a lake, not a flowage or river.

    I'm sure the extra several inches of rain they got up that way earlier this week hasn't helped matters any. Hoping to get back there Monday anyway.

    That aside, given all the Covid-19 whatnot going on, I'm not sure I'd be looking to travel several states away from home - for myriad reasons.

    That is a definite the water is up, we fished in 2018 about a 30 mile radius around Siren. The next year they went back snow, ice, and rain. I have tried talking them into postponing the time but they all have cabin fever. Being I am the youngest in the group, while the rest are pushing many seasons over 65. The Covid-19 is also a big factor I was worried about, what was open and what was not. I will show them this pic and hope it opens their eyes some. Thank you for the heads up Jeffmycrappieguy.

    No problem! We get cabin fever here in WI as well, but at least we are closer to the lakes so we know what the weather is like. Being a bit more south, like you are, I could easily see how it's in the 70's & 80's there and you get cabin fever bad, only to be shocked to find snow and ice here. LOL

    The temps haven't been too bad. Yesterday and today are in the 70s, but it's been 50s & 60s previous, and even freezing overnight yet a few times. Water is still cold. That lake in the pic, the highest we saw all day was 57. That lake is 45 feet deep at the deepest point we found. Yesterday I fished a lake that has an 8 foot deep hole, but is otherwise 4-5 feet deep, and the water was still only 62.

    Depending on the lake, I'm thinking it's going to be anywhere from 2-4 weeks before season really gets going around here. There is no new weed growth, and the pads were just starting to come up on the lake yesterday. The lake that was high last weekend - not a single pad or weed in sight yet. Caught them all on submerged timber. Supposed to be thunderstorms all this weekend, so coming up on your first two days would be shot anyway, and then it'd be chocolate milk for another day or two after that yet, depending on the lake.


    As for the Covid nonsense.... Our supreme court told the governor he is an idiot, and struck down his BS and allowed everyone to reopen. But they haven't. Driving home last weekend, the only way we could get food yet was via takeout, and I had little interest in trying to eat in the truck while towing home in the rain. It's nonsense, for sure. If you do end up coming, I'd plan on not going out to eat - at all - and cooking all your own meals. Some bars are open and might be serving food if you can live on burgers and onion rings for a week. LOL

    Yes the State Supreme court did strike down loser Evers but it is still up to local government to allow business to open or not.
