Did you and did they survive this past winter now that you have deeper water?


The lake will not officially be full until this spring/summer 2015 after snow melts. Since the water was still going to be so low this past September when I was back out there I decided not to risk killing all those Brookies and wait till the summer to put any fish in and install aeration. When I was out there last (September 24th) the water had come up about 6-8". Haven't seen it since then.
